I am sorry to hear that your hair loss and thinning is causing you worry and stress. At this point there are a few options and considerations. As for why your hair is thinning at a young age, this may be simply genetics - that is to say that some of us are predisposed to hair loss at young ages based on our genes and inheritance from our parents. Have you discussed this with your doctor? Rarely an excess of testosterone can lead to early hair loss. Also, thyroid dysfunction may be a contributing factor. Please discuss this with your doctor.
As for options, there are a few. First, I would consider minoxidil (brand name rogaine) in a foam or liquid preparation applied twice daily to the scalp can slow the rate of hair loss and possibly support some hair growth. There is medication as well (Propecia) which has been shown to slow the rate of hair loss and help men maintain the hair that they have. Finally, there are surgical options which I would always consider as a last resort. The bottom line is to have an open discussion with your doctor and consider what options you might have as far as testing and treatment are concerned. Take care.

Hello doctor, I am a 24-year-old female and got my hair done yesterday. My hairdresser has always noticed me with thick hair but mentioned yesterday that it has gotten quite thinner. I have also noticed a lot of it falling out. my hair dresser said it has a lot to do with me eating less and drinking a lot. I will stop drinking but may I ask what type of food I need to eat more of and/or if I should eat less of anything?

Dermatologist Dr. Tanumay Raychaudhury's  Response
This has been well discussed. There are treatment options available, but see a doctor soon. You need to weigh your options and understand what can be at best expected. I would like to warn you however, that most medical treatments are to temporarily halt the process of hair loss if you have androgenetic alopecia.
