What Your Hair Loss Can Tell You About Your Health?

hair loss

Our hair can tell almost everything about our health. Shiny and voluminous hair is a good indicator of good health. If you hair looks brittle or dry, this might mean you are experiencing some health problems. What is more, hair loss can be a sign of some serious diseases.


If you are experiencing hair loss, this might be a sign of anaemia. Anaemia is a blood disease that is commonly seen in women. In this disease, iron levels in your blood will go down. Since iron levels are insufficient, you might experience some health problems. Hair loss is one of these problems. You need to treat your anaemia to stop hair loss.


If you are experiencing serious hair loss, you might have problems with your thyroid levels. Low thyroid levels cause hair loss as well as other problems. If you have eliminated other reasons, you might want to check your hormone levels. These might be the underlying reason for your hair loss.

Protein or Vitamin Deficiencies

Hair thinning might be a sign of protein or vitamin deficiency. We need all these proteins and vitamins to build our cells. This includes our hair cells and hair roots. Insufficient vitamin and protein level might slow down hair growth. This might cause hair thinning and even hair loss.

Cushing’s Syndrome

Your brittle and thin hair might be a symptom of Cushing’s syndrome. You might want to consult to an expert to discover the underlying reason.

Before considering hair transplant for your hair, it is always better to discover the underlying reasons. In some cases, you might not even need hair transplant. Simple medication and treatment might help reducing hair loss at significant levels. This way, you can save time and money. For this reason, you should consult to a doctor before considering hair transplant operation.
