At NEXT|HEALTH we understand that looking the way you feel, when feeling great, is pretty amazing. Having a full head of hair plays a huge role in that. So, let's get you there.
The NEXT|HEALTH Hair Loss test measures biomarkers that can be evaluated to understanding any underlying issues causing hair loss to occur. Once your results are received, our nurse practitioner can develop a customized hair loss reversal program for you.
HAIR LOSS PANEL INCLUDES
CBC (COMPLETE BLOOD COUNT)
CBC levels provide insight into overall health and can detect a wide range of disorders or infection, including leukemia, anemia, and blood clotting.
DHT is a sex hormone that is linked to body hair development and loss. High levels can shorten the life cycle of a hair and lengthen the time it takes to grow a new one, or even inhibit growth at all, leading to thinning hair or baldness.
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE (TSH)
Imbalanced TSH levels can affect hair growth, with too high or too low levels causing diffuse hair loss, resulting in thin and brittle hair.
Known as the “sunshine vitamin,” vitamin D is produced by the body when skin is exposed to sunlight. It also occurs naturally in a few foods, including some types of fish, fish liver oils, egg yolks, and is added to fortified dairy and grain products. If you shun the sun, suffer from milk allergies, or follow a vegan diet, you may be at risk for vitamin D deficiency.
Ferritin is a type of protein that stores iron for your body to use when it needs to. Low levels of ferritin may cause hair loss, but this is a frequently overlooked contributing factor. We check to see if your ferritin levels could be causing your hair loss.
