Hairloss is a medical condition

When confronted with hair loss, you are faced with two options. You could accept the situation and turn to Google to learn how to style thinning hair. Or, you could take the smarter toot and seek a consultation to determine the cause of the issue. More Often than not, hair loss is more than just a cosmetic dilemma; it is foremost a medical problem with causative under-pinnings. What is little known and often overlooked is that hair loss could, in fact, be a sign - of a latent illness. While it is customary to shed about 50-100 strands of hair a day, it could be a worrying symptom when hair appears to fall in 'clumps.' There can be various triggers for hair-loss. A bout of flu or fever, illnesses like jaundice, typhoid and malaria can cause hair loss. Other medical triggers, for hair loss, include thyroid disorders, skin conditions of the scalp such as psoriasis and dermatitis (eczema), hereditary causes or hormonal imbalances, ovarian cysts, and anaemia among other health concerns. Diabetes can also cause hair loss, much before it is clinically diagnosed. That's not all, though. Hair fall can also be a result of an emotional upheaval'- say, if one is upset or stressed about losing one's job.
