View Full Version : Anyone here diagnosed with diffused unpatterned alopecia?

i'd like to make a thread of people with DUPA to share pics as reference for those of us who are unsure. There's not much info or pics out there and would be nice to post pics of people with dupa and what's its like to have it.
thank you =]

I agree that there are not enough photos of patients with DUPA. I admit that when I do a consultation and feel that the patient has DUPA and is not a good candidate for the hair transplant procedure I generally do not take any photos. I will in the future try to take and post photos of these patients with their consent and blocking out the eyes or face if patient requests.

do you think this looks like dupa?
and what is the best treatment for this, i already use minox and finasteride.
maybe dutasteride?

Hard to say from these two photos, but doesn't look like DUPA. The treatment regimen you are on should be adequate for now.

I suppose I am a 'dupa'.

Hard to say. How it your donor area? You really need to see a hair restoration physician in person before that diagnosis can be considered.
