While some hair loss may be caused by medical conditions or taking certain medications, the leading cause of hair loss in men is linked to genetics. This video takes a closer look at genetic hair loss in men.
Male pattern baldness is polygenic, meaning that it comes from both the mother and father’s genes. Men whose mothers carry a gene known as the autosomal antigen receptor gene are considered a high risk variant and may be at a 70 percent risk for going bald. You can learn how your hair loss specialist can test for this antigen receptor by watching the full clip.
