hair loss alopecia 
Up to date facts of Alopecia Areata , Alopecia Totalis, Universalis Hair loss
Approximately 50 per cent of people with mild Alopecia Areata recover within a year; however, most people will experience more than one episode during their lifetime.
Please take a moment to read if you suffer episodes which  usually are reflected from traumatic incidences such as having serious health issues, getting married or divorce, moving house,or dealing with bereavement cause the majority Alopecia areata  cases are far more deep genetic or immunologically rooted.
 Current scientific research is suggesting  that a typical 86 % common denominator bracket exists in patients, along with an estimated prevalence of alopecia areata cases being approximately 1 in 1000 people, or about one person in 50 will suffer from alopecia areata at some point in their life .
For most AA patients the onset is before age 30; it occurs in men and women  equally however interestingly enough in Asian countries alopecia cases are less in occurrence in this age group.
This disease condition can develop at any age, although most people develop Alopecia areata for the first time during adolescence with increasingly statistics being reported, that children as young as 3 years old, having experienced alopecia effects after having all their inoculation’s. (Immune: polio, diphtheria, measles, mumps, tetanus vaccinations).
Alopecia Areata is not life threatening and does not cause physical pain, however, the cosmetic effects of hair loss can be traumatic and can cause social multi levelled isolation and physiological  related depression.
In Alopecia Areata, the body’s immunological system seemly attacks the dermal hair cells at the base of the follicles causing atrophied state “wastage” of the hair shaft.
The aetiology, the direct cause is not clear and much medical opinion stays within  an “unknown origin” and can be less helpful with pragmatic and practical assistance especially if faced to breaking the news of when its time for a hair piece.
Other medical conditions can occur along with alopecia areata; these include
1.Vitiligo , a disorder that causes patchy whitening to skin tissue or regrowth of un pigmented “white” hair.
2.Thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid gland).
3.Pernicious anaemia (a decrease in the number of red blood cells due to a vitamin B12 deficiency).
4. Finger nail disfigurement  ” nail pitting” >sewing needle imprints on nail bed as nails are made up of the same hair protein keratin.
Approximately 20 percent of people with alopecia areata have a genetic family member influence . “Expert” opinions can be divided as they believe that people are greater in  a genetic predisposition to this disease rather than the ” immunological response” to bodies own immune system attacking itself !. If a relative has experienced hair loss before the age of 30, then the risk is increased further.
Alopecia areata typically begins with under skin inflammation and well before you discover that you have developed a small smooth, round five pence /dime size patches of complete hair loss, which can developed over a few weeks.
The development of shorten broken hairs are often mistaken for signs of regrowth to the uneducated.
Hair shafts are seen broken off at 8 millimetres from the scalp, are often found at the edges of expanding patches of hair loss.
These are sometimes referred to as “exclamation  hairs.” and can last a further 2-4 weeks in situ on the circumference of patch before final naked ness of scalp hair has been felt.
The loss of hairs are indicative of the very high activity of  underlying inflammation and spreading by the millimetre into the surrounding hair.
May it be reminded not all variants Alopecia cases are reported or diagnosed like this and careful and expert eyes are needed to provide the individuality of practical and pragmatic advice you need and deserve.
Hair Hospital is very active to protect those that are venerable thus advises patients not to focus on, what was months in advance programmed for loss however try to beat the 86% dominate common cause of “the self attacking immune system”.
Don’t always either rely on generic websites for finding a cure either as most will lead you into  a wild key word marketing use and false promising labelling of products, that even cause more distress especially to your pocket.
….In Hair Hospital 20 yrs of clinical experience by the time of discovery of hair loss and in most cases  regrowth has already begun over several months in patients.
Fortunately, the dermal intercellular activity can be revived in the follicles before 2 years to retain their ability to regrow hair, and the hair loss is not always permanent in most cases.
Alopecia areata is still of an unknown origin and may persist for several years and sometimes hair never regrows or hairs return a different hair textured state that’s unmanagable.
The patches may enlarge greater than 10pence/dollar coin and form chain or butterfly pattern, this again has an unexplained reason as to how  hair loss max’s ” burns”  out within this diameter.
The occipital region of the  scalp is the most common site for hair loss patches, but any area of the body can be affected like eyebrows, eyelashes and beard/pubic/under arm hair.
For many people, Alopecia disease does not progress beyond patchy hair loss on the scalp, but, in some cases the hair loss can be extensive as a small minority of patients will lose all the hair on their head known as alopecia Totalis or all the hair on their head and body alopecia Universalis.
