Baldness is a recessive gene that comes from your mother's side. If the men on her side are bald or if she has thinning hair chances are you will as well. If the loss is related to meds, talk to your doctor but with you having Crohns you never know. How bosley works is they transfer hair from the back of your scalp to the front. One of my sisters had it done 10 years ago. I'm considering it as well.
