Dear Hair Loss: My name is Karen. I am a 27-year-old woman who is in great health (at least I think). Workouts are on my schedule 3-4 days a week, I am a vegan and work hard on getting enough protein in my diet, drink plenty of water and still my hair is falling out. What is going on?
Dear Karen: From your description above the first 3 thoughts that come to mind are; 1) Has something major happened in your life within the past 9 months? Covid, break up, etc…. 2) When was the last time you had a physical with a wholistic blood work up? This means, all hormones, thyroid tests, vitamins, and minerals. 3) Do you have a genetic predisposition? Parents, grandparents, aunts have thinning hair.
Hair loss is a complicated topic with varying roads to travel in the quest for answers. The first step, and many times the hardest is determining the cause/s. As with any health concern, we need to understand the cause/effect scenario to determine treatment options. Start looking for your answers with factual evidence and get your blood work.
