I thought since the steroids (cortisones) taken for colitis of the intestine is much different than anabolic steroids, that athletes take for strength it would not exacerbate or fasten MPB if someone is genetically predisposed to it. Doesn’t the 2 steroids vary significantly in terms of the ingredients that make up the steroid?
Also you referred to MPB gene, i thought there are multiple genes and just 1, can you correct this for me?
All of the steroids are related in action, somewhat different in particular strengths and weaknesses, so they do vary. There is clearly overlap and there is no doubt that the steroids used for colitis will impact genetic hair loss. That is my point.
Yes, there are more than one gene that contribute to hair loss. Some estimates are above 100.
