Male Pattern Baldness

If you are one of the many Miami-area men suffering from baldness or hair thinning, you are most likely suffering from androgenic alopecia, or male pattern baldness.

This condition affects approximately 95% of the men who are experiencing hair loss. Hair loss can take a devastating toll on your self-esteem. Losing hair can create a lack of confidence in social situations, and produce lasting negative psychological side effects.

It may not give you peace of mind, but you should know that you’re definitely not alone—approximately 80% of men under the age of 70 suffer from some form of hair loss. There are several reasons for hair falling out, and one or more of these could be the reason behind your balding condition.

Causes of Hair Loss

  • Genetics: Male pattern baldness is most often linked to genetics. If baldness or thinning hair runs in your family, it greatly increases your chances of losing hair at some point in your life. While there are other reasons, many of which we’ll discuss here, androgenic alopecia leads the list of hair loss causes.
  • Prostaglandin D2 protein: Recent studies have indicated that an abnormal amount of the prostaglandin D2 protein in the scalp increases your chances of losing hair. This protein acts to block hair growth.
  • Excessive pulling: Also referred to as traction alopecia, this condition effects people who consistently wear their hair in a manner that involves excessive pulling of the hair, such as cornrows or ponytails.
  • Medications: Several medicines can cause hair loss, including those taken for high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and heart disease.
  • Traumatic events: Experiences that are traumatic to the body can provoke hair loss. These might include events such as major surgery, chemotherapy, radiation or poisoning of some kind.
  • Stress: Extremely stressful or frightening situations can cause hair loss.
  • Poor nutrition: A poor diet and/or certain vitamin or mineral deficiencies can bring about hair loss. This is particularly true when the deficiencies involve protein, biotin and zinc.
  • Thyroid conditions: Either an underactive or overactive thyroid can create hair loss.
