We at AP Trichology believe there is NOT just one form of female pattern thinning; androgenic in appearance* – but TWO forms:

  1. ‘Acquired’ pattern thinning due metabolic-hormonal compensatory mechanisms – the most common form of female pattern thinning in our experience. Our empirical studies suggest acquired pattern thinning occurs in increasing numbers of women due to a disordering of sex hormones + their carrier proteins from hyperinsulinaemia (commonly known as Insulin Resistance).
  2. Genetically inherited female androgenic alopecia, where the condition is seen after puberty in the majority of women within an extended family (ie: mothers, daughters, maternal grandmothers, sisters, female cousins).

We also investigate and treat all forms of alopecia; areata or cicatricial (aka ‘scarring’ alopecia). Disturbances in gut function and its flow-on effects for the body is a persistent, overwhelming trigger for alopecia areata in young children & many adults.

*BOTH forms will exhibit as follicle miniaturization
