Again, thank you for this informative website. It was in the news recently about having a genetic test done to see if one has the balding genes and what to expect. www.hairdx.com is the website for the company. I have two questions regarding this.
How accurate do you suppose this test is in regards to future hair loss and the likelihood of it occurring on someone who has this exam done?
Secondly, what value if any would you see in having such an exam done?
Thank you for your time as always!
I am having a problem with the use of this test, but I am not against it if someone wants it. Based upon the test alone, I would not start treatment for hair loss, but when hair loss starts, I would commence treatment in men ASAP. So the test will not drive me to do anything. In terms of accuracy, I suspect it does what it says it does accurately. The issue is what does it mean and what do we do about the test results when there is no balding present?
