What is Disaccharidase Deficiency And How To Treat It?
Disaccharidase Deficiency: Symptoms and Treatment


widespread hair loss and thinning that permeates throughout the entire scalp

About 2-6 % of men have this pattern of hair loss [1].

- Self-diagnosable
- Can be treated by a medical professional
- Lab testing or imaging rarely required
- Mid-term: can take up to several weeks or months to get treated

Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia or DUPA is not the same as normal Alopecia as there is no particular area that can get affected. It usually presents itself on the sides and the back of the head at first, unlike male pattern hair loss (MPH), which typically occurs at the hairline and the crown. Similarly, its female type may at times be mistaken with typical female patterned baldness. It is more common in the case of women as compared to men.

Ages affected: any age group, especially adults


Symptoms may include rampant thinning or hair which looks like unpatterned hair loss

People may experience:
Hair thinning areas: scalp, front, back, or sides
Also common: miniaturization or shortening or hair strands, other medical issues like autoimmune deficiencies, iron deficiency or thyroid


Self-care: avoid opting for hair transplant as it is not a safe option in the long term.

Medication: medical treatment is the best option, platelet-rich plasma including medications are the best.

Specialists: for medical treatment, contact a hair and scalp specialist. At mfine, our only priority is to provide you with the finest range of doctors who can provide you with the best healthcare treatments.
