Thank you for answering my question regarding the liver’s function in the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Might this prove a new avenue of therapy? In your opinion, if there are
cholesterol-lowering drugs that reduce the amount of cholesterol that the liver produces, could the same not be done for DHT? Also, do you think there could be an immunization against DHT, perhaps triggering an immune response against DHT in the body. I know I am hypothesizing a new approach to immunotherapy, but I figure…what the hey? Thanks, as allways.
I suppose anything is possible, but finasteride (Propecia/Proscar) is a very effective medication that blocks DHT production for the treatment of androgenic hair loss. You can conceive many creative ways to block DHT, but why would you want to when you already have a proven and safe medication such a Propecia. What we really need is more research into finding other non-DHT related drugs that can stop / prevent / or even reverse androgenic hair loss (AGA) or male pattern balding (MPB). In other words, blocking DHT is not the end all, cure all.
