In a survey conducted in country’s capital it is found that 70% of men average aged 25 faced some kind of hair loss as per a report released by Dalmia Medicare, a new applicant in diagnostic chains.
Majority of them were found to be deficient in Vitamin B complex, mainly B3 and B12. Smokers also had a high incidence of hair loss as compared to non-smokers since nicotine hampers blood flow and affects hair growth.
Over the past one year, there has been an increase in semen analysis (sperm count and morphology) and testosterone hormone profile tests. Reports showed loss of libido in around 15 per cent men. Additionally, the sperm count associated with healthy men range between 40-300 million, however cases of the count falling below 10 million have risen by 63 per cent,” said Dr Sunita Yadav, Head Quality, Dalmia Medicare.
The survey conducted by Dalmia Medicare analysed 1,90,000 diagnostic tests carried out in Delhi-NCR in 2016 to come up with these findings. “When we started the study in January, the percentage of men with a low sperm count was 14%. By November, this had risen to 27%,” says Dr Sunita Yadav, head quality, Dalmia Medicare.
Delhi men also fared poorly in their testosterone tests with 60% of those tested falling in the lower range – below 300-350 (normal range is 300-1200ng/dl). Dr Yadav blamed stress, smoking, increased air pollution as some of the factors for this trend.
