Question: FOR Dr. Bhagyesh V. XXXXXXX

Sir i have one question and i hope you will reply same like before. Sir from last 1 year my hairs of beard are going white. And i am seriously thinking about it. I found first white here in my head when i was 20 year old. And now i am 31. Sir can i stop my beard white color hairs? Is there any possibility.
Sir does only stress can do this to me ? Or i have some serious disease inside?or its only genetic problem?

Brief Answer:
Multiple factors can be behind this but surely nothing serious to worry .

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX , hi

Warm welcome again to
I have evaluated your query thoroughly .

* There are variety of conditions which give rise to premature grey hair as

- low hemoglobin - thyroid disorders - vitamin B 12 deficiency - genetic
- stress related - others

* Ultimately there is no serious disorder in any of above to raise your stress level
but definite reason evaluation needs in person evaluation with your doctor
and certain lab tests .

* In your case , it seems combination of factors .
* Multivitamin can help to slower down its progress , but not stop it as it is
already 11 years ( first white hair in head when you were 20 ) .

* Carry home message is

- Avoid stress , anxiety .
- Balanced nutritious diet .
- Genetic factors are beyond your control so do not panic about the same .

Hope this clears your query .

Wishing you fine health always .
Regards .
