Sometimes we avoid doctor appointments because we hope our ailments will pass, dread the experience, or simply don't have the time. But the truth is - with any condition - an early evaluation can be the key to recovery and hair loss is no exception. However, you might only look into medical hair restoration treatments after another person observes more scalp is visible, unfortunately, even at this point, your hair is well into miniaturization, so time is of the essence.
The topic of exercise causing increased hair loss is frequently brought up by my male patients, and even a quick google search will show that this is something the general public is discussing at great length. However, the exercise and exertion in and of itself are not the primary cause of a sudden increase in hair loss for men who actively work out.

It’s a staggering number, considering how little hair loss is talked about in women and the social stigma compared with men.

Prediction of hair loss is a prevalent topic given how many people experience alopecia in some form. When a male comes in for a hair loss consultation, I'm trying to look into the “crystal ball” to question where the patient sitting in front of me will end up or which stage in hair loss progression could be the endpoint, so I can recommend appropriate treatment options.
