    Question Finasteride and high testosterone levels

    Hello fellow norwood bros.
    I'm a long time lurker on these forums. Probably 8 years or so.
    My hair loss has been thankfully rather slow. I'm a steady NW3 atm I would say.
    Basically I've come to the point where I've given up on the "natural remedy" route and actually want to tackle my issue for real. I picked up my first pack of fin 1mg from the pharmacy earlier today.
    Before I start the treatment I had one final concern I wanted to check with you guys.
    In late august last year I went and did some blood work. Solid results except on one point, testosterone. It was high. By European standards: pretty much roid-level. By American, absolute maximum.
    32 nmol/L or roughly 922 ng/dL.
    My concern is as I start to surpress the 5AR-ii enzyme that will result in the testo going even higher from not converting into DHT. As a result to that the body might start to overproduce estrogen to counter that elevation.
    I'm not an MD of any kind so that's why I wanted to discuss this concern with you guys before I jump on the fin.
    Maybe there's someone in the same boat as me that had/has a successful run.

    As of family history none other than my father has suffered from hair loss. He started receding in his early 60's. Grandparents, uncle etc. has had, or has a full head of hair their whole life. As do my brother.
    I have been diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis from three different dermatologists. This is most definitely linked to the hair loss. Hopefully this itch goes away as I start the treatment.

    PS. Sorry if me dropping my testo-levels came of as a flex. Really not my intention at all. And no, I'm not on any juice.

    Best regards and thanks in advance

    The only related info I could find was this thread: https://www.baldtruthtalk.com/thread...sterone-Levels
    However, Doctor Bhatti debunks the statement that finasteride would lower DHT levels. Not addressing the case in which elevated levels of testosterone could be a problem.
    Any feedback would be much appreciated.
    PS. I have messaged Dr. Bhatti and will fill you in on his answer.

    Some followup to this. Dr. Bhatti has assured me that a man of my body type (lean) should not have to worry.
    The chances of "puffy breasts" are remote.

    Hope this brings some relief to anyone out there.
    Take care and best of luck!
