While hair-loss prevention is not a highly recommended means of use for most anabolic steroid users, if you have a family history of prostate issues a regular dosing of Finasteride therapy may be in the cards. However, if you have existing prostate issues you shouldn’t be using anabolic steroids; hopefully this is understood. Nevertheless many will be so concerned with hair-loss that Finasteride will be used for this purpose and it will do a fairly decent job. Through supplementation total DHT in the body can be reduced by as much as 65% and that will be in most cases enough to stave off any hair-loss while on cycle but don’t expect to gain a massive amount of size when Finasteride is conjoined with your anabolic steroid use .
Hi Will! I have been facing hair loss for many years and have been to numerous doctors. I went to a dermatologist last year and she recommended taking lot of tests. Based on the test, she said I might have insulin resistance and recommended Glyciphage tablet for 3 months. Do you think it’s advisable to take that tablet? She also said, although I don’t have PCOS explicitly (took a test for that too and I don’t have PCOS) I may have a slightly higher level of testosterone. Any help and suggestion on what to do will highly help, thanks a lot in advance.
From 2005 to 2007 Curis and Procter & Gamble collaborated on developing a topical hedgehog agonist for hair loss; the agent did not meet safety standards, and the program was terminated.   In 2008 researchers at the University of Bonn announced they have found the genetic basis of two distinct forms of inherited hair loss. They found the gene P2RY5 causes a rare, inherited form of hair loss called hypotrichosis simplex. It is the first receptor in humans known to play a role in hair growth.    Researchers found that disruption of the gene SOX21 in mice caused cyclical hair loss. Research has suggested SOX21 as a master regulator of hair shaft cuticle differentiation, with its disruption causing cyclical alopecia in mice models.  Deletion of SOX21 dramatically affects hair lipids.
