View Full Version : DHT levels and FIN

03-25-2013, 07:01 AM
Hey guys,

Im 33 years old and ive been losing my hear for the past 3 years. At first i tried only minoxidil wich worked great for me for two years, had some regrowth at temples hiding some receeding e and also some thinning. I have receeding temples and thinning in frontal area. probably NW2 now.

For the last 2 months ive added Nizoral and i think its giving me some strenght on the miniaturised hair in my temples. Also i had some itching scalp that disapeared after starting Nizoral.

But the general thinning has come to a point where i decided to start FIN(recommended by dermatologist, and i have also made my research and im pretty aware of all the things related to it)

Before starting, i made blood tests for Total Testosterone, Free Testosterone and DHT.


Tot Test: 5,51 ng/ml normal range: 1,66 - 8,77
Free Test: 14,1 pg/ml normal range: 8.00 - 27,00
DHT : 267 pg/ml normal range: 250-800

So, testosterone levels are pretty much between normal range, but DHT is bit low but still inbetween normal levels.

I consider myself having a very high libido. Have a girlfriend, can perform more than once per day, and in the times i havent girlfriend or similar, i could easily masturbate 4, 5 times a day.

So, considering my low DHT levels, i think that i just have more sensitive androgen receptors in my hair.

Question: Had anyone had same kind of DHT results and started FIN? And what happened?

Thanks a lot.

Is there anyone here who has ever made blood tests for DHT?

Nope. My bloodtests just confirmed that MPB was the cause of my hair loss. Also found out I have relatively high T.

I just started taking the pill without knowing my baseline DHT.

Prob not the response you're looking for -- sorry.
