  • Diagnose and categorize hair loss in women more effectively
  • Treat hair loss appropriately

Description:
Women with diffuse hair thinning can often have a significant underlying cause. The physician must frequently be a detective. This session will identity seven key areas that the physician can explore to determine the possible underlying cause of hair thinning, many of which may be serious diseases. Methods to do this in a timely manner (15-minute office workup) will be discussed. Finally, methods of treatment related to the underlying etiology will be identified.
