    TLDR Women under 55 with hair loss (AGA) may have a higher risk of heart disease (CAD).
    This study found a significant correlation between androgenetic alopecia (AGA) and coronary artery disease (CAD) in women under the age of 55. AGA is a condition characterized by hair loss, and the study found that women with AGA have certain hormonal differences that may contribute to CAD. The findings suggest that female AGA may be a marker for increased risk of CAD events, but further research is needed to confirm these findings.
