The condition of our hair and nails are one of the first cues that reflect the physical and mental health. Systemic diseases affect the hair health, texture, colour, shape and growth. Hair loss is a condition that causes serious emotional psychosocial defects especially in women. Increased feelings of depression and loss of self-esteem are the two most common side effects of hair fall. Most patient list hair loss as the top side effect that they want to treat of any medical treatment. However hair loss treatment often presents a difficult problem because of the diverse number of reasons that can lead to this problem. Hair loss because of systemic diseases can be easily treated once the cause is diagnosed.
Telogen effluvium is the most common side effect of systemic diseases. This type of hair fall is caused because of a gradual or sudden onset of non-scarring alopecia because of systemic diseases. This type of hair loss happens because of a sudden change in body routine a few days to three months prior. Telogen effluvium happens because the hair follicle enter in to the telogen (normal hair fall phase ) sooner than normal. This can happen because of many reasons such as
Certain prescription drugs can attribute to hair loss. Discuss with the hair specialist if you have been taking any medication that might have triggered the hair loss.
Radiation therapy and chemotherapy can cause hair loss in cancer patients.
Nutrition is the key to maintaining healthy hair. Protein forms hair keratin that is the primary constituent of hair and inadequate protein in diet reduces hair diameter and loss in colour and texture of hair. Similarly deficiency of essential fatty acids leads to premature greying, excess vitamin A leads to accelerated hair loss. Excessive intake of vitamin supplements can also lead to hair loss.
Endocrine imbalances can lead to severe hair loss in male and female. Male pattern hair loss and female pattern hair loss is one of the main results of endocrine disorders (androgen related).
Infections can lead to cicatricial alopecia , which means a diffusing and patchy hair loss pattern on the scalp and other parts of body. Infections and stress can also lead to autoimmune damage, which leads to hair loss.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal condition that mostly affects women who are in their childbearing age. PCOS can affect a women’s ability to have children, disturb the menstrual cycle, cause severe acne and even weight gain. Another sever side effect of PCOS is hair loss. Pattern baldness is often seen in women suffering from PCOS. Women start to lose hair from the part in a zigzag fashion. Hormonal changes caused because of PCOS also cause reduced estrogen levels. Apart from this thyroid, anaemia and other illness can also cause pattern hair fall in women.
In women suffering from PCOS the body produces excess amount of androgen hormone, which in turn causes Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) to become active that causes the hair follicle to shrink and miniaturize, and as a result the hair grows thinner and eventually stops growing all together. With correct and timely hair fall treatment in India the hair loss because of polycystic ovary syndrome can be reversed.
There is no standalone hair fall treatment for systemic diseases. The treatment modality is dependent on the cause of hair fall and the extent of hair fall. Basic blood tests, physical scalp examinations, scalp biopsy and hair analysis can help determine the cause of hair fall successfully and devise a cost effective hair fall treatment and hair regrowth treatment method. The common treatment options available at The Esthetic Clinics include
QR678 does not have any side effects and is administered locally on the scalp with the help of mesotherapy technique. It is not absorbed by the blood stream instead it directly enriches the hair follicles with the necessary nutrients and proteins. QR678 injections can also improve the health of the existing hair and also aid in hair development after the hair transplant surgery.
QR678 is non-surgical, non-invasive and more affordable than a hair transplant surgery. QR678 works well as a combination therapy alongside OCP, Minoxidil and finasteride to restrict female pattern alopecia and baldness. QR678 treatment for treating hair fall because of systemic disease is done as an outpatient procedure with around 8 – 10 sessions done over a period of few months.
