What is Hair Loss?

Hair loss is where new hair does not grow in replacement of where hair has fallen out. It is normal to lose between 50-100 hairs per day however; this will normally grow back unlike male pattern baldness which is a term for permanent hair loss.

What are the symptoms?

Signs and symptoms may include:

  • Sudden hair loss
  • Patchy or circular bald spots
  • Gradual thinning of hair on the top of the head over time

What causes Hair Loss?

  • The most common cause of hair loss is due to family history (heredity) and this comes with ageing.
  • Stress can cause hair loss
  • Some supplements, medications and hormonal changes may cause hair loss
  • An illness
  • Cancer treatment
  • Weight loss
  • Iron Deficiency

Treatment of Hair Loss

Propecia contains a medicine called finasteride. This belongs to a group of medicines called Type II 5 alpha reductase inhibitors. Your doctor has prescribed Propecia because you have male pattern hair loss (also known as androgenetic alopecia). Propecia increases hair growth on the scalp and prevents further hair loss in men. Men with mild to moderate, but not complete hair loss, can benefit from using Propecia. Propecia lowers the levels of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in the scalp. This helps to reverse the balding process, leading to an increased hair growth and prevention of further hair loss.
