Pretty confused need some clarity...
I am 21 and started thinning at the front of my head when I turned 19. So far been using Nizrol shampoo nearly every day and it has maintained it at the level it was when it got thinner, although it may have become slightly thinner recently, not sure.
The thing is my father and his father had full sets of hair until 48 then went rapidly bald, same as one uncle and my other uncle actually still has his full head of hair and does not look like he will be loosing it. My Mothers father had a full set of hair until he died at 70. At the same time I am extremely hairy whereas my dad and his dad is pretty much hairless and my mums dad was hairless.
So all the clues are pointing to high DHT right? Well wrong. I got my levels checked out and they were:
0.491 nmol/L (0.323 - 1.637)
As you can see their near the borderline reference range level for low DHT. it just does not make much sense to me ie thinning very early compared to my family and the fact I'm very hairy lol. Can anyone shed some light?
