WHAT IS ANDROGENETIC ALOPECIA?

Learn more about it.

The name of the condition comes from two words – “androgen” and “genetics”, which are the two main causative factors. ‘Androgen’ refers to male hormones, namely testosterone, that normally circulate in the bloodstream.

These male hormones are broken down by enzymes at various sites in the body, including the hair follicles on the scalp. One of the breakdown products is known as di-hydro testosterone or DHT. Over time, DHT damages susceptible hair follicles.The susceptible hair follicles in men tend to be located on the front of the scalp, leaving the hair follicles on the back of the head less susceptible to damage by DHT.

At Regainx , one way we aim to help treat male hair loss is by reducing the conversion of testosterone to DHT.‘Genetics’ refers to an inherited hair loss trait from either the paternal or maternal (or both) side of the ancestral tree. There are many genes that have been associated with male hair loss and more are being researched on.

If you have a strong family history of male hair loss, your risk of developing the condition is higher. However, there is no clear indication whether your hair loss will start at the same time as your relatives, progress at a rate similar to your family member or progress to a stage that your father or grandfather is at. There is currently no direct gene therapy to treat male hair loss.
