View Full Version : Testosterone and hair loss

So, I have been on fin now for 4 months and so far, so good I think. I just got a testosterone test and my free levels were 748. Still within the normal range, but a bit high I think. No base line reference point. I have a few questions for you veterans out there.

- while on fin, should there be no correlation between this and DHT levels, given that you are blocking the enzyme responsible for the conversion? or should you still be concerned?

- I also am attempting to get a DHT test, but the lab I go to seems very confused about how to order this, haha... Have any of you gotten one? if so, how did you interpret results? if you have high serum DHT after a while on fin, do you just quit?

Dude, testing dht is like a sin or something I swear. I was wondering, and maybe you could clear this up James, when you use fin and suppress type 2 does type 1 compensate and show normal dht levels in bloodwork? As far as I know there isn't any way to test type 1 and 2. Anyway, keep this updated! I was supposed to get blood work Monday, but it got rescheduled for Saturday. I'll let you know what mine is after 1year and 9months. Should be interesting seeing as I lost more hair and had that scalp pain with this.

are you getting your DHT levels tested? I don't know if the other type of 5-AR compensates at all, or becomes over produced... I don't think so?? Based on all the studies of fin, the final result was a pretty drastic drop in serum DHT. This is why a lot of people have faith in it and why it works for a large percentage of people. I know DUT suppresses both enzymes and that is why the serum DHT is reduced by like 95%. If you get it tested let us know and I will do the same! I hope you soon figure out all the bullshit you're going through. I know first hand man, it's the most frustrating depressing thing that's ever happened to me.
