19 male… I recently went to a hair loss specialist to get examined for what I consider DUPA-like symptoms. She looked at me and assumed that my diffuse hair loss of miniaturized hairs all over my head was simply caused by my severe anxiety and poor diet. While it is true that I have had horrible anxiety for a very long time and eat like a pigeon, it seems farfetched to me that anxiety and diet could lead to miniaturized hairs falling out everywhere, even in the permanent zone. Can I trust her, or should I seek out another specialist?
You always have the option of getting a second opinion if you don’t trust your doctor’s opinion. I have not seen a case of diffuse unpatterened alopecia (DUPA) caused by anxiety and diet.
