Treating hair loss induced by hormonal imbalance


Hormones are supposed as the chemical messengers of the body. Produced in the endocrine, these essentials chemicals circulate in your body regulating the performance of each tissue and organ. Hormones are responsible for controlling many major functioning of the body including metabolism and reproduction. In the case you are suffering from hormonal imbalance, you either have more than or less than the required amount of hormones in your body, both of the conditions can induce serious irregularities in the body.

Hormone imbalance can also play a significant role in triggering hair loss conditions in men and women. There are many different effects hormones create on hair when the hormones are not produced in the right quantity. Following are the different types of hormones that can induce hair loss.


Estrogen is an essential hormone in women that is responsible for maintaining the different functioning of the body including healthy sex life, mood changes, and energy boosting. When these important hormones are imbalanced due to birth control pills or menopause, they can induce different disorders including hair loss and hair thinning. The levels of estrogen also get disturbed during pregnancy as well and cause hair thinning.


Insulin is to regulate the sugar levels in the body. While insulin disorders are mostly related to inducing diabetes, it can also create an impact on hair growth, causing hair loss and hair thinning. Recent studies show that women who are suffering from insulin disorders are more prone to hair loss conditions such as Androgenic Alopecia and Alopecia Areata.


The thyroid gland is responsible for the production of hormones that are to regulate the metabolism rate, heart rate, and body’s temperature.

The underproduction of thyroid hormones is called as hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid gland. In such a condition, your thyroid gland starts producing less than required hormones for the regular functioning.

The overproduction of the thyroidal hormones is called as hyperthyroidism or an overactive thyroid gland. In such a condition, the thyroid gland starts producing more than the required amount of hormones for the regular functioning of the body.

Both cases of thyroid disorders cause diffuse pattern hair loss that covers the entire scalp rather than some specific areas. The regrowth is possible only in the initial stages by undergoing the traditional hair loss treatments.
