Paient Enquiry:

A 51-year-old woman complaining of hair thinning, who stated that although the hair was not falling out when she washed it, over the years her hair had become considerably thinner and had led her to question her hair colouring choices.

Consultation Examination:

I observed that the patient’s hair was generally growing well and the scalp appeared clear and healthy. The patient confirmed that at the back of her head, the density of her hair was exactly as it had always been, but that some grey hairs were now starting to come through. The upper region of her head from the crown forward showed too much scalp as the hairs in this area were finer.

Diagnosis:

Androgen Dependant Alopecia, female pattern thinning

Further Tests:

A visit to the GP to carry out specific blood tests, as outlined in my request letter

Home Treatment:

Daily application of the anti-androgen solution

    I visited Shuna in the autumn of 2018 as my hair was falling out and beginning to look thin. When looking back I realised that what I thought was hair breaking off when my hairdresser told me it was falling out. Shuna assessed my hair and told me I had hormone related loss, prescribed daily scalp drops and arranged for blood tests. I took a course of zinc and today my hair is growing back and I have realised I need to keep the layers short to reduce the hair loss. I am very happy with the treatment given and also Shuna answers any questions Very quickly
