I am a 18 year old male. I had lost 60 pounds with in 4-5 month period with restricting food intake and exercising 6 out of 7 days of the week. Ever since I had noticed more hair was falling out and it was getting thinner. Now Im starting to eat more I decided to visit the doctor. he sent me to the dermatologist and the dermatologist said I might have male pattern baldness or hair loss due to stress. He was leaning more towards male pattern baldness because he saw the middle of my scalp was more visible and thinning more and he thinks the weight loss made my male pattern baldness come ever earlier. surprisingly no one in my family, moms family or dad’s family had male pattern baldness. And before my weight loss my hair was very thick and strong. I really need some help should I go to another doctor to look at my hair loss problem? Any suggestions would be ever so useful please and thank you my friends.
Diets that tend to reduce a good, balanced nutritional intake of foods are known to cause acceleration of the genetic balding process. If it isn’t a genetic process, the stress from the malnutrition could cause the hair loss. But if you’ve already seen a doctor that suggested your hair loss appeared to likely be genetic, I couldn’t dispute that since I haven’t examined you for myself.
