Here's a qeustion. Can the genes that govern the hair, be affected by diet the same way that the immune genes can be affected by diet?

My hubby is a type A and starting going bald in his mid twenties. I hope by following th BTD he will stop losing hair or maybe even reverse the process.

1 out of 8 men go bald. It is a genetic component.

Damn.  I'm a 54 yr old female and I started massively shedding at age 47, and at the onset of menopause.

I am still DESPERATELY trying to solve my problem because I am STILL shedding and fear I will look like those smilies faces soon.  Help!

I am ordering the secretor test in hopes of getting a better handle on my situation and an answer.  I cry every day about my hair.  It is now so bad that you can see through my scalp, and is so embarrassing.

I wonder if there is a connection between cortisol and baldness?  I know I also have insomnia, can't fall asleep and only sleep an hour our two.  It's terrible.  I tried Melatonin, etc.  Ugh!

My dad was a Type A bald most of his life, my husband is type A thinned out very young, my son suspect Type A (but loves a lot of meat and chilli) and his hair has been receding for a while now.  He is only 30yrs old.  I am type A, my hair has been very thick all my life (I have eating meat, but also been vegetarian on and off most of my life).  I did get periods of massive shedding, but my thickness held.  Maybe those Vegetarian periods, which since I have been here I learnt to be the appropriate diet for my type, boosted my good genes and held my bad hair receding genes in check long enough to keep my mane.

After all, that is what we are here doing, yes, we may carry those hereditary genes within us, but, here we are shown the way to hold them in check and resetting them for our benefit.  We have the power.  Lets use it.

great you are getting your secretor test now!

follow the fatigue book and the protocols once you know your secretor status.

Hey Rosebud, here is an old thread from you regarding hairloss.

How did all the things you where doing work out MD's ND's tests etc? I thought I read somewhere long ago that you where getting a secretor test I guess you never did . I hope by now you are taking some probiotics that are right for your type.

How about just taking some biotin 8mg?
I also know we discussed that you needed a healthy gut to absorb these nutrients for your hair.

Most of us are forgetting one VERY important fact.  Take a look at Dr D!

So much for the theory of following the BTD and hair loss.  It's definitely genetic.

I have been closely following the BTD and my hair still falls out.  Nothing will stop it.  Nothing.

Is it normal for women to shed and start balding, and should we just blame it on her age?  Absolutely not!  It is definitely NOT normal.  However, it is very difficult to know what is really causing because so many factors play a part.  I wish I knew the answer and had the cure, because I would be a billionaire!

I belong to a women's hair loss forum, and there are hundreds of thousand of women suffering from this ailment with no cure in site.  I have belonged to the forum for 8 years now and none of us have found a cure, and we still continue to shed.  I think Oprah needs to put out requests for our plea and we would get enough interest, and possibly a solution.

Good point. Or, maybe it IS related to BT... If hair is made of protein (I think it is) and if hair protein is related to the consumption of protein (I have no idea if it is or isn't), then maybe BT A's are supposed to be bald! And maybe all those bald O's are not getting enough protein?
