Question: I'm a 53 yr.old woman.
My hair is beginning to thin in the front. I heard it was some kind
of hormone deficiency. I'd like to know what kind of hormone, and
if there is some kind of supplement I could take to help with this
problem. Thank you for any help you can give me! Darleen
Answer: Dear Darleen,
When hair loss is related to hormones,
it is usually due to an imbalance in the levels of androgens and estrogens.
After menopause, the ovaries may produce more androgens (male hormones)
than estrogen (female hormones) and this can result in hair loss.
Herbal supplements such as Nettle
Leaf Extract can help nourish hair and encourage hair growth.
