Your heart and you…hair?

Androgentic alopecia, or male/female pattern hair loss, is the most common cause of hair loss. Its cause is usually genetic, but it can also occur as a result of hormonal problems. Although many regard the problem as merely cosmetic, onset of this type of hair loss before age 36 years old is associated with an increased risk of abnormal blood lipid values associated with cardiovascular disease. Use your minoxidil (i.e. Rogaine) and get your cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and HDL checked. When you get to know skin, you learn that skin is deep.
