Hair fall at the age of 19.
Doctor Answers 3
While nutrition plays a role in healthy hair growth, other conditions should be considered in a young person with hair loss including autoimmune conditions. If your hair growth does not improve with proper nutrition and sleep restoration, I would recommend that you see your primary doctor before seeing a specialist. Best of luck.

Thanks for the question. Breakfast is an important meal, as it fuels the rest of the day. Diet is important in growing healthy hair. Inadequate nutrition can lead to hair loss. Both protein and caloric restriction can cause it. I would recommend an evaluation with a hair loss expert. It should include:An accurate diagnosis is pivotal in successful treatment and results. When did the hair loss start? gradual or sudden? shedding or slow progressive hair loss? patchy or focal? Pattern or diffuse? any other symptoms? itching? burning? family history of similar hair loss? scaling? redness? dietary? medical history? meds? history of surgery? are you male or female?
