Hair transplant is a very good solution for hair loss. But a good, skilled surgeon is the precondition. It's possible to give a normal look after first setting of hair transplant surgery if surgery is done by skilled hand with latest technology...

Yes there is my friend !

I had NO hair problem and had helicobacter for a year, i lost a lot of them i was so afraid.
After eradication was done i had to undergo Mesotherapy of the hair ( its micro injection of vitamins/oligo elements/DHT inhibitors and vasodilator.
It worked in about 3 months but its expensive as fuck ( 80 euros per session and you have to do like 20 ).

it's really hard to know when exactly you were infected with H. pylori. We believe people were usually infected when they are young. Many studies have shown that children as young as 2 years old is already infected with H. pylori.

If H. pylori is indeed related to hair loss, I think half the world population will be bold.

well about 40% of men do have hair loss.
And even if its clearly linked to the DHT there is no telling that some vitamin imbalance could speed up the process.

And since Helico screws up your digestion...

very true. then again, there are so many other unknown guts bacteria in the intestine. many of them is related to food processing and nutrient, vitamin producing. Cant just point fingers at H. pylori.

I just checked out your addition, some of it may have been cut out.
Rosacea for example is associated with H. Pylori significantly. It’s interesting to note that Demodex is also associated with Rosacea. Is there a connection?
I agree that H. Pylori is a major factor in skin diseases, as well as many other major diseases, especially autoimmune liver and pancreatic problems, even blood disorders.
Helicobacter pylori is strongly associated with low stomach acid production, which means a lack of intrinsic factor and pepsin, that alone is enough to impair absorption of vitamin B12.
With that said, a deficiency of B12 could lead to hair loss.
But even worse, low stomach acid production affects absorption of minerals. Inflammation is reason enough to erradicate H. Pylori.
I know there is a link between H. Pylori and Alopecia Areata, but wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if AGA hair loss is at least exacerbated by it.

H. pylori is not associated with Rosacea.
H. pylori only infect the stomach and perhaps, also have connection to other organs of digestive system.

Alopecia areata is a disease of the hair follicles, with strong evidence supporting autoimmune etiology. Alopecia areata is frequently associated with immune-mediated diseases with skin manifestations such as psoriasis and lichen planus, or without skin manifestations such as autoimmune thyroiditis and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is present in around 50% of the world’s population and has been associated with a variety of immune-mediated extra-digestive disorders including autoimmune thyroiditis, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, and psoriasis. A case of a 43-year old man with an 8-mo history of alopecia areata of the scalp and beard is presented.

I have hair loss nearly 2 years of it. Had stomach pain the entire time. I asked dr at time would the stomach pain i had that went away wen i ate be connected to it
They said it was just indigestion. 104 days ago i finished antibiotic treatment for h pylori. I diagnosed myself. And was right. My hair loss has or the past 3 weeks nearly stopped. I was loosong 100s a day. For example 100 in 30 minutes. Every single day nearly from march 2016. I have had no regrowth or very little
I put my hands through my hair now and at the moment i am not havig 10 strands come out in my hand. Sometimes i havr 1 come out. It was torture every day. I just hope my hait starts to thicken up now.

I have lost over 60 percent of my hair. The hair in my head is thinner. I am going to wait and see what happens i hope my hair now starts to rapidly regrow and regrow thick hair.

I 100 percent believe there is a connection. My pain started a couple months before hair loss started, pain and hair loss going on from jan feb 2016 until this winter. The bug is gone now 104 days and hair fall has slowed right down. Has anyone else experienced this?

My vitamins and minerals were all sound no problem wit them. I ate really healthyly when i realised i had hair loss. I also feveloped around the time of taking the antibiotics in septemeber for 3 weeks after the antibiotic treatment a spotty rash on my forehead. Everytime i had a bath or put hot water to my face it would flare up. Doesnt happen anymore.

However i do have dandruff/itchy in my eyebrows now this past 4 weeks. Never in my life had this or hait loss. Hair loss isnt heriditary 100 percent not. Been 2 3 derms and several drs all agree. My female relative all have my hair in their 80s and 60s full heads of hair and colour the same as mine.
