How to prevent hair loss?

I am 27 years old, I weight 162 pounds and I'm 5'2. Lately my hair has been falling out. I've consulted this with my regular doctor, he says that I'm probably loosing my hair due to stress. He offered to prescribe me anxiety medication without doing any type of test, blood test etc. I honestly do not believe this, since I know I am not stressing more than the usual. As far as I'm concerned I am healthy, I've never had any serious health problems. Please help! At this pace I feel like I'm going bald, you can actually see a lot of my sculp now. How can I prevent loosing my hair, what can I do to promote hair growth? What kind of testings do I need to find out why I'm loosing so much hair?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You might be suffering from androgenetic alopecia.you can try topical minoxidil and PRP treatments. Get a blood work up done prior to that. you can even consider hair transplant as you are young and the results will be rewarding.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
