OK I was just reading around on Dr. Mercola’s
site, and I found this fascinating article
linking IR (insulin resistance) to hairloss.
Now my worst hairloss (actually almost all of it) occured while my insulin sensitivity was worst. At the time I thought the hairloss was due to androgen issues. But now I strongly suspect it was due to the IR issues, and not due to androgens. Especially since I have recently done some heavy androgens with no noticable additional hairloss.
COULD IT BE that the epidemic of hairloss currently seen has MUCH more to do with the other current epidemic of IR, rather than to androgen issues? I (speculatively) propose that it does. Now my father was born a long time ago (1919) and we had a discussion many years ago about how male hairloss was not so common when he was growing up as it was at the time we had that discussion. Now correlate the trends: IR and diabetes was FAR less common in the 19th century and early 20th century. And (apparently) hairloss was not as common either. So all you dudes on the T-mag forum with ongoing hairloss probs might want to get your insulin sensitivity checked out.
Of course, I could be wrong. Like they say, this requires more research...
