How is Androgenetic Alopecia Diagnosed?

History and the physical examination are the important part of diagnosis in the person with androgenetic alopecia. However, the following laboratory tests can play a major role in the diagnose of this condition:

  • Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate and Testosterone Analysis: It is done in women in case virilization is apparent.
  • Iron, Total Iron-Binding Capacity, and Transferrin Saturation: This test is done to detect iron deficiency, in case telogen effluvium is there.
  • Thyrotropin Level: This test is done in case the thyroid disorder is expected.
  • Biopsy and Histology: A biopsy is needed rarely to diagnose androgenetic alopecia. In the biopsy a small section of scalp generally 4mm in diameter is eliminated. It is then examined under a microscope to find the cause of hair loss.
  • Serum AMH (Anti Mullerain Hormone): This test is done in women.
