A research study revealed how specifically body organs deteriorate and lose function from chronic obesity. Researchers have found the reason why obesity causes hair thinning. The results of the study were published in the journal NatureThey found that stem cells in hair follicles in mice given a high-fat diet behave differently than those in mice given a standard diet.
Inflammatory signals in stem cells led to these differences, resulting in hair thinning and hair loss These fascinating data highlight the complex link between obesity and organ dysfunction. It is known that obesity is linked to the development of many diseases in humans.
In a recent study, a group of researchers from Tokyo Medical University used model mice experiments to examine how a high-fat diet or genetically induced obesity could affect hair thinning and loss.
The researchers found that obesity can lead to the depletion of hair follicle stem cells by stimulating certain inflammatory signals, which prevents hair follicle regeneration and eventually leads to hair follicle loss. HFSCs By self-renewing each hair follicle cycle, this is part of the process that allows our hair to grow continuously. HFSCs In renewing itself which leads to a reduction in the number HFSCs Thus hair thinning Although overweight people have a higher risk of developing androgenetic alopecia, whether obesity accelerates hair thinning is questionable.
This study provided interesting new insights into the changes and tissue imbalance that can occur after a genetically induced high-fat diet or obesity and may open the door to the prevention and future treatment of hair thinning as well as to the understanding of obesity.
According to a report by the site time now news Heart disease, diabetes, and other diseases are very common in obese people, yet it is not entirely clear exactly how the body’s organs deteriorate and lose function due to chronic obesity.
