1. Alopecia Areata
Alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks hair follicles (structures that contain the roots of the hair), is one of the main reasons behind hair loss.

2. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Hair thinning as well as rapid hair loss are common signs of PCOS, which causes a hormonal imbalance in the body. About one in every 10 to 15 women in the United States suffer from this health problem.

3. Iron-Deficiency Anemia
Those who suffer from iron-deficiency anemia often complain of thinning and brittle hair. In fact, hair loss is one of the most prominent and earliest symptoms of iron deficiency in the body.

4. Hypothyroidism (Underactive Thyroid)
Hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid, is another cause of hair loss.

5. Lupus
Lupus, a type of autoimmune disease, can also result in hair loss. In this disease, your own immune system attacks healthy tissues and leads to inflammation.

6. Telogen Effluvium
Telogen effluvium is another very common cause of hair loss. It is characterized by an abrupt onset of diffuse hair loss for a couple of months after a triggering event.

I find it interesting that 2 of the disorders are autoimmune disorders, and I have psoriasis, which as you probably know, is also an autoimmune disorder. I wonder if there is any connection there! Having recently been diagnosed T2 Diabetic, I have been researching my medical history and putting some things together, and I believe I either had (or still have and it's just not active if that's possible???) PCOS. I am also Iron deficient. Along with a genetic predisposition to very thin hair, I'm not facing good odds!
