H air Loss Causes
There can be a number of reasons for the onset
of hair loss. It is always a good idea to check with your
doctor to make sure there aren't any medical reasons. However,
Androgenetic Alopecia or pattern baldness causes 95% of all
hair loss. This type hair loss is driven by DHT
(DiHydroTestosterone). Hair follicles have receptors for
DHT which allow the DHT to attach itself to the hair follicle
shrinking it and eventually keeping it from producing more
The DHT Factor
The most widely accepted theory of what causes Androgenetic
Alopecia is the DHT factor. DHT is produced when the enzyme
5 alpha reductase combines with testosterone. DHT then attaches
it self to the hair follicle eventually causing it to stop
producing hair. Apparently, the inherited genetic trait for
hair loss, makes some hair follicles more susceptible to DHT.
DHT Blockers - Do dht blockers work?
It is now widely accepted that the main culprit in the hair
loss of 95% of us is DHT. Therefore the principal aspect of
the strategy to stop hair loss is to block dht. Do
dht blockers work? Yes, they do. It is important to note
that Propecia the most popular drug sold to stop hair loss
is a DHT
blocker. Propecia works by lowering the levels of DHT
in the body by blocking the enzyme 5 alpha reductase. We must
keep in mind that Propecia is a drug and it has some side
effects. For men, the main side effect is a decrease in libido,
dificulty achieving an erection and a decrease in the amount
of semen released. Propecia is contraindicated for use in
women. Pregnant women should not even handle a broken pill
due to severe risks to the fetus.
