Causes of Hair Loss in Mature Men

Common causes of hair shedding in elderly men are:

Androgenic Alopecia

Probably the most common cause of hair loss in men of all ages is Androgenic Alopecia. This type of hair loss is not caused by some underlying disease or medication. Rather, it is often heredity, caused by a mix of genes and hormones. Nowadays, boys as young as in their late teens and early 20s start losing hair, but balding patterns become more prominent as you mature, at the age of 35 and above. As you age, hair growth rate decreases and effects of hair shedding become more prominent.

Iron Deficiency

After Androgenic Alopecia, the most common cause of hair loss in mature men is iron deficiency, a medical condition known as anemia. Iron deficiency can be due to poor diet or some underlying condition. When you are iron deficient, your blood finds it hard to supply oxygen and other nutrients to the hair follicles. This ultimately weakens the follicles, and after some time it appears in the form of hair loss.

Thyroid Disorders

Thyroid is a small, butterfly shaped gland responsible for production of thyroid hormone. If you body fails to regulate it efficiently, it starts producing hormone either less than or more than the required amount. Excessive production of hormone is called hyperthyroidism, whereas less than ample production is called hypothyroidism. Both these conditions can trigger hair loss. Medications prescribed for thyroid disorders also often result in hair loss.


As you age, your body’s defense system weakens and you become more susceptible to different diseases, from cardiac issues to diabetes to liver and kidney dysfunctions. Medicines used to treat these ailments can cause hair loss. Some medicines that have been associated with hair shedding include Blood Thinners (used to treat various heart conditions), Gout Medications, antidepressants, Chemotherapy, thyroid medications and chemotherapy medicines.

3 Best Fixes for Hair Loss

Eat Healthy

The easiest and simplest way to counter hair loss of any type is through diet. Start eating healthy to provide your hair follicles with all essential nutrients required for healthy hair growth – proteins, iron, vitamins, omega 3 fatty acids, biotin, magnesium and zinc. If you have balding genes, dietary changes alone may not be that helpful in controlling hair loss, but together with right treatment and right products, it can all work really well.

  • Laser Light Therapy

Low light laser combs are really effective in combating mild to moderate hair loss. Skin care clinic offer laser light treatments for hair regrowth, but they are a little expensive. If you are short on budget, you can always benefit from at-home handheld devices. Laser light is supposed to trigger hair regrowth by enhancing blood flow in the areas of treatment.

  • Hair Transplant Surgery

If you have gone completely bald in some areas of the scalp and non-surgical solutions have failed to offer relief, you can always benefit from Hair Transplant Surgery. The procedure does not regrow hair. Rather it redistributes existing healthy hair on the scalp to add a thicker and healthier look to the scalp.
