Is baldness in women linked to heart attacks?

Posted Oct 01 2008 8:12pm

Male-pattern baldness is very common in men and fairly common in women. Male pattern baldness may be caused by high blood insulin levels caused by eating large amounts of refined carbohydrates. It is associated with high insulin levels and an increased risk for heart attacks in women as well as in men ( Dermatology Online Journal, November 2005). Although not an established treatment, you may be able to halt further hair loss, AND reduce your risk for heart attacks, by eating a diet that is low in refined carbohydrates.
