I am only a teen and I notice my hair

Patient : I am only a teen and I notice my hair falling. None of my parent have genetic baldness. I was wondering why this is happening to me and how I can stop it.
Doctor :   Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you. Hair fall at your age is most commonly due to dandruff, iron def iciency, calcium deficiency, vitamin D deficiency and thyroid issues. I would advise you to see your doctor if you have any dandruff. He will also get you following tests done: 1. Iron studies. 2. Vitamin D and Calcium levels. 3. Hemogram 4. Thyroid profile. If everything is normal, he will treat you with a good multivitamin supplement. Share my opinion with your doctor. I hope it helps. Stay Healthy
