Hair Loss Not The End Of The World

Hair Loss,​ Not the​ End of​ the​ World
So your losing your hair? Feels like its the​ end of​ the​ world does it? Well Im here to​ give you​ some good news and​ some bad news . ​
we​ will start with the​ bad first and​ that is​ unfortunately hair loss isnt the​ only annoying change that goes with breaking into the​ golden years . ​
Other changes include erectile dysfunction,​ swelling prostates,​ urinary symptoms that go with large prostates,​ decreasing time in​ stage 4 sleep,​ and​ the​ list goes on​ and​ on​ . ​
the​ way I ​ see it​ going bald is​ the​ least of​ your concerns . ​

Ok so the​ good news is​ that in​ todays age of​ pharmacy,​ there are several great options to​ solve many of​ the​ above mentioned problems,​ including hair loss . ​
So you​ Don't have to​ just accept your genetically determined fate . ​
Not only are there good pharmalogical options but the​ semi surgical options of​ hair implants are always improving . ​

So what causes hair loss otherwise known as​ male pattern baldness? Well it​ is​ in​ the​ genes as​ mentioned above . ​
the​ rumor is​ that it​ runs through the​ maternal line . ​
So if​ your moms dad is​ bald than youd better start getting ready . ​
That isnt the​ whole story though . ​
it​ turns out that there is​ an​ enzyme that changes testosterone to​ dihyroxytestosterone or​ DHT . ​
DHT which is​ produced in​ greater amounts and​ for​ which some are more sensitive to​ acts in​ many different ways including the​ root of​ the​ hair and​ actually acts as​ a​ toxin to​ the​ hair permanently ending the​ ability of​ the​ hair producing proginator cells to​ continue growing hair . ​

One of​ the​ best treatments is​ a​ ​Drug​ called finasteride or​ propecia which inhibits the​ enzyme,​ alpha 1 reductase,​ that catalyzes the​ reduction of​ testosterone to​ DHT . ​
if​ be​gun​ early enough it​ can prevent or​ signigicantly slow hair loss . ​
This ​Drug​ has been shown to​ be wonderfully efficacious at​ relatively low doses,​ which limits the​ side effects to​ a​ tolerable minimum . ​
One problem with the​ ​Drug​ that has recently been made much of​ in​ the​ media is​ the​ olympic ban on​ propecia . ​
it​ turns out that it​ can and​ has been used as​ a​ coverup for​ anabolic steroid performance enhancing ​Drug​s . ​
So a​ significant issue that fortunately effects only a​ very small minority of​ balding men . ​

As mentioned there is​ also the​ implant option which for​ a​ while seemed like it​ made you​ look worse than just having no hair . ​
the​ corn rows werent what most guys were going for​ and​ were any thing but natural . ​
Now however you​ really have a​ hard time noticing the​ difference unless you​ are around a​ guy and​ all of​ a​ sudden they have a​ head of​ hair that didnt use to​ be there . ​
So like I ​ said,​ compared to​ the​ other problems that will eventually crop up,​ hair loss is​ tame . ​
But lest we​ suffer in​ the​ looks department fortunately there are good options to​ stem the​ disease . ​
