So According to statistics 4 out of 7 people do have the MPB Gene. I asked this in TBT forums but people dont know much other than DHT = hairloss.
A bit of my family history:
father nw 3 age 50 - started balding according to him at 34 (bull **** I think)...last time i saw him he was 47 with a norwood 2...never used a treatment.
Mother - no mpb issues at all from mothers sides - all uncles hairy monkeys including 80 year old grandfather that looks like ALF.
Paternal grandfather - died in his 60s with a full crazy john travolta head of hair...all his brothers looked like lions no joke.
So the MPB gene comes from my paternal grandmother who had john travolta hair (she combed it that way) but her brother was bald...he started balding LATE 40s though...norwood 5 at 80.
I started balding at 22 im approaching to nw 3, definitely balding cuz I shed minituarized hair.
My questions is what did I do to trigger this gene so young? was it 'bating? sports? stress? nutrition? I always thought if I was to bald it was going to be mid 30s due to my dads hair "issues" but why now?
This sucks, somebody please kill me. One thing is losing your hair, another one is being the first balding young guy in both sides of your family .
Did you guys started balding same age as your father, uncle, grandpas? is it as agressive? Please let me know your family background maybe i can make some conclusions.
