Hello. Thank you for writing.

Androgenetic hair loss is seen in both men and women but is more dramatic in men. Thyroid disease, anemia, stress, protein deficiency, chemotherapy, and low vitamin levels (such as D, B, and Iron) may cause hair loss. Alopecia areata is a form of hair loss produced by the autoimmune destruction of hair follicles in localized areas of skin.
