Hi, for the last ten months I’ve been having diffuse hair loss all over my scalp. Both top and sides of my head. My hair line has not receded. Within these ten months, I would say that I’ve lost about 60% or more of my total hair. All of the hairs have the small white bulb at the end. I’ve gone to a dermatologist and he suggested that it might be TE or MPB. I then went to an endocrinologist and had some blood work done. I came out having slight hyperthyroidism and I show many of the symptoms.
It seems that my hair loss has continued the same. I have slight hair regrowth but it tends to fall and my hairs still have the white bulb at the end. this problem began in june ’09 and I had been under a great stress two months prior. I am now 19. I have been on methimazole for about a month now and I am really anxious to try propecia. Do you believe this to be TE or MPB? Thank You.
I really don’t know what you’re seeing, so I can not recommend anything without checking out the hair loss for myself. I need to make a diagnosis and to see the distribution of your hair loss.
Since you’re not too far from my Los Angeles office, I’d like to suggest coming in for a free consultation. You can call my office at 310-553-9113 (or 800-NEW-HAIR) to set up the appointment.
