Carun, a hormone disorder is a disorder where there is too much or too little of a specific hormone. If your problem is due to a hormone disorder, it is probably thyroid hormone or cortisol, but it is seldom due to oestrogen. I wrote something on hair loss a while ago and if you’re interested in a copy, you can e-mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za. Good luck.
