Male pattern hair loss (MPHL) is the most common form of hair loss in men, affecting around 30-50% of men by age 50.
Recent studies suggest that the rate of MPHL may be increasing. A survey from China found that the condition affected 21.3% of men in 2010 and 27.5%.
Research shows that nutrition plays an important role in MPHL. Some studies suggest that glucose metabolism may influence hair loss.
