Doctors recommend that when hair loss occurs, the first thing to do is to take a test for vitamins in the body.
This is no accident!
For sudden hair loss, as a rule, there is a reason that lies in the state of health of a person. Sometimes hair loss is due to stress, and sometimes it is due to a sudden change in diet. This effect is especially noticeable for citizens who decide to become vegetarians overnight. As a result, the body lacks important vitamins and micronutrients and ceases to assume its responsibilities. To reduce the cost of maintaining the normal state, it gets rid of the “extra”. Sometimes it’s hair.
This version is supported by many nutritionists and trichologists.
There is a disease – no hair.
Nutritionist Olga Kovalenko described iron deficiency anemia as one of the most common causes of hair loss. As is known, this condition may be caused by pre-existing chronic diseases (especially autoimmune and endocrine diseases). This includes digestive problems or an unbalanced diet. According to Kovalenko, vegetarians are especially at risk.
Another factor affecting the condition of the hair is the presence of an inflammatory process in the body.
However, whatever you suspect is the cause of your illness, the doctor recommends that you not engage in self-medication and seek help from specialists.
Do a blood test
First of all, a nutritionist advises to take a test for vitamins and trace elements.
In case of hair loss, the first thing to check is the status of vitamins B12 and B9, ferritin, hemoglobin, transferrin, serum iron, and total protein. Often attention is paid to only one of these indicators – hemoglobin, which does not reveal the full picture of the deficiency and does not indicate the degree of iron deficiency anemia, – said the expert.
It is equally important to monitor whether the body contains a sufficient amount of zinc. This trace element is important for the normal functioning of the sebaceous glands and the strengthening of hair follicles.
It is also important to check for vitamin D, which effectively stimulates hair follicles.
In addition to the treatment prescribed by the doctor, it is also necessary to help the body restore hair growth and its competent behavior: establish a healthy sleep, quit alcohol and smoking, eat well and try not to be nervous.
