View Full Version : Appetite loss and hair loss

I have been looking into body-wide changes or characteristics that seem to accompany hair loss.

These are often hard to pinpoint, because they may have been "normality" for us our whole life. In any case, please put in the poll whichever choices you believe apply to you.
Having this "data" could help us see comorbidity in hair loss, something which seems to have been done only marginally in actual research.

Quite varied from person to person.

I'd say looking back, the start of grey coincided with when the loss began.

Graying hair corresponds to the death of certain stem cells in the hair follicle, but many people lose hair without experiencing graying, albeit male pattern baldness also involves the ceased function of stem cells in the hair follicle. It indeed sounds like there is some relationship between the two, as both graying and hair loss are typical in aging.
