Hi friend, Welcome to Health care Magic forum..

I read your query and I like to inform you that values should be measured against your previous hair profile and your ethnic & familial traits.
I am telling you the interpretation of this study with regards to average indian ratios... It would be best to co-relate the results with clinical findings.
Your average hair density is 179.6 as against average of 200/cm2 but still with in normal range of 170-220/cm2.

With telogen effluvium, the anagen/telogen ratio has been shifted to 70% anagen, 30% telogen.

This kind of study with supporting clinical data would represent telogen effluvium. Since you are suffering from last 6months, I would diagnose you as a case of starting stage of telogen effluvium.

I advice you to eat protein rich foods with good vitamin rich foods to decrease hair fall at earliest.
Avoid stress in life , be relaxed by meditation or relaxing techniques.

Hope I Provided useful information.
Best Regards,
