Suggest treatment for hair fall

My hair roots and follicles are weak and I suffer from hair fall. I eat healthy and I take my daily dose of vitamins, iron, calcium and minerals. However, my hair is still thinning. I am undergoing homepathy treatment for poly-cystic ovaries and I also take homepathic medicines for my skin and hair. Though its helped me, my hair continues to fall out and I constantly worry about my thinning hair. I also oil my hair once a week and keep it on for about 2-3 days. Is there any medicine that would boost my hair growth and arrest hair fall?

Hi.
I've gone through your query and I can understand your anxiety.

Thinning of hair & hair fall might be due to many conditions. It is important to rule out the underlying pathology before taking medications. Several disorders like thyroid disorders, anemia & nutrition & protein deficiency, malabsorption can result in hair fall . Also due to the effect of certain medication hair might get thin & start falling.

History says you have PCOS where facial & body hair grow thicker but there will be hair thinning and loss, which is known as female pattern hair loss.

I advice you to,
- Get treated for PCOD
- Eat healthy fat diet, nuts and avocados.
- Take enough protein, vitamins, iron & fish oil supplements
- Do thyroid function test & hemoglobin levels every 6months once

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

Regards,
Dr. Yogapriya V, General and family physician.
