Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Hair fall is a very common issue nowadays. There are several causes for hair fall. It may be genetical or acquired. Acquired hair fall may be due to changes in food habits and lifestyles, using excessive shampoos and conditioners, using hot water to wash hair, direct exposure to sunrays, consumption of salty and sour foods, etc.

Some diseases like diabetes, hypothyroidism, chemotherapy treatment also lead to hair fall. Raised DHT hormone level is also responsible for hair fall. So there is a need to know the exact cause of hair fall and try to resolve them physically or medication.


Investigations to be done:

Blood sugar fasting and PP, thyroid profile, DHT, lipid profile.
