I keep seeing weird articles liek this nad I wanna know



U.K. participants were 55,000 men (mean age, 70) who received ≥2 prescriptions for dutasteride, finasteride, or tamsulosin. After a mean 5.2-year follow-up, 2100 men had developed type 2 diabetes. Adjusted for multiple variables, risk for type 2 diabetes was 32% and 26% higher in the dutasteride and finasteride groups, respectively, than in the tamsulosin group. Similar results were obtained for the Taiwan cohort and in propensity score–matched analyses.

It’s for 5mg though which is extremely high dose.

Can you find a study with 1mg daily or EOD or even lower doses than that? I take 0.5mg every other day. Wonder what the risk factors with that.

Regardless, this outlines why finasteride isn’t a long term solution and getting a hair transplant etc should be eventually sought.

isnt being on finasteride for years upon years extremely dangerous tho for some reason. people tell me like haircafe that stopping dht doesn't relaly do much, it's an unnecessary hormone.

so if I'm taking only maybe 1mg a day, and nothing more, then that isn't the cause of my diabetes most liekyl if I were having signs.

Bro, health is more important than hair. If you are having signs of diabetes, fick finasteride and get treatment before you develop full blown diabetes.

Is that all you’ve done for your hair? Any transplants or just finasteride

Gonna have a transplant soon. I unfortunately started finasteride way too late, now on it just so I don’t become a shiny bald NW7 and also so I can use hair fibers.

Yea I’ve been on it for about 8 years. Was taking 1mg everyday but I recently cut it down to eod because I’m worrried of long term effects on hormones and such. But could just be a bag stigma not sure. Are you in the USA? Who will be doing your transplant.

You’re maintaining with 1mg EOD?
I recently switched to EOD from every day but I’m doing 1.25 EOD at the moment.
dude I was taking 1.25 every single day and sometimes accidentally twice out of depression. Then I started feeling issues
