hey, doc. I have asked you guys a question about testosterone and hair loss, and you mentioned how testosterone does not cause hairloss by itself, and it only DHT.
I went to see an endocrinologist today and he said “everyone experiences temple recession(different from mpb), and that temple recession is caused by high testosterone, not DHT.” He also said that propecia is a good drug for hairloss but its basically a 50/50 risk when taking it. either it will work and stop hairloss, or destroy the hairline, but keep the crown. he was pretty confident with his statement. I asked if there is scientific proof, he said its common sense. not sure whether to take his theory with a grain of salt or its true.
what do you think doctor rassman? do you agree with him or disagree? your opinion on this is very important to me, and probably to others
This is not a place to get a second opinion and I do not like to second guess other doctors when I have not even examined the patient (you) myself.
That being said, Propecia does not “destroy” hairlines, and the percentage is better than 50/50 that you will see benefits. I cannot find a source that states temple hair loss is caused by high testosterone, so I’m not sure where your endocrinologist got that information.
