Thyroid Disorder As Cause For Hair Loss

Hair loss is common problem and it can happen to anyone. There is more than one type of hair loss type. Thyroid alopecia areata is a type of alopecia that is caused by a thyroid disorder or disease. Hair may be lost in a localized area (monolocularis) or in several areas on the head (multilocularis). The thyroid gland may begin to produce excess hormones. Autoimmune diseases tend to produce antibodies which attack body tissues or themselves. Examples of such antibodies include antithyroid antibodies. Treating the thyroid disease does not mean hair loss is treated also, so you should consult with a doctor to find the right treatment.
The treatments differ and may have some side-effects that you should know about. The most common is irritation where medication has been applied, usually of mild intensity. Hair growth can be noticed in a relatively short period of time. An increase in the anagen phase period during hair growth will increase the amount of hair that is produced. There are many known cases where there has been total recovery of hair. A doctor can determine the severity of the disease in order to prescribe the right medication for treatment. There are some medications that should not be administered on children, since it is very important to be sure that the prescribed medication is safe for use and that it can be combined with medications used to treat the thyroid condition that the patient may have.

The thyroid gland is so important because it is responsible for releasing signals in the form of hormones that trigger the production of keratin by keratinocytes in hair follicles, as well as the melanocytes to start secreting melanin. This causes a type of baldness that is called alopecia areata or simply hair loss on any part of the body. The actual cause of this condition is not fully understood and it has also been linked to autoimmune disorders.

Vitamins are very important for treating hair loss, because supplying your body with plenty of vitamins will initiate hair growth. Vitamin A is an antioxidant which plays a role in the production of sebum on the scalp, so you should add groceries that contain plenty of it or take it as a supplement. Vitamin B2 is also very beneficial for treating this kind of condition. It is stored in little quantities in the body so you need to take additional supplements. The vitamin is necessary in the use of oxygen and metabolism of fatty acids, amino acids and carbohydrates which all play important roles in hair growth, so hair loss may be caused by vitamin deficiency. Vitamin B6 is involved in the formation of melanin and is also involved in the reduction of stress in the nervous system.

Some treatments include drugs such as finasteride, avodart, and minoxidil. The use helps target the hair follicle, improve oxygen supply to the hair follicle, and inhibit enzymes that promote the formation of compounds that cause the loss of hair. If the extent of hair loss is severe, hair transplant surgery may also be considered. All these methods of hair replacement will only prove effective if the body is supplied with proper nourishment.

Natural products are known as herbal treatments for hair loss and one of the major advantages of these products is the zero risk for side effects. When compared to chemically formulated products, these products are safe to use.
