Shocking new figures reveal the true impact of hair loss on men in the North West

SHOCKING new research has revealed the true impact of hair loss on young men in the North West. The study by Asda Pharmacy shows that 47% of men in the region have found hair loss a reason to worry. For many men symptoms of hair loss are an enormous emotional burden. The region's men admitted feeling self conscious (25%), unattractive (20%) and frustrated (12%) due hair loss. At a stage in life when many young people are socialising, meeting new friends and making connections, 24% are held back, saying their hair loss makes them feel less confident when it comes to dating. 18% of men have been the subject of jokes by loved ones due to the condition. It is perhaps unsurprising then the lengths they would go to, to avoid hair loss. Nearly 1 in every 10 men in the region would rather take a pay cut at work than experience hair loss, the same amount that would sooner develop an allergy to their favourite food.  Maq Din, Healthcare Clinical Services Manager at Asda Pharmacy, says:- "There are many more options available now and not just for the rich and famous. It is no surprise that hair loss has a huge impact on men and their self esteem and confidence. But it is very sad to see they are not seeking advice and solutions. Our Hair loss service enables men to have a private consultation with an accredited pharmacist and purchase the tablets without taking time out to visit their GP."

Despite the huge emotional and psychological impact being felt by the region's men, 82% have never sought any professional help. GP and Television Presenter Dr Hilary Jones says:- "The results of this survey show the damaging impact hair loss can have on young men in the UK. When people are made to feel depressed and self-conscious it is not a matter to be trivialised just because it is an aesthetic issue. I would encourage anyone struggling with the effects of hair loss to seek help accordingly".

At Asda pharmacies across the country men suffering from hair loss can seek advice and treatment, 7 days a week. Asda is committed to offering affordable healthcare, and their price compared to other popular high street retailers where finasteride is available, is saving customers as much as 43%. Finasteride oral tablets are just ₤28 for a month's supply at Asda; the equivalent of ₤1 per day. Boots currently charges ₤49 for 28 tablets; while Lloyds Pharmacy charges ₤45, and Superdrug sells it for ₤37. For more information please visit:- ASDA.Com.
