Blood Tests for Hair Loss

If you’re suffering from hair loss looking at your blood chemistries can be a very helpful method for investigating the cause of your concern.  Blood works are also a helpful tool for identifying the kind of support your body needs to specifically target and correct hair loss as a symptom of unidentified or underlying ill-health. 

An optimal balance of blood products is crucial for healthy hair cell development and hair shaft growth. When the roots of the hair, which are surrounded by blood vessels are deprived of oxygen or nutrients, or if they’re assaulted by toxic elements that interfere with blood flow they begin to weaken – this can interrupt the natural hair growth cycle.

Trichology blood works are used to investigate whether hair loss is a symptom of: Nutritional imbalance, Anemia, Hormonal imbalance, Autoimmune concern, Toxic Heavy Metals. Every test is followed up with a full trichology analysis, I will help you identify the kind of support your body needs to specifically target and correct hair loss.
Blood chemistry results in the normal ranges normally tell a doctor whether your health is in keeping with general population averages for health.  Although normal ranges are believed to be sufficient for physical health, they can indicate a deficiency in components essential for healthy hair cell development and the optimal function of the growth cycle.
I can provide you with a Dr referral letter if you would like to discuss having the blood tests through the NHS with your GP or consultant.  Alternatively, I’m registered with Regenerus, Medichecks and BioLab Medical Unit London UK as a hair loss specialist. Each of the labs offer private blood testing kits by post, giving you the option of having the sample taken at a local venue by a phlebotomist or with full instructions for self-testing by finger prick method.
