Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 25-year-old female. I have been suffering from severe hair loss recently and it has become a cause for concern and distress for me. I want to know the potential causes and contributing factors of my hair loss. I would like to receive recommendations on available treatment options for hair loss, both medical and non-medical. I would like to know about dietary and lifestyle changes that can promote hair health and possibly reduce hair loss. I need advice on hair care products and practices that can help maintain healthy hair and potentially slow down further hair loss. Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

With passion, commitment, and experience, I hope I will be able to provide you with top-class medical opinion.

Causes of severe hair loss could be physical illness, stressful episodes, mental stress, lack of proper nutrition, poor sleep, insufficient protein intake, systemic disorder, or certain medications like anti-thyroid or anti-anxiety pills etc. I suggest you do the following:

  1. Increase protein intake in your diet.
  2. Avoid junk, oily, or spicy foodstuffs.
  3. Eat healthy and nutritious food.
  4. Eat more greens.
  5. Drink plenty of water.
  6. Follow de-stressing measures as needed since stress is a big contributing factor in hair loss and can cause hormonal imbalance.
  7. Multivitamins containing hair pills can be taken to supply nutrition to the hair follicles.
  8. Lifestyle modifications are needed. Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption as these can decrease supply to hair follicles (if applicable).
  9. I hope you had a pleasant experience at icliniq.

    Thank you.
