Like testosterone, Dihydrotestosterone is an androgen. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is actually created from testosterone combining with a common enzyme (5a-reductase enzyme) in your body. As young as being a fetus in your mothers womb DHT is very potent and crucial to development of males.
However once you get older DHT can cause problems in men like hair loss. High DHT levels in male patients tend to be the leading cause of hair loss due to DHT attaching its self to the hair follicle and for lack of a bette word “strangling” the follicle slowly until it thins out the hair and the follicle closes completely not allowing anymore hair growth. All the while increasing hair growth throughout the body like chest, arms, back.
This is what causes the hair loss - nutrients are unable to reach your hair follicles, and the hairs will slowly begin to weaken and die. The longer you wait to treat your Dihydrotestosterone related hair loss, the more likely it is that this hair loss becomes a permanent problem. In addition to causing hair loss, Dihydrotestosterone has also been linked to other health problems like prostate cancer.
