If you’ve been losing your hair, these panels can help you pinpoint potential causes of hair loss & alopecia. The tests examine key hormones, nutrients, and inflammation markers, empowering you with important information to take control of your hair loss at any stage.
These hair loss blood tests are specifically tailored to assess key hormone levels (testosterone, DHT, thyroid profile), and evaluate essential nutrients (iron, ferritin, vitamin B12, and vitamin D), and identify inflammatory and autoimmune markers. By understanding these factors, you can begin to target the root causes of your hair loss, the first step to regaining healthier, more resilient hair.
Why would I need a blood test for hair loss?
These tests are performed to help identify potential causes of hair loss, such as:
- Hormonal imbalances
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Autoimmune disorders
- Other medical conditions
Blood work for hair loss can help you identify the underlying causes of your hair loss and formulate a treatment plan that can help manage and/or reverse the issue.
What are hair loss blood tests?
Hair loss blood tests are diagnostic tests that involve analyzing a blood sample to identify underlying causes of hair loss. These tests measure specific markers or substances in the blood that contribute to hair loss.
Our Hair Loss Trust Me Medium tests for the following valuable biomarkers:
- Vitamin B12
- Dihydrotestosterone (DHT)
- Testosterone, free & total
- Thyroid profile
- Vitamin D
These markers provide a deeper insight into hair loss through analysis of hormones, nutrient levels, inflammation and autoimmune conditions that affect your hair’s health and volume.
What are the most common types of hair loss?
The most common types of hair loss are:
- Androgenetic Alopecia (Male/Female Pattern Baldness)
- Telogen Effluvium
- Alopecia Areata
- Traction Alopecia
- Alopecia Universalis/Totalis
Keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list, and there are other less common forms of hair loss as well. Tests for hair loss can help you identify the type of hair loss you’re experiencing, and get the right treatment for you.
Can hair loss blood work determine the exact cause of my hair loss?
Yes. These tests can provide valuable information about potential underlying causes of hair loss. Testing for hair loss can also involve a biopsy of the scalp or a physical exam in addition to blood tests in order to determine the exact diagnosis for that human.
How long does it take to get the results of hair loss blood tests?
Your results will be delivered by email in 3-7 business days after the collection of your sample.
Can a blood test for alopecia predict if my hair will regrow?
Alopecia blood tests can provide insights into potential underlying causes of hair loss, but they cannot definitively predict if or how much hair will regrow. The regrowth of hair depends on various factors, including:
- Underlying cause(s)
- Treatment options
- Individual response to treatment
- Overall health
