I have been taking propecia for about 7 years. Am now 36 years old and I have a full head of hair. But now, I have stopped due to high SGOT reading of my liver. During the course of the 7 years, I have tolerated the drug very well but now, I just want to know whether I am genetically predisposed to balding or not before I take up the drug again.
I had a check with a dermatologist, she had checked my hair and told me to stop taking the drug as my hair was ok. Are there tell tale signs for me to watch out for me to decide to take up propecia again or not?
You can take the genetic test to find out if you have the gene for hair loss, which if negative will tell you that you do not have the hair loss potential problem. If you are positive for the gene, it means that you might get hair loss. Then you and your doctor can decide. I am not familiar with an association between Propecia and liver disease as a cause and effect (see Did Propecia Effect My Liver?).
