“It’s emotionally upsetting and frustrating to experience unusual hair loss. However, it’s usually a sign of an underlying condition that, once treated, often results in regrowth of hair.” Jay Brachfeld, M.D.

HealthyAnswers.com publishes a new report relating hair loss/thinning could have hidden, treatable causes. HealthyAnswers.com reports that although it is normal for people over-50 to lose a certain amount of hair every day, excessive hair loss may be a sign of underlying hidden causes. These can include heredity, hormones, thyroid deficiency, immune system disorders, scalp infection or disorders, stress and even the type of styling tools and products used.
HealthyAnswers.com medical expert, Jay Brachfeld, M.D., further explains hair loss: “Most people normally lose between 50-100 hairs a day and is not noticeable at this amount. It’s when more hairs are lost per day that thinning may become noticeable and a concern. That’s when I start to look for a hidden cause. There may be a deficiency in the B vitamins or lack of adequate protein intake, or traumatic stressors that may have caused a shock to the system resulting in hair loss.”
