    Though with success, how old are you? Trying to dig in the relationship of age to Finasteride effectiveness.

    There is no relationship. Look around these threads, you'll see young people failing and old people having success. I'm 33 and have been diffuse thinning for 10-11 years now, having decent success with minoxidil at 7 months now

    Get on finasteride and maybe Ru.
    Oral minoxidil is crazy dangerous.

    I am diffuse thinner in nw7 area but currently fullhead as finasteride and ru stopped the balding process.

    Slightly less and more liquid semen otherwise no sides.
    Will dose finasteride down to 0.5mg/day.

    I’ve been testing RU for a month. Still shedding a lot. Worried about gyno. May consider Finasteride at some point.

    Diffused thinner here with a little hasher diffusing in the crown area, I was on minoxidil for 1.5 years and didn't do anything, the tried a mix of RU/minoxidil for 10months which I saw no success from may have actually got worse. I'm off everything for for the past 3 months and I'm just about to bite the bullet on finesteride/minoxidil might start off with 0.25 dose and hope for the best.

    Your absolutely sure your BACK AND SIDES have gottten thinner?

    In my humble opinion, I DON'T think thats from androgens. That sounds like something
    else to me.

    They have gotten thinner but there is a pattern with more thinning and miniaturized hair in the entire top.

    Can hair existing hair miniaturize? I still have long hair, 100 hair daily fall but for the most part the long hairs are a thinning whispy mess not the normal diameter. Are these hairs already miniaturized even though they are 8 inches long? If they fall is it a guaranteed they come back velus? It’s such a weird patttern. I’m confused. It’s all still within two years. Is finasteride the only answer to give the velus quitters a chance to turn terminal.

    This all sucks. Sticking with the RU reduced dose.

    Is there any reason for this? It is peculiar to hear someone losing their side and back hair. I have grown to particularly hate these to parts of my hair ironically due to what they represent. Also I think that diffuse is better than male pattern baldness since diffuse is known to be reversible while the former is not. Still would be interested in what could be the reason? I have been doing some research and I have been linking up many hair problems to "medical drugs" and would be interested to know if this is persistent on this forum as well.

    Great question. I’m trying to draw correlation with:

    Accutane (2 rounds 15 years ago)

    Lexythyroxone (I had perfect hair until starting this drug, 1 year after I had a Telogen Effluvium and have been steady diffusing since)

    Antibiotics (Been on a different antibiotic for over 20 years for beard cysts, Solodyn in be year before losing my hair.

    What do you know about reversing diffuse?

    Thank you for your incite. This furthers my point and resolve against modern medicine. On the topic of recovery I can't say for sure. All I can say is that fasting, abstinence, and temperament can only do good for a person in need. I would look into ways to cleanse the body. The best known way is to fast, a tried and true method which has worked for a 3 millennium. G-d speed.

    Diffuse thinner for 30 years. In my early 50's now. Got worse in the last 10 years. finasteride and minoxidil have stabilized it, but no gains, just slower loss...But my hair in the last few years (since on finasteride) grows slower, is more brittle. Now I keep it about an inch in length.
    I'm thinking with diffused thinning, we have a slogan "If I could just keep what I have now, I'll be happy..."

    I tend to believe you. I've been trying for 1 week, I'm not sure but I think it's helping. We should all try and report back.

    How much falls out every day? I am losing horror film numbers of hairs everyday? I thought it would be more gradual? I have no inflammation, itch. Hair quality is worse.
