To diagnose female pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia in women), we must first rule out other causes of alopecia:
- Medical problems:
Inadequate intake of protein and iron. Iron deficiency, anemia, is one of the main causes of alopecia in women and is often not recognized.
- Thyroid disease:
both hypo-and hyperthyroidism can cause alopecia.
- Alopecizzanti drugs: for example, cancer drugs, anticoagulants, antispasmodics, antithyroid drugs, beta blockers, birth control pills, tricyclic antidepressants.
The Ludwig scale of female pattern baldness Basing their studies on the observation of the 468 cases, Ludwig developed the following scheme:
Type I. Noticeable thinning of hair on the crown, limited to a line 1-3 inches behind the front line
Type II. Pronounced depletion of hair on the crown
Type III. Thinning very advanced over the area affected in type I and II
The following information is useful to determine if the cause of hair loss is androgenetic alopecia
At what age did you begin to notice the thinning? How long are these symptoms? Androgenetic alopecia usually occurs in adolescence, in 20 or 30 years.
Have you started to notice a gradual thinning or the first impression was of a fall copious? In androgenetic alopecia typically do not normally see an increase of the fall daily.
However, in some women, the thinning crown is masked by an early episode of marked increase in the fall as a result of childbirth, a high fever or other diseases. This type of hair loss (telogen effluvium) runs its course over a period of several months and is followed by a total regrowth within a year. However, a woman with a hereditary predisposition to alopecia might not get a total regrowth after the episode of effluvium.
In other cases of alopecia you have family? It 'easy to misunderstand this question. These cases include parents, brothers and sisters, grandparents, aunts and uncles on both sides of the family.
Have you cut your hair shorter and shorter?
Patients often cut their hair shorter to compensate for the lack of greater volume at the tips. If you collect the hair in a ponytail, you probably noticed that its diameter has been reduced over time.
Do you have a regular cycle? How many days does it last? And 'rich? Have you been pregnant? If so, when was the last? Have you had problems with infertility? You galactorrhea? (A white discharge from the nipple, persistent and that seems to milk) or secretion of milk from the breast-feeding between the ranges of the child or after weaning?

The female hair loss mystery2003-10-23 09:20:27 by wish-i-could-solve-it
Unfortunately, hair loss seems to be fairly common among women. For those women out there who have hair loss, how have you been dealing with it? I'm 31, and started losing my hair at 25. It's half as thick as it once was. It's gone from being full of body and styled with gels, etc., to being flat and lifeless. My hair was somewhat thick before I started losing it, and it's not super obvious (that it's thinned) now, but it is far from being as thick as it once was. The thing is, I'm well aware that my hair has thinned, and I'm very self-conscious about it. When I look in the mirror and hold up some strands of hair, I can see how thinned out it really is
