Hair loss can have a big impact on a woman. Whether it alopecia totalis or, more commonly, thinning hair, hair loss can happen in a number of ways for a number of reasons. Nadine Dorries, controversial Tory MP, who appeared on ITV’s “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here”, recently opened up about how she cries everyday over her hair loss struggles.
The good news is that there is help available at The Private Clinic for women suffering from hair loss, whether it’s thinning or if you’re feeling it’s a lost cause.
When it comes to hair loss, it takes extensive medical knowledge and experience to ensure that the hair loss is correctly diagnosed and not symptomatic of a medical condition – something that can be easily missed by a non-medic. Female hair loss is often quite complicated and you should work with medically-qualified practitioners in the field. If you’re unsure, ask for your doctor’s credentials. You deserve the best care and we’re proud to be able to offer our world-class experience. Find out what one of Hair Loss Specialists had to say about the recent news.
Dr. Raghu Reddy on Female Hair Loss & Nadine Dorries
Hair has long been important for women and plays a significant cultural role in our lives and Nadine Dorries opening up about her struggles with hair loss probably rings true with many of our female patients. Dr. Raghu Reddy of The Private Clinic of Harley Street shared his thoughts on the issue of female hair loss in response to the recent news about the much talked about MP, Nadine Dorries, opening up about how she cries everyday over her hair loss:
“Hair loss can be devastating in women. In most circumstances it is due to a treatable medical condition like an under active or over active thyroid, anaemia or an auto-immune condition.
It can also be caused by prolonged stress as well. A condition termed telogen effluvium.
In some women an element of male pattern hair loss is observed.
The good news is that there are some evidence backed treatments that can help contain further loss & in some instances reverse the condition if treated appropriately.”
