Medical Knowledge and the Evaluation of Hair Loss
Although all of us lose up to 200 hairs a day through natural hair loss, some individuals have an underlying medical issue that can trigger an even greater amount of hair decline. The underlying causes of increased hair loss can be extensive, but may include a systemic problem such as thyroid issues, iron deficiency, autoimmune disorders, medications, or a genetic predisposition. Hair loss can also be secondary to mechanical issues such as the way an individual treats and styles his or her hair. At his medical office in La Jolla, Dr. Darrell Gonzales has helped patients throughout the greater San Diego area identify the underlying cause of their hair loss, and can do the same for you. As with most medical problems, it is better to identify and treat your hair loss early before it is too late to stimulate new and healthy hair growth.
