Hey guys I’m trying to get a firmer grasp on the rather confusing subject of Male Pattern Baldness and where androgens fit in…
I see it commonly asserted on a lot of forums and articles written by steroid users that DHT derivatives are the worst offenders for hair loss because “they’re DHT”. However, if my interpretation of the information is correct, this is not in any shape or form true.
For example, masteron and anavar are both DHT derived steroids. Yet masteron has a reputation for hair loss in those prone, anavar however is regarded as a much “safer” drug. The fact that they are both derived from DHT means, seemingly, nothing at all. They are no longer DHT, just as DHT is no longer acting like its parent hormone testosterone.
Secondly, looking at the medical guidelines on masteron for breast cancer treatment in woman, masteron is regarded as less virilizing than equal dosages of testosterone propionate, which ultimately I think means its less potent than DHT… Or, it doesnt exhibit as much interaction with the AR in certain tissues. (from memory I think DHT is much more active in the brain/CNS, and testes than it is in other tissues??)
So I guess what I’m asking is experiences or thoughts from guys who have run the compounds commonly demonized alone, or otherwise with very low total dosages of testosterone.
