Can Creatine and DHEA Speeds Up Hair Loss?
Ok, I have a serious question. I am an athlete who works very hard on my conditioning. In order to compete at the level that I compete at we all have to supplement our diets. I have noticed that in the past couple of years since I upped my supplementation with Creatine and DHEA I have lost much more hair. Can this be making my hair loss speed up?

With this said, Propecia can counter these effects in some individuals.

I am not a physician. My opinions and knowledge concerning hair loss and its treatment are based on extensive research and reporting on the subject as a consumer advocate and hair loss educator. My views and comments on the subject should not be taken as medical advice. Always seek the advice of a medical professional when considering medical and surgical treatment.
Thanks Spencer! I knew something was up. There are days I wish I never started taking that stuff, but I do notice that it gives me a slight edge with my workouts and training.
