What are the symptoms of hair problems? Hair loss, dandruff, thinning hair, etc. What are the conditions and deficiencies in the body? How can we prevent them? What are the recommendations of dermatologists and hair experts in this regard?
Sudden changes in hair, such as hair loss, or hair thinning, are all signs of treatable health problems.
Graying hair and stress: Everyone knows that stress makes the hair on the head gray. By causing inflammation, stress causes the pigment producing cells to fail.
Brittle hair and Cushing’s syndrome: Brittle hair is a symptom of Cushing’s syndrome. This syndrome occurs due to an increase in the secretion of the hormone cortisol from the adrenal gland and causes symptoms such as high blood pressure, fatigue, and back pain. For some people, the treatment of this syndrome requires surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Dry hair and thyroid disease: People with hypothyroidism may notice increased hair loss and changes in their appearance. Hypothyroidism means that your thyroid gland is not working properly and this disorder can lead to fatigue, cold intolerance, joint pain, muscle pain, puffy face and weight gain.
Hair loss and anemia: If you suddenly notice hair loss on your head, this could be a sign of iron deficiency anemia. A blood test can determine the level of iron in your blood. People who are vegetarians or women who have heavy periods are more likely to suffer from this condition. Iron supplements and changes in diet by consuming iron-rich foods control this type of hair loss. Hair loss can also occur temporarily due to sudden changes in estrogen levels after pregnancy or after stopping birth control pills.
Hair thinning and lack of protein: Protein is an essential part of building hair, so if you don’t consume enough protein, you will notice hair loss and thinning. People with gastrointestinal problems or people who have had gastric bypass surgery may have problems absorbing protein. These problems can be treated by a doctor. But be aware that most thinning hair, even in women, can be hereditary.
Yellow seeds and dandruff: The presence of yellow or white flakes between your hair, or even eyebrows, is a sign of seborrheic dermatitis. Dandruff shampoos and cortisones prescribed by a doctor can treat dandruff. Dandruff can occur due to yeast or skin inflammation. Dandruff usually worsens in winter.
Damaged hair: Hair can indicate the health condition of the body. Dyeing and heating the hair (such as hair dryers, hair straighteners, etc.) can cause hair damage. Dyeing and heating the hair makes them brittle and dry.
