We always say to each patients who come our clinic regarding hair problems or want to have hair transplant; let us first see the results of hair check-up..
What is hair check-up?
We have got different devices that we can see patients hair root bigger and closer. But what is going on in your body? why you lose your hair?.. to find out the answers of this questions we need some blood tests. Hair check-up is a series of blood tests that we can learn more about the reason of hair loss.
We know that in general the main reason of hair loss is genetic. But why this genetic process come earlier?
– Doc. I have hair loss problem.
– Ok. Does your father, uncle or grandfather have such a problem?
– Yes they have.
– Then you have genetic history.
– My father started to lose his hair after 50 years but I started to have hair loss problem at 30s. So what is the reason of losing hair at early age?
Some women patients who have hair loss problem want hair transplant, ok .. but first we should search that is there any other problems that can cause hair loss. Because hair loss is just a sign that we see. And we all know that hair transplant is real solution. But first we have to see what is going on in blood. Because our blood is supplying our body and also our hair. So with the blood test we are looking what is the level of magnesium, zinc, iron, biotine, vitamin D.. etc. And ofcourse the hormonal tests are so much important for the patients who have got hair problems.
Sometimes men or women have got thyroid problems so we should check their thyroid stimulant hormone level. For the women other hormone such us FSH, LH levels are should checked. At the end again our desicion is not change we plan hair transplant operation. But if the patient has got some severe vitamin & mineral deficiency or has got hormonal imbalance we should manage this problems for a successful result.
That is why we always highlight that before any hair treatments first let see your blood test results and after hair transplant with oral treatment balance all this vitamin, mineral and hormones. With this way we would have better results.
