    Losing your luscious locks can be stressful. Individuals who pride themselves on their appearance and long, lustrous hair may feel conscious about hair loss.

    There are many different hair loss patterns, including hair thinning, sudden hair loosening, or circular bald batches. While some amount of hair loss and hair thinning, around 50-100 hair strands, is normal for every person, if it’s happening in excess, it’s a thing of concern.

    Hair loss can be due to several reasons, such as:

    • Severe stress
    • Ageing
    • Rapid, unintentional weight loss
    • Radiation or chemotherapy
    • The side effect of medicines for heart problems, birth control, gout and depression
    • Hair trauma due to tight hairstyles
    • Skin conditions such as folliculitis or psoriasis
    • Medical conditions like major infections or thyroid troubles
    • Poor nutrition and low protein or iron levels
    • Baldness due to hormonal or genetic factors


    If you are worried about your voluminous and consistent hair fall, talk to your physician about it. They are likely to run a hair fall assessment test to determine the cause of the hair loss.

    Apollo 24/7 has an extensive and advanced hair fall screening test, which comprises 31 tests:

    • Calcium Serum: If you desire healthy and strong hair, you must maintain good calcium levels in your body. This mineral boosts enzyme and hormone secretion (biotic enzymes and androgen hormones), which are responsible for good hair growth. Calcium is also necessary for your body to absorb iron, which is essential for thick hair. This test will measure your calcium levels and ascertain whether you have an imbalance. If you have calcium deficiency, it can lead to coarse hair. 
    • Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) serum: This test measures your thyroid levels. If there is a severe imbalance in T4 and TSH numbers, it can cause hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. This, inadvertently, paves the way for troubles like hair loss. You will note uniformly sparse hair growth.
    • Vitamin B12: This vitamin is vital for hair growth and maintains a necessary RBC level. If these oxygen-carrying cells are low, it can leave your scalp undernourished. Eventually, your locks will become brittle and weak, causing worrisome hair fall. So, this test measures the amount of vitamin B12 in your bloodstream.
    • Vitamin D – 25 hydroxy (D2+D3): Several studies have concluded that vitamin D deficiency is associated with hair loss. If your body has low Vitamin D, it cannot stimulate both old and new hair follicles, causing a growth stunt. The test determines the number of Vitamin D in your body. 
    • Iron studies: Hair loss can have many reasons, one of which could be a lack of enough iron, leading to bald patches on your scalp. The test considers the iron levels present in your blood to rule out iron deficiency as the cause of hair fall. 
    • Complete blood count (CBC): This test checks for haemoglobin, PCV, MCV, MCH, MHCH, RBC count, RDW, differential leucocytic count, total leucocyte count and absolute leucocyte count. If any of these components are found in imbalance, it can be the leading cause of hair fall and baldness.
