Hello- New old guy (47) with q about TRT and Male Pattern Baldness
Apparently I have had issues with Low T for maybe 7 years but was not sure what was wrong at first. I had hoped it would resolve itself but it never did. Last year it really started hitting me and then it kept getting worse and worse where I was having problems functioning so I went to my Dr late last year. After running tests she found I had low T and sent me to a urologist. He put me on TRT which is a jell you put under your armpits like Antiperspirant. Needless to say it has given me a second chance at life- I really feel that much better. I was too weak to exercise and Now I can already run several miles again and the weight is started to come off. But I think my hair is coming off as well About 10 years ago in my late 30's a small thin spot formed in the back. I got sick not long afterwords and the spot never grew so it was never a problem. Now after just 6 weeks of TRT it appears to have started growing bigger and becoming more defined with hair in the spot getting wispy.
Could Male Pattern Baldness hit me so quickly at the beginning of treatment (~6 weeks now). I am not on body building juice, just the jell stuff that my shot taking friend says is pretty weak compared to what he is on.
If anyone has seen this happen, how fast did the baldness spread?
I have not felt this good in years and at my age it is not a big deal, but I would still like to know if this is normal so soon and what to expect speed wise.
