Hair loss identified as long-term symptom of COVID-19 – with women most at risk.

07.06.2021 in FEMALE HAIR LOSS

COVID-19: Hair loss identified as long-term symptom of coronavirus – with women most at risk, study says

The study also found that fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness and joint pain were “primary long-term symptoms” of the virus.

Nearly a quarter of COVID-19 patients suffer from hair loss within six months of infection, with women at greater risk, according to a new study.

Researchers studied several long-term symptoms in Wuhan, China, where the virus first emerged in late 2019, and found that 359 out of 1,655 hospital patients suffered from the condition.

The study, published in the medical journal The Lancet, also found that fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness and joint pain were “primary long-term symptoms” of coronavirus.

The authors of the paper said the long-term health consequences of COVID-19 remain “largely unclear”.

The study involved patients who had been discharged from Jin Yin-tan Hospital between 7 January and 29 May 2020 after being treated for COVID.

Researchers followed up with them six months later, when patients were interviewed with questionnaires for evaluation of symptoms, physically examined along with a six-minute walking test, and given blood tests.

The findings revealed that 63% of the patients experienced fatigue or muscle weakness, 26% suffered with sleeping problems, 23% had anxiety or depression, and 22% suffered from hair loss.

It also found that 76% of patients reported at least one symptom six months after the first symptom onset, with the proportion higher in women.

Patients who were severely ill from the virus were more likely to suffer from the likes of muscle weakness and depression.

The authors said: “We found that at six months after symptom onset, most patients endorsed at least one symptom, particularly fatigue or muscle weakness, sleep difficulties, and anxiety or depression.

“More severely ill patients had increased risk of pulmonary diffusion abnormality, fatigue or muscle weakness, and anxiety or depression.”

In a three-month follow-up survey of 538 COVID-19 patients, the researchers found that “physical decline or fatigue, post-activity polypnea (rapid breathing or panting), and alopecia were more common in women than in men”.

The study also looked at long-term extrapulmonary organ manifestations and death during follow-up, with some patients newly diagnosed with diabetes and venous thromboembolic diseases – which is when a blood clot forms.

The authors added that being a woman and severity of illness from the virus were also risk factors for “persistent psychological problems”, such as stress and anxiety.

The NHS lists fatigue, shortness of breath and dizziness among some of its long-term symptoms of COVID-19, but hair loss is not included in its list.

Female Hair Loss – Hanna’s Story

In December 2017 I found out I was expecting my first child .I was over the moon , but with raging hormones and the stress of managing my diabetes I noticed my hair was falling out . Every doctor and midwife I spoke to assured me it was completely normal and not to worry , however, myself and my mum wanted to get a professional opinion. My mum found the hair centre online and we went for a consultation.

Gary pretty much diagnosed me as soon as I walked in the door . I’m so glad I met Gary when I did as he caught my diagnosis just in time before it was too late . I’m glad I didn’t trust the other drs for I would be bald by now ! He put me on a course of treatment and now my hair is better than ever .

As well as being professional, Gary and his receptionist Olivia are lovely caring people and it’s been a pleasure to visit them for my check ups .

I was in a really low place when my hair started falling out .  Seeing clumps of hair on my pillow and in the bath was soul destroying and with friends and family telling me ‘ it’s not that bad ‘ it just made me feel worse.

Now with my hair growing back stronger and thicker I feel so much better and it’s lovely to receive compliments about my hair .  I can’t thank Gary enough for what he has done . There is nothing worse for a lady than feeling ‘un pretty’ . Gary saved my hair and made me feel pretty again . I’m so lucky to have met him when I did . Thank you Gary for giving me my confidence back and giving me the most beautiful head of hair !

These are examination follow up photos taken from February 2017 to October 2017. Priya is 42 and was suffering from Severe Telogen Effluvium and Severe Alopecia areata. She started treatment with us in late November 2016 and the first photo is the early signs of recovery in February 2017. The whole process of staging a full recovery took about a year. Priya was not the model patient and only managed check ups on a 2 monthly basis, but she never missed a treatment at home. We advised her to use out Vitastim amd Biostim treatments on a daily basis in conjunction with a Follicle Builder treatment every second day. You can see the results. We are pleased to report that her hair is now completely back to normal and she does not require any further treatments.

For you information:

Severe Alopecia Areata is an extremely common condition and will affect 1% to 2% of the population at some point in their lives. Most sufferers are children and young adults (below 40 years old), although it can affect people of all ages. The hair loss is sudden and manifests itself in small, smooth-skinned patches that are likely to gradually widen with time. It can also affect the sufferer’s nails, giving them a pitted, ridged or brittle appearance. The exact cause is still unknown, although current theories include an auto-immune disease, stress or suggest a genetic basis.

Severe Telogen Effluvium occurs when the growing phase of the hair is interrupted prematurely causing the hair follicles to enter the telogen (resting) phase of the hair cycle earlier than normal. Two to four months later, following the normal cyclic pattern, diffuse shedding of the hair begins. When this happens there are not enough hairs left in the anagen phase, or growing phase, and the result is therefore diffuse thinning of the hair. Telogen effluvium can be triggered by anaemia.
