However, this onion madness seems to have some.. I repeat some... scientific basis and maybe that's where it all started. There is an actual research paper on the matter: https:...

The condition that you're asking about is called in the professional terminology: "madarosis" (but see the picture that I attached). As many proffessional books states, it's common in hypothyroidism, and they don't say it about hyperthyroidism. Then it make sense that it's not common in hyperthyroidism. But in medicine always can be exceptions. Regarding ...

Its pathogenesis is androgen dependent, and genetic predisposition is the major requirement for the phenotype. We demonstrate that genetic variability in the androgen receptor ...

That's a nice question. First of all, it is important to note that whenever a question of which drug to use arises, a number of factors should be taken into consideration, that is to say: prescribing a treatment is not simply a game of matching condition to drug (I am not saying that this is what the OP is saying or implying, this is just to illustrate ...

Some amphetamines can cause hair loss. The mechanism how this happens does not appear to be known. Also some anabolic steroids (AAS) can cause it, presumably through conversion to DHT. The situation with AAS is more complicated, as they can also cause the opposite (hirsutism). The effect of AAS depends on the area, i.e. whether the hair is androgenic or not....

"The closest thing the Google Gods suggest is allopecia, but I don't think allopecia does this"... YES! Alopecia does do this! Alopcia affects more than the hair on your head. It can manifest itself on other parts of your body where hair grows..including legs, arms and private areas. You say you don't want to see a doctor, but this may be a reason to see ...
