What Are the Symptoms of Alopecia Areata?
What are the symptoms of alopecia areata? If you’re a man, the first thing you’ll probably notice is that your hair has started to thin. The next step up on the symptom list would be hair loss, which can be seen as a bald patch on top of your head (if it’s noticeable), thinning at the sides or back and at the bottom of your scalp (if you have a female version of this condition). Symptoms of alopecia areata don’t usually develop until the age of 40, but men who have androgenetic alopecia are likely to experience symptoms before then. The reason why thinning and falling out of hair happen in cycles is because your body will go through different cycles of production and secretion of various hormones and nutrients, each time it’s going through the cycle.
Alopecia areata symptoms tend to manifest themselves more in younger people – for example after puberty – as a result of hormonal changes and imbalances. You can cover the effects with the use of Scalp Micropigmentation from His Hair Clinic.
Thyroid disease and alopecia areata are often linked together because both conditions can lead to the same symptom – hair loss areata. The thyroid gland is responsible for controlling and maintaining the production of certain hormones in the body, including follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). When the thyroid doesn’t produce enough of these hormones, the follicles on the scalp are sensitive to hormone levels and the hair loss area occurs. This can happen even if there is no hormonal imbalances, as the follicles still respond to FSH and TSH after they are produced naturally by the thyroid.
