I am 61 years old and I am experiencing balding on the top of my head and thinning of hair on the rest of my head. I have developed a mustache and beard. I have found that my testosterone level in 486. Would this cause my hair loss?
Normal total testosterone levels are as follows:
- Men — 500 to 1000 ng/dL (nanograms per deciliter)
- Women — 50 to 100 ng/dL
I would look to your doctor to find out why your testosterone is so high. There are many potential medical reasons for this. High testosterone can cause hair loss in women and possibly even the appearance of a beard.
