I recently did research and wanted to know how i can go about finding out whether I am suffering from DPA or DUPA? I am devastated at prospect of potentially not being suitable for a HT due to potentially suffering from DUPA and wanted to know how i can go about finding more out, having density measured and who would be suitable person to see for consultation.
Generally a physician specializing in hair transplant surgery or a dermatologist can diagnose these things. DPA is diffuse patterned alopecia. DUPA is diffuse unpatterned alopecia. One has a pattern and other does not. Under clinical microscopy of the fringe area around the sides and back of your head, the DUPA patient will have significant miniaturization present, while the DPA patient will have a healthy donor area. I do not mean to make light of it, but a good physician should be able to diagnose these things.
