I see my. Hair seems to be thin loke i can see my scalp more

Customer Question

I see my. Hair seems to be thin loke i can see my scalp more easily especially when i run my hands through my hair but i dont seem to be losing hair nithinvajor like if i run my hands through my head grip and pull on the hair ill get 5 to 10 tops hairs come out ,as far as i can tell i have not found any hair in my shower drain or anything like that yet my hair seems to have thinned ? What can be causing this if im not actually going bald ? My father bas full head of hair my brother the same and my grandfathers both of them had pretty full heads of hair
Im thinking my drug use marijuana and recently but not heavily xanax to sleep may have something to do with it? Also my semen volume very low which im also thinking may be tied to thin hair

this is Dr. David

thinning of male hair is very common and can be normal in men as we get older.

but you should see your doctor and get some blood testing.

low thyroid hormone levels, low iron, low b12, low biotin can all cause thinning of hair.

use of a marijuana can cause blood vessels to constrict and can increase your blood pressure

marijuana can also decrease your testosterone levels

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6090909

lower testosterone levels can affect semen volume as well

you should see your doctor to get some blood testing

and seeing if you stop marijuana use, if your hair and semen get better

Just had full blood count blood work done and my doctor didnt call me in to go over results im assuming cause there was nothing to talk about being that i healthy. Who should i see about fact i think im going bald ? For sure my hair is thinning and i dont know if there is anyone i should go see and if there are any tests to see if im going bald ornif its thanks to something else maybe low levels of something
Expert:  Dr. David replied 11 months ago.

you can see a dermatologist about it if you want.

full blood testing often doesn't include ferritin levels, thyroid hormone levels, B12, and vitamin D levels.

these have to be added on.

your testosterone levels need to be checked as well.

let me know if you have other questions.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 11 months ago.

how old are you?

cancer would cause more symptoms than just hair thinning.

if you are worried about hair loss, you should stop smoking.

best to get those levels checked like I mentioned before.

if you have a smart phone, you can upload your labs to a file sharing site like drop box or google files

and post the http link here so I can then download them.
