Alopecia: Hair fall genes also guide your therapy
Hormonal dysfunction is what leads to premature hair fall in men and women. This frequently occurs in those of us with overactive genes in the androgen and estrogen pathways leading to androgenetic alopecia and diffuse or female pattern hair loss.
While there are many reasons for hair fall, having these risk genes is one surefire factor. They also determine what kinds of therapies, medications and nutrition can actually help prevent and delay balding in men and women.
Acne: nutrition and medication guidance from your genes
Acne, or pimples, frequently occur on the face, neck, shoulders and buttocks. There is a reason they appear during puberty because it’s the androgen hormone pathways and their triggers that contribute to them.
Genes decide if you may have a lot of acne and the risks of having it beyond adolescence during adulthood. They also guide you on how to treat and prevent acne with the right dietary intake of micronutrients or topical medications.
Skin allergies and Eczema: is your skin barrier weak and how to strengthen it?
Skin is our primary barrier and protection from the environment. However, many of us have a gene for weak or dysfunctional skin barrier. This allows foreign particles easy entry into the body, such as pollutants, pollen and chemicals.
This not only leads to aging, but also causes frequent allergies (atopic dermatitis), eczema (atopic), and in severe cases to ichthyosis. All of these are characterized by dry, flaky skin. Discovering the genetic factor leads to precision medicine treatment of these conditions.
Hirsutism: Genes hold your nutrition and medication
Incidentally, some of us with overactive hormone genes develop excessive and unwanted facial and body hair. This leads to hyperactive pathways of androgens and estrogens, which can be controlled by adequate diet, nutrition and medicines.
If you carry these overactive genes, there are ways to inhibit them by precision diet and nutrition, as well as by precision medicine.
