I’m 32 years old/female. I have recently been diagnosed with CAH and wanted to find out if there is any chance my hair will grow back if my condition is being treated and the hormone levels (DHEA-S and 17a-OH Progesterone) return to normal levels. Does hair loss in the pubic region, eyebrows, and eyelashes also occur in patients with adrenal disorders?
The scope of hair loss varies with individuals that have CAH. If you happen to have the genes for hair loss in women, then CAH could activate the process. If you get your hormones under control, chances are that your hair loss may grow back. You might have to wait one or two hair cycles (5-12 months) to know one way of the other. Hair loss could occur anywhere on the body, including the pubic region, eyebrows, and eyelashes. See eMedicine for more information.
