Testing for Hair Loss Risk Factors

Dr. Shapiro has observed what appears to be a strong correlation between men and women who take popular weight loss and body building products containing whey protein isolate -- and their reports of accelerated hair loss. For those with a genetic predisposition for hair loss , there appears to be an even greater correlation.

After conducting a study and doing his own research on enhanced whey protein concentrate, Dr. Shapiro has concluded that whey protein isolate is causing a nutritional imbalance, which may be resulting in accelerated premature hair loss. As a result of a small study, Dr. Shapiro believes that this type of hair loss can be prevented and possibly reversed once the nutritional imbalance is corrected.

In order to identify the imbalance correctly, Dr. Shapiro has created a high risk marker blood panel. It may be utilized by those who want to take a more proactive role in curtailing their hair loss or reversing the damage associated with this type of nutritional imbalance - an imbalance caused by lifestyle factors and the consumption of whey protein isolate and other popular weight loss and body building products such as creatine, growth hormone and testosterone.
