Hi doctor Rassman, I just read the update on the new pdg2 thing for hairloss. I emailed you the article yesturday by the way. I just want to know soemthing, what about DHT? does this mean DHT is not the cause and we don’t have to take propecia anymore? I would really appreciata a reply, becuase I have no clue on this.
There is no other identified effective replacement drug yet available, so it would be advisable to stay on your doctor’s prescribed finasteride. Of course, talk to your doctor about stopping or changing any prescription medication if you really are concerned.
We’re all still learning about this new PGD2 research, so I can’t comment further on it. I know everyone is excited about it, but we need to wait and see beyond these initial reports what the reality is.
