Hair Loss Caused By Autoimmune Disease

One of the most common causes of hair loss, especially hair loss at an early age, is an autoimmune disease. The autoimmune disease causes the body’s immune system to mistakenly attack healthy cells and systems. As the body strives to preserve energy, hair growth is impacted and hair loss is a very common side effect. Some autoimmune diseases that are linked with excessive hair loss include alopecia areata, Lupus, Hashimoto’s Disease, Grave’s Disease, psoriasis, and IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) and Crohn’s. It is very important to seek treatment for these autoimmune diseases. Many times, treating the disease will correct hair loss. If hair loss persists after treatment for autoimmune diseases, the HairNation team can customize treatment to promote healthy hair growth.

Autoimmune Hair Loss Solutions

Hair loss caused by autoimmune issues can be challenging, but there are various treatments available to address and manage the condition. Here are solutions to help mitigate hair loss:

  • Medications: Immunosuppressive drugs can help manage autoimmune responses and minimize hair loss.
  • Corticosteroids: Topical or injected corticosteroids can reduce inflammation and halt the immune system's attack on hair follicles.
  • Advanced Injections: Injections leverage the body's natural healing properties to stimulate hair follicles and promote growth.
  • Immunotherapy: This approach involves modifying the immune system's response to prevent it from attacking hair follicles.
  • Topical Immunomodulators: Prescription creams containing immunomodulators can help regulate the immune response in the affected areas.
  • JAK Inhibitors: Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors are oral medications that can modulate the immune system and potentially promote hair regrowth.
  • Hormone Therapy: Balancing hormones, especially in conditions like Hashimoto's Disease, may help manage hair loss.
  • Dietary Changes: A nutrient-rich diet, potentially including supplements, can support overall health and may positively impact hair growth.
  • Stress Management: Stress can exacerbate autoimmune conditions. Techniques such as meditation, yoga, and mindfulness can be beneficial.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Adopting a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and sufficient sleep, can contribute to overall well-being and potentially minimize autoimmune responses affecting hair.

It's crucial to consult with a healthcare professional, such as Dr. Dhaliwal, to determine the most appropriate combination of treatments based on the specific autoimmune condition and individual health factors
