We recognize that hair loss is not only a complex medical condition, but one that affects every aspect of the hair loss sufferer’s life. Hair loss affects as many as 50 million people in the United States, men and women alike. If you’re experiencing hair loss and you and your doctor are looking for medication treatment options then contact us.
For male patients – Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) or common male pattern baldness (MPB) or hair loss due to hormonal causes, makes up 95% of male hair loss cases. By the age of thirty-five, two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss, and by the age of fifty approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair. Approximately twenty five percent of men who suffer with male pattern baldness begin the painful process before they reach the age of twenty-one.
Many women also experience female pattern hair loss. When androgenetic alopecia affects women it is called female pattern alopecia or female pattern baldness. Hair loss in women is different than that of men, with hair thinning tending to be more diffuse.
Although for both men and women androgenic alopecia is the most common form of hair loss, doctors also see many people with other forms of alopecia. Many medical conditions also have alopecia as a primary symptom.
