Is Your Diet the Reason for That Unexplained Hair Loss?

Hair loss is very common and unfortunately affects about 50% of both men and women by the age of 50. There are many reasons for hair loss, such a genetics or alopecia, but your diet may actually be to blame. Nutritional and vitamin deficiencies can cause your hair to become unhealthy and fall out. So if you’re suffering from unexplained hair loss, have your doctor determine if you are deficient in certain vitamins and minerals.

Come visit Dr. McKenna’s Orthopedics and Biologics in either of our offices in Trophy Club or Dallas, Texas, and we’ll get to the bottom of what’s causing your hair loss. Dr. Wade McKenna is always thorough, and wants our patients to experience full wellness, including the health of your scalp. 

If your diet is to blame, we’ll correct it and advise you on which supplements you need to be taking on a regular basis. And we’ll explain how our hair rejuvenation treatments can help you get that thick, healthy hair back.

Diet and Hair Loss

Hair follicles become damaged due to age, medication you may be taking, hormonal changes, disease, stress, or environmental issues, like toxins, sun and UV damage. We have no control over things like age and heredity, but we do over what we eat. Your diet has many consequences on your health, especially when it comes to hair loss. 

Essential fatty acids and omega-3s are beneficial for your hair, skin and nails, so eating fatty fish like salmon and tuna, taking flaxseed oil, and enjoying nuts like almonds and walnuts is highly beneficial. Folic acid, B6 and B12 vitamins are also vital to the health of your hair. So enjoy citrus, tomatoes, bananas, potatoes, and spinach. And you must also make sure you’re eating enough lean proteins. 

Hair Loss Solutions

A change from bad eating habits to good ones helps you on many levels, and can keep your scalp and follicles healthy. This should be done regardless and is an important first step. But if you truly want to keep the hair you have and prevent further loss, the Remane treatment deals with the root cause of your hair loss head-on. In fact, it’ll reverse it and rejuvenate your thinning hair.  

While it’s similar to PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatments and is done through an injectable tissue graft, it’s more concentrated and powerful. Each 45-minute treatment restores the blood flow to your follicles, helps grow new blood vessels, and actively lasts for 20 weeks at a time. The procedure is safe, minimally invasive, and causes no downtime.
