    TLDR More men than women have hair loss, it's often inherited, and it's linked with higher testosterone levels. There's been a rise in female hair loss patients.
    This study aimed to evaluate the family history, clinical, and endocrine status of patients with androgenetic alopecia. The study included 796 patients with androgenetic alopecia who visited the Alopecia Clinic at Chung-Ang University Hospital over a period of three years. The results showed that male patients were 1.7 times more common than female patients, with most of them being in their twenties. The most common type of alopecia in male patients was Norwood class II, while in female patients it was Ludwig class I. A majority of male and female patients had a family history of alopecia. The most common accompanying disorder was seborrheic dermatitis. Increased serum testosterone levels were observed in a subset of male and female patients. The conclusion of the study was that the results were mostly consistent with a previous study conducted in 1995, but there has been an increase in the number of female androgenetic alopecia patients, resulting in a marked difference in the male-to-female ratio.
