Default Embarrassing Question

Since working out more, I've started to lose my hair, its coming out in handfuls during sessions, that can't be normal can it? Is there a correlation between testosterone and balding? I'm worried I have alopecia.

maybe see a doctor....i have usually found that forums are usually good for entertainment but not so much when it comes to medical questions.

Thanks dude, I suspected as much but was kinda hoping it was a known phenomenon from too much exercise. Its odd that it only happens during training though, not sure if I'm pushing too hard or something. Today I found myself having to scoop it up into my tracksuit pockets so people woldn't notice.

Just thought I would share a link. Seeing a doctor is always a good idea (particularly one who is knowledgeable about nutrition, which isn't all). Exercise & Hair Loss | LIVESTRONG.COM

Definitely see a doctor. The 'coming out in handfuls' is worth a visit to the doctor.

Hi MastyMasty,

I'm not sure if you are male or female but I assume female. No, hair loss like that isn't normal at all. Exercise is not associate with this. Pls see your Doctor for a work up. Alopecia seems likely but best to get it checked.
