Hair loss in women is more common than most people realize.

But women should seek help. Thinning hair can signal a more serious health problem...such as iron deficiency, thyroid abnormalities, hormonal imbalances, and auto-immune diseases like lupus.
It can also be caused by yo-yo diets, high doses of vitamin a, medications including some for blood pressure, and emotional stress.
But in the majority of cases...up to 80 percent...hair loss in women is genetic.
Called androgenetic alopecia or common baldness it can be passed from either parent and can begin as late as menopause or as early as puberty.
(/////SOT/////)
SOT
IN Q=Common baldness

((DR. DIANA BIHOVA: COMMON BALDNESS IS DIFFERENT IN MALES AND FEMALES. IN WOMEN THE FRONTAL HAIRLINE IS PRESERVED SO THE HAIR LOSS IS JUST DIFFUSE. INTERESTING WITH ANDROGENETIC ALOPECIA OR COMMON BALDNESS THE HORMONE LEVELS ARE USUALLY NORMAL. ))
RUNS=:00
OUT Q=usually normal.


When women lose hair in patches like this it is known as alopecia areta...but, unlike common baldness this often resolves itself on it's own. When it comes to treatment, Dr. Bihova says there are options including hair transplants, non-surgical hair extensions, prostheses or wigs and the medication rogaine which is set to go over the counter next month...but before women reach into their pocketbook to treat themselves...a word of caution.
(/////SOT/////)
SOT

stand-up
Each day a woman loses between 50 to 125 hairs. This is normal. And, at different times in a woman's life some increased hair loss is normal such as around puberty, after the birth of a child, or after menopause.
But if hair loss persists for longer than three months she should probably see a doctor. end standup
As did Susannah and Dorothy. Susannah's hair eventually grew back. Dorothy's did not...so she's opted for a short cut which makes it less noticeable...another option for those women struggling with the often embarrassing problem of hair loss.
