The Link Between DHT and Hair Loss

Low T, otherwise known as low testosterone, is a serious issue for some men. Low levels result in physical side effects, for example, lessened sex drive, reproductive problems, sleep depravation, weight issues, and diminished body hair. It’s no big surprise the condition is sometimes solely blamed for hair loss.

Having too little testosterone is a problem, yet so is having an overabundance of it. Too much testosterone in men has been connected to despondency, becoming too aggressive, impulsivity, low sperm number and low immunity. What high testosterone is not connected to, regardless to what most believe is hair loss. 

Research shows male pattern baldness happens at comparative rates in men with high and low testosterone levels and that, as men age, his testosterone levels diminish; yet their danger of going bald goes up. Those who blame their male pattern baldness on high testosterone have been accusing the wrong guilty party. Actually, a hormone may, truth be told, be causing you to lose your hair. In any case, it’s not testosterone but it’s a byproduct of it called dihydrotestosterone, or DHT.

Men produce two types of DHT: serum (which moves through your blood) and tissue (which ties to your skin). Tissue DHT has been connected to male balding, however data shows that serum DHT may actually stop male pattern baldness! Consider this: The higher the centralization of scalp tissue DHT, the higher the probability of male pattern baldness. Be that as it may, the higher the convergence of face and other tissue DHT, the higher the probability of hair development! Also, as men get older their levels of testosterone go down but their levels of serum DHT remain the same.

So … Is DHT to Blame?

It’s plausible that neither high nor low testosterone is bringing on your male pattern baldness. It’s very conceivable that tissue DHT is adding to your male pattern baldness.
