While on this thread I strongly recommend doctors and readers alike to read the research carried out by this foundation before starting any medications.

Excellent Job done Mr Doctor. Hair transplant is an artistic job so its needs skills like you. Surgeons who are not much experienced & less qualified leave scars after surgery.

This is another oft asked question.
Many people want to believe that their hairloss is due to a disease and will be reversed completely by curing the disease.

That may be the case in some. Unfortunately, not in all.

I have found an easy way to help differentiate and explain the type of hairloss is by understanding the concept of pattern hairloss .

Androgenic alopecia, or the commonest form of balding follows a pattern.
The hairloss starts in the temples, hairline and/or the crown. There will be variations, but it almost never effects the sides and the back of the scalp

Diseases usually do not follow the same pattern.

Some diseases where you may experience hairloss but which are not androgenic alopecia are -
* Alopecia areata, globalis and universalis . For further reading see this link
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alopecia_areata

* Psoriasis . Additional pictures and information is available at
http://www.fusehair.com/node/570
http://www.psoriasis.org/home/

* Hormonal imbalances (especially thyroid).

* Lichen planus. Additional information and pictures available at http://www.dermnet.org.nz/scaly/lichen-planus.html

* Post chemotherapy, or due to injury (burn, surgical or accidental)

* Trichotillomania . Additional information about this unusual condition can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trichotillomania

* Traction alopecia (due to sustained and long term traction on the hair roots). Two commonest sub groups affected by this are Black women wearing tight braids and Sikh gentlemen wearing hair tightly under their turban.

There are many more rarer causes and maybe veteran readers will be able to add them to this thread. But to keep this short, I will desist. Sufficient that you get a brief idea of the types of hairloss.


A good first step is to contact your family physician as the first step. He should be able to rule out or advise tests for hairloss due to reasons other then androgenic alopecia.


Adding to Dr Arvind, the genetics of baldness is the basic concept we need to understand. Baldness happens because of the genes people inherit from both their mom and dad. Some studies show that 80% of balding is genetic.

A key gene can come from a maternal grandpa. But this gene doesn't explain all baldness. People are just as likely to be bald if their dad or their maternal grandfather is bald.

Two new studies have fingered a small region on chromosome 20 called 20p11 as being associated with balding. This sort of thing could explain people who are bald even though their mom's dad still has a full head of hair.

Scientists don't know how this DNA is involved or even what part is involved. All they know is that people who are bald tend to have a certain version of 20p11.

One study found that having this DNA could increase a man's chances of going bald up to 4 times. If men also have certain versions of another gene, then the odds go up as high as 7 times.

The other study found a different bit of 20p11 was involved. They concluded from their study that the increased risk was as high as 3 times.

These two bits of DNA are pretty close together and are probably pointing to the same part of chromosome 20 as being important. Unfortunately neither group found out why these bits of DNA increase someone's risk for hair loss. There aren't even any genes close by. So obviously there is still a lot of work to be done.
