    not my DHT levels as it wasn't free at the time, these were the ones I got done a few months ago.
    Serum testerone is 30.1 nmol
    SHBG 57.4 nmol (10-57 normal in males)
    both very high

    estrogen serum - 139 nmol (95-225)

    DHT is something which triggers the hair loss but after that testosterone too can cause hair thinning.

    it didn't work for me and I'm pretty sure it feminized me to a certain extent (granted I was applying it after taking a hot shower but still..)

    where do you get your topical finasteride? compounding pharmacy?

    Any androgen agonist will cause people with sensitive follicles to lose hair. So yes testosterone negatively impacts hair but dht is the main culprit because (dont quote me on the number) its around 5x more potent than testosterone and is found in the skin and around hair follicles.

    Look into topical receptor antagonists(blocks the androgen receptor) like cb0301 and ru58841.

    @Jim lahey I think I should skip Ru and go on CB since Cb looks like its going to be FDA approved soon? Im not sure how many people have had success with CB? Ru will never be FDA approved tho ive seen some people have success. I think a Topical AA is 100% important for this hairloss battle so I want to add something.

    I'm also someone whose follicles are testosterone sensitive and Dutasteride definitely raises free testosterone. You will want to use RU or CB daily to counter this problem. Some people are fine with just finasteride/dutasteride, others are less lucky and experience (too many) side-effects or are testosterone sensitive and keep losing hair.

    Gyno can be fixed with a surgery.
    A full blown bald head cannot be fixed with a hair trandplant.

    Its an easy choice.

    @StevenGerrard What's your experience taking dutasteride and finasteride at the same time?

    Sorry, my bad. I used to believe that fina/duta are not considered as anti-androgen.

    This picture is hilarious. Kudos if it's OC. CB is not known to have great results. I have low T, and get sides whenever I try basically anything. Hair loss has gotten bad enough though, that I'm about to try TRT and then supplement in RU + finasteride, or maybe even RU + dutasteride.

    Does anyone know if dutasteride and finasteride increase testosterone equally, or does one increase it more than the other?
