January 28, 2022

To gain quick results, people often go for crash diets. Restrictive diets, rapid weight loss or weight loss surgeries may lead to nutrient deficiencies. This can cause side-effects such as hair loss.Crash diets can be linked to other types of hair loss that includes chronic telogen effluvium, androgenic alopecia and female pattern baldness. Telogen effluvium is one of the most common reasons for hair loss and it is often linked to sudden weight loss and restrictive diets. Telogen effluvium usually occurs three months after the triggering events such as weight loss.

What is the link between crash dieting and hair loss?

Studies have linked hair loss with crash diets as there is calorie restriction, nutrition deficiencies and psychological tension. In a study published in the US National Library of Medicine, 2015, 180 women were observed for hair loss problem. The most common cause of hair loss in women was due to iron deficiency and stress. While in eight women crash dieting was the cause.

However, there are many different reasons for hair loss. To understand the underlying reason for hair loss, doctors can make the diagnosis based on the symptoms or appearance of the hair. To make sure of the diagnosis, a scalp biopsy, light microscopy or blood test can also be suggested.
