NEW YORK (WABC) It’s typical for the average person to lose about 100 hairs from their head every day. What if you could find out if you were going to go bald before visible hair loss started? A new DNA test is giving those who want it, the power to see what their future holds.
Some consider it part of their style. Others do everything they can to prevent it. Would you want to find out if baldness was in your crystal ball?
“This is exciting because it’s the first lab test for hair loss,” said Dr. Alan Bauman, a board-certified hair restoration physician at Bauman Medical Group in Boca Raton, Florida
People hand over a saliva swab. It’s taken back to the lab where the DNA is analyzed. Researchers look for a genetic variation on the X chromosome that’s linked to hair loss.
