Are there treatments for thinning hair in thin women with PCOS?

I am 41 years old and have PCOS, but have always been thin. I work out regularly including weight training and cardio, eat a clean diet and do not have any other health issues such as high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, or other associated with PCOS. My main issues have been lack of periods (only get when on birth control pills) and some unwanted hair growth on face and body. However, over the past year I have noticed that my hair is thinning and I'd like to know if there are any treatments or supplements that might help beyond diet and exercise.

Hi Anon,
Well with my diverse health and wellness background as well as thinning hair and the beauty arenas, you mentioned your "only" issues was periods? This is a HUGE contributing factor which may say to me HairDocTK, is there an overage or shortage of dhea? what is you numbers? yourself at ties should be averaging around 300 to 400 optimal levels if too low or too high this can be a factor to excessive hair on face and the period issues

Yes there are several "natural" approaches , as I personally myself had serve hair loss issues in my late 20ties, still fighting it at late 40ties plus, due to a few surgeries on my knees, shoulders, breasts, and a misdiagnosis that put me out for 2 years . I now have personally dedicated myself to reeducation ,and proudly serving the beauty, entertainment, and medical industries, through the use of ph balanced products, natural pharmaceutics, body chemistry modification , real facts in science, diet and exercise.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question. So sorry to hear this. Some form of treatment for hair thinning due to PCOS can be Androgen-blocking medications, it can help in both excess hair and thinning hair.

Here's a link that can help on hair loss,
