I am 37 and my hair has stayed virtually 'white free' until three months ago, suddenly I am growing totally white really quickly, why is this please?

Dr. K. : Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today. Premature white or grey hair that occurs quickly is usually genetic in origin. It can happen quickly if all the cells stop producing melanin at once. It can be a sign of other medical conditions such as thyroid disease, b12 deficiency and anemia so you will want fo see your Dr and have blood work done.
Dr. K. : I hope this helps.
