Mr. Z. A. aged 30 years (Patient Identification Number 16495), from Berkeley, California, was suffering from hair fall since last seven years. He contacted us for the treatment of hair fall and for re growth in hair.
He sent photos for evaluation. After taking his medical details and viewing the photos, our team of Doctors explained that with medicines, he can have a very good control in the hair fall; re-growth was not possible. He had developed male pattern baldness. He felt sad; however he was grateful of being informed about the scope of treatment beforehand in a very transparent manner. He said that he would be more than happy, if we could arrest the further hair loss. With this understanding he began the online treatment on 11 June 2009.
He would lose around 50-100 hair strands daily and this had amounted to development of male pattern baldness. His hairline was receding from the frontal area. In the last few years he had noticed that the hair had become dry and there was accompanying dandruff problem on the scalp with excessive itching.
He had a family history of baldness, his father and elder brother were bald and he was very worried as he did not want to become bald like them.
His appetite was average. He had marked craving for sweets. His sleep was disturbed and filled with thoughts and worries about the future. He also complained of mild constipation. Thermally he was more tolerant to the cold weather.
He was working with an automobile dealer. He was staying with his parents. In his work place he was working with a few close friends and cousins.
As a person he was very career minded and wanted to achieve a good name and fame in his profession. He was very hard working and always demanded good work from his subordinates. He was highly dedicated and intelligent and he would get anxious if there was some pending work. He was facing some difficulties at work place due to his high expectation from others.
His constant worry was that his subordinates, who were his close relatives didn’t understand his principals about work quality. He could not express his fears in front of anyone. He preferred to keep a good image in front of his subordinates. He was not very communicative with his parents.
