    Whatevr's Success Story - With Timeline

    Nice finasteride result. He stopped his finasteride literally... 2 months ago. He was on it for over ayear. It takes the enzyme time to recover -- 2 months span, you'd still retain your gains from the 5aRI. Lets see his hair in 6 months to a year.

    Topical Cetirizine more effective twice a day?

    I thought the PTGDS upregulation in Androgenetic Alopecia was NOT due to mast cell degranulation, but we really don't know the full role of the mast cells in this pathology. I was going back over the original Translational Medicine paper, and they DID note increased mast cell proliferation. They write...
