Androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, is the premature loss of hair on the scalp or other parts of the body caused by an over-production of androgens (male hormones). Androgen, a chemical compound that is present in the body, plays many important roles in the body. It is essential in the formation and maintenance of healthy cells, plays a vital role in many immune functions and performs many necessary jobs in the body.
The production of testosterone in men and other species is controlled by a variety of enzymes. Testosterone production can be stimulated by certain compounds called androgen precursors. Androgens are converted into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a compound that accumulates over the body and causes significant hair loss in men.
Androgenetic baldness can occur at any point in life, though it becomes more common as people get older. Androgenetic alopecia can affect men of all ages, though it is more common in men who are older. Androgenetic baldness can be caused by hormonal imbalances, disease, genetics and medication, and it has been found that testosterone therapy Dallas, such as testosterone injections, have had very limited success in correcting these causes of androgenetic alopecia. Androgenetic baldness occurs when testosterone levels drop below the normal level.
One of the most effective treatments of hypo gonadal men is testosterone gel. This gel is applied to the scalp and is designed to prevent testosterone from being washed out of the hair follicles.
By preventing testosterone from leaving the scalp, the gel can potentially prevent hair loss. Although this treatment has shown promising results in some patients, there are still no cure for testosterone deficiencies and this treatment is not approved by the FDA. It is important to note that testosterone gels can be very messy and need to be applied carefully to avoid irritating the skin.
There are also many natural products available for treating testosterone deficiencies in older men. Some of these products include vitamins, herbs, and minerals that can help older men maintain a higher level of testosterone. It is important to note that just because a product works for one man does not mean that it will work for another.
Also, a physician should examine any supplements you take to make sure that the doses are appropriate for your particular condition. While testosterone therapy improves the quality of life for hypogonadal men, they must realize that there are many options for them as well.
