‘Help Me With Hair Loss from Anaemia’

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

Name: Magdalin

Question: I am having lots of hair fall which is diagnosed due to anemia. I started to work out eating vegetable and fruits and also applying Mintop 5% even though no recovery. Please help me outttt!!

Answer: Hi, Magdalin. The hair loss condition associated with anaemia is usually something called Telogen Effluvium.

This causes thinning hair all over the scalp and is generally a temporary condition, lasting no longer than twelve months. It often occurs initially as a warning sign before you become aware of your anaemia as the body diverts some of the nutrients needed for healthy hair growth into fighting any possible infection or illness.

AnaemiaOnce you have been diagnosed and your health issues are under control, this should allow your shedding to stabilise and regrowth to resume naturally, or with the help of Telogen Effluvium treatment if you wish to accelerate this process.

You mention you are using Mintop 5% – we do not stock this product at Belgravia but understand it to be a minoxidil brand available in India. As we do not use this particular brand of minoxidil treatment we are unable to comment on its efficacy, however, one thing worth noting is that medication for anemia – as well as for various other illnesses and conditions – can cause hair loss as a side effect.

In these instances, the Telogen Effluvium may continue, or progress to the more chronic form of Diffuse Hair Loss, until your body gets used to the new routine but, as before, your hair should start to grow back naturally once everything is back on an even keel, although this may take more than twelve months, depending on the severity of the shedding.

Eating a healthy diet is good for your hair as long as it is balanced with the right mix of vitamins and minerals. Too much of some can be as bad as too little of others so this is an area worth doing your homework in. Otherwise consider taking a specially-targeted hair health dietary supplement such as Hair Vitalics.

If you have a family history of genetic hair loss, as Telogen Effluvium can actually trigger or exacerbate Female Pattern Hair Loss in those with an existing predisposition, we would recommend you speak to a specialist to get a proper assessment and diagnosis. From there, they will be able to provide you with personalised advice and tailored treatment and hair growth booster recommendations.
