Are native Americans immune to DUPA like they are Male Pattern
seeing as full native Americans are immune to typical male pattern
baldness would this also apply to the other hair loss type ‘DUPA’ and
if so/not could this help us narrow down the list of possible causes
at the genetic level?
Not all Native Americans are immune to male pattern balding. Only a certain minority tribes, those whose ancestors came to North America over the Alaskan Bridge, appear not to have male pattern balding. Many Native Americans came to North America from the south and these men do have genetic balding. DUPA – Diffuse Un-Pattern Alopecia is not related to Male Pattern Balding (MPB) so I do not know how that would fit in to the Native American traits on balding. I think you are trying to find a common denominator but the cause and relationship of two separate type of balding does not fit.
The cause of male pattern balding is genetic.
