New Study on Vitamin D Link to Alopecia Areata

The potential link between low levels of vitamin D and Alopecia Areata has been reinforced by an expert at the Maui Derm 2015 meeting. A recent study conducted in Turkey also found that 91% of Alopecia Areata patients had low levels of vitamin D.

Alopecia Areata is a hair loss condition characterised by sudden or gradual patchy hair loss. The condition is caused by hair follicles prematurely and rapidly entering the telogen, or resting, phase of the growth cycle. Alopecia is categorised as an auto-immune disease, and can be triggered by shock or extreme stress, exposure to toxins, or viral or bacterial infection, although the precise cause remains unknown.
