    Alopecia Areata: What are its possible causes?

    Hair loss is a common concern affecting the self-confidence and esteem of both men and women. No doubt, hair loss triggers a massive change in a person’s life, and that’s why they begin to look for options that help the hair get into a manageable state. Hair transplant in Punjab is suitable for patients who have started noticing bald patches on the scalp. Now, it’s essential to understand the possible reason behind alopecia areata.

    Most common causes behind Alopecia Areata

    Genes and hormones

    Androgenic alopecia (Male pattern baldness) or female pattern baldness is one of the common alopecia types. Men can face the problem of a balding and receding hairline, whereas women have widening of their parts and hair thinning. There’s a possibility that androgenetic alopecia is a hormonal condition.

    DHT binds with testosterone in hair follicles and might make them weak. With the higher level of  testosterone and estrogen the hair health gets affected. Moreover, when the hormones are not balanced, the women can have PCOS that triggers hair loss. So, hormones and hair loss are linked in one way or another.

    If you notice your hair loss has started to get worse with time, then ask the surgeon whether the FUE hair transplant in Ludhiana is the proper manner of managing the problem effectively or not.


    One of the common types of alopecia is telogen effluvium, which leads to hair shedding. The problem can likely happen all of a sudden or might occur with time. For better understanding, here are some common causes behind telogen effluvium: stress, childbirth, medication, physical trauma, lifestyle changes, restrictive dieting, and other reasons.

    Sometimes, hair loss in women can help to detect an underlying reason for hair loss. And that’s the reason you must get everything analyzed and take the necessary action. Some studies have shown that alopecia areata can occur due to health concerns like asthma, hay fever, stress, and other factors.


    Sometimes nutritional deficiency can pose a more significant effect on hair health. There’s a possibility that Vitamin D or iron levels will go down significantly. And that’s the reason for alopecia. Until now, there’s not enough study that shows the relation between Vitamin D and hair loss. So, be mindful and take prompt action in addressing the situation.

    Thyroid issue

    The thyroid is another common cause of alopecia areata. The thyroid gland controls the hormones. And sometimes, the lower and overactive thyroid can have problems that lead to alopecia. You must be careful and consult the doctor to get a thyroid test. Moreover, the thyroid issue can accompany other health concerns like high or low energy, menstruation change, or unexplained weight change.
