Diffuse Thinning also known as Chronic Telogen Effluvium
Whereas Telogen Effluvium is a temporary hair loss condition which tends to last no more than six months, Chronic Telogen Effluvium – also known as Diffuse Thinning or Diffuse Hair Loss – refers to a more protracted version of this condition which lasts for six months or more.
As with the temporary condition, the main signs of Chronic Telogen Effluvium are thinning hair although unlike thinning caused by Female Pattern Hair Loss, this can be across the whole scalp rather than just restricted to the top of the head. Common causes of Diffuse Thinning include:
- Prolonged stress
- Illnesses such as anaemia or thyroid disorders
- Medication side effects
- A lack of certain nutrients in the diet
