If you are familiar with the ATM site, have you read the hormones primer, specifically the one about DHT & Hair Loss?
Your DHT is within the high end of the range…I would kill for that sort of viralization, can’t imagine why you would want to lower that on the off chance that it might save you some hair…
What was your cortisol level?[/quote]
It is really bizarre, my whole life I have not had that much body hair, without TRT I could basically skip shaving but once a month. Now it is once a week.
I try to keep my cortisol high, will not take phosphatydil serine ever again because with my UC condition the doctors like to put me on high dose prednisone ( synthetic C ) and that is really bad stuff so I am leaving C where it is - however it was not tested in any of the 4 tests this year.
I am next to zero fat and muscular so I am happy with that, but the thin hair was freaking me out, it is looking better and the shedding seemed to stop. Going to apply minoxodil nightly and see if that helps. I hear about a 3-way topical compound and want to try that.
UC and prednisone makes you lose all muscle quickly, begins to shrink bones if you do not get off and leaves me looking tired and not so youthful in the face. Post UC flare I bulk back up and I think it is normal to try and look ‘healthy’ after looking like your dying during a flare. A good head of hair is a strong visual marker of health. Nobody in my upline is bald and I seem to have my fathers hair and at 72 he is very thin and receded in front but not bald.
