Hair Loss Reveals Surprising Heart Attack Risks in Men, Study Finds

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 02, 2013

Hair loss could be an indicator of more serious health risks, according to a new study by the American Heart Association. The study found that people with three visible aging signs are at a higher risk for heart attack and heart disease. One of the three aging signs were hair loss or a receding hairline.

Hair loss included charateristics such as a receding hairline at the temples and a bald spot on the back or on the top of the scalp.

The Danish study by the American Heart Association, where researchers analyzed about 11,000 men and women aged 40 and older, found some interesting results. Of the participants, 3,041 of them developed heart disease and 1,708 suffered a heart attack over 35 years of follow-up by the researchers. Hair loss was one of the four signs of heart disease that weren't as obvious as smoking or obesity. From these results, the study found that men with three aging characteristics were at 57% higher risk for a heart attack and 39% higher risk for heart disease.

Beverly Hills Hair Restoration, a hair transplant clinic in Los Angeles, advises that those experiencing hair loss determine what is causing the condition. A hair and scalp analysis, says Medical Director John Kahen, M.D., can determine if the hair loss is an indicator of a more serious health condition. While there is no way to determine if your genetic hair loss is an indicator of heart conditions later in life, more education and knowledge about the condition is a positive step, said the director.
