Understanding the Causes and Treatment Of Alopecia Universalis

A medical condition that is known by the term alopecia involves excessive hair loss. Even though it is hard for the person, fortunately it is benign and it is not life threatening. There are many different patterns that the condition can manifest itself. Diffuse alopecia areata, alopecia areata monolocularis, alopecia areata multilocularis, alopecia areata barbae, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis are types of alopecia. Two last types of alopecia - alopecia totalis and universalis are two most serious types of alopecia, which includes excessive hair loss.
Luckily, this condition is not painful and you won't feel physically sick, even though it may be emotionally devastating. A great way to deal with the condition is to join a support group where you will meet people that struggle with the same problem as you and you will find lots of useful information that will help you to overcome it.

If you wish to find out more about alopecia universalis, you should know that there are lots of information available and many studies that were conducted. One of those studies refers to a study about a family which was affected with alopecia universalis. Three consecutive generations had it and the children with the disease were otherwise healthy, without any inflammatory processes that could inhibit hair growth. Research showed very few hair follicles, they were born without eyebrows or eyelashes, without any hair in general and never developed them.

The research consists of chromosome analysis for seven affected members from the family that had this condition in order to detect any genetic similarities that would show that the disease is genetically predetermined. They found a marker at the location 8p12, persistent in all seven family members, but they were not able to determine the exact gene that was at this location. The results of the research showed that there is mutation in the "hairless" genes of all the affected individuals in the family that was studied.

Even though most of us consider hair as an important part of our image - it is not all that it does. If you get affected with alopecia universalis, you will not have the protection for your eyes, because the condition causes you to lose eyelashes which can lead to many health problems. Nose hair protects you from dust and bacteria, but without it your lungs will be directly influenced and jeopardized. It is not the way that we think about our hair, but it has a protective purpose. Alopecia Universalis is unpredictable, so it may be short-termed or remain permanently.

You can fight hair loss with many different hair loss products, but you should be careful when choosing one for yourself. There are many advantages of using herbal hair loss shampoos and they have several advantages over commercial ones - they are easy to procure, inexpensive, and safe since they are natural and have no side effects. Consult with a doctor about the possible treatments and be persistent, because it is the only way to see results.
