   * **[[home:​pathogenesis:​th1spectrum|Comorbidities with other inflammatory conditions]]** – According to observational studies, patients suffering from known inflammatory diseases are somewhat more likely to get gray hair and vise-versa. This suggests some kind of shared pathology.   * **[[home:​pathogenesis:​th1spectrum|Comorbidities with other inflammatory conditions]]** – According to observational studies, patients suffering from known inflammatory diseases are somewhat more likely to get gray hair and vise-versa.

-    * **Heart attack (myocardial infarction)** – After statistical adjustment for possible confounders,​ one research team found a correlation between graying of the hair, facial wrinkling, and frontoparietal baldness and crown-top baldness and myocardial infarction in men.(({{pubmed>​long:​7484729}})) The relative risk was greater for men with completely gray hair as compared to men with moderately gray hair. Men who had completely gray hair had approximately double the risk of heart attack as compared to men with no gray hair. A similar although weaker and not statistically significant trend was seen in women. ​+    * **Heart attack(myocardial infarction)** – After statistical adjustment for possible confounders,​ one research team found a correlation between graying of the hair, facial wrinkling, and frontoparietal baldness and crown-top baldness and myocardial infarction in men.(({{pubmed>​long:​7484729}})) The relative risk was greater for men with completely gray hair as compared to men with moderately gray hair.
