To Bill Roberts et al:
Care to speculate on estrogen’s role in Male Pattern Baldness? I’ve read an article in Men’s Fitness (or another useless rag) where the author actually implicated Estrogen as a more prominent cause of hair loss.
I'm considering Finasteride (1.5 mg per day) to slow (hopefully re-grow as well) my hair loss. I recently read a somewhat eye-opening article on Meso-Rx outlining the function of DHT in the body in much more detail then I've had in the past and I'm trying to piece together the larger picture with regard to my MPB.
If Bill or anyone could address Estrogen's possible involvement in Male Pattern Baldness, I'd appreciate it. If so, I'd like to be properly equipped to address a possible high level of estrogen.
I plan on having blood work done before starting the Finasteride, so I will hopefully have some data on DHT and Estrogen levels, but until then, the help would be appreciated.
I definitely don’t want to go to a G.P. uninformed, god knows they’re not going to help.
