Early baldness may indicate health problems – Digikar


Scientists say that male pattern baldness at an early age can be a sign of serious health problems.

Experts believe that men who have already begun to lose hair before reaching the age of 50 are almost 2 times more likely to get a heart attack than their peers who do not suffer from alopecia.

There is also an increased risk of developing other diseases of the cardiovascular system among early balding males. In such men, the risk increases by 22%.

These results of the study were shared by Japanese scientists from the University of Tokyo, who studied the data on the health status and the degree of hair loss of more than 40 thousand men.

But scientists have not yet fully understood the relationship between baldness and cardiovascular disease. Experts believe that baldness may indicate an underlying condition that causes heart problems, such as chronic inflammation, increased testosterone sensitivity, or insulin resistance.
