I assume that you have checked your thyroid
status already. If you have not, it is best to get it done along with a hemoglobin
estimation to exclude anemia
. Hair loss can occur due to a variety of causes and deficiencies in iron, zinc and biotin can be responsible so it is best to be assured that these are not the underlying causes. A hormonal
cause in women can be estimated by doing a study of the hormone levels in the blood. If the hormones which cause hair loss are found to be elevated then specific treatment can be directed to them also. Mintop 2% actually increases blood flow to the hair follicles and can cause some hair regrowth from atrophic follicles, therefore if you do not have any problems with its use you can continue it. Finally, if you have a zone which is not responding to these medications, you can resort to hair transplantation
to fill in the defect.
