BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Can losing your hair be a signal that you're at risk for a heart attack? A new report that analyzed six large studies involving almost 37,000 men says there is a link.
The hair loss called "male pattern baldness" comes in two forms - a receding hairline at the forehead, and hair loss on top. The new report found that baldness on top, but not in the front, was related to an increased risk of coronary heart disease.
We can measure the severity of hair loss, and the men with the most hair loss at the top were about one-third more likely to have coronary disease than men who weren't bald. Even younger men - less than 55 - showed a relationship between being bald on top and the risk of heart disease.
There's also an association between creases in the ears and heart disease.
