Hair Loss

There are many reasons for hair loss or hair thinning including thyroid disease, iron deficiency, pregnancy, autoimmune conditions, chemotherapy, stress, and hormonal changes.

A thorough history and physical, sometimes including laboratory testing is recommended.

Homeopathic and sometimes pharmacologic medicines are prescribed depending on the cause of the hair loss.  Treatment usually takes months to years to stabilize this condition and complete hair regrowth may not be possible if the hair follicles are no longer present due to scarring or atrophy.
