    @genetically_cursed: Any updates? Your case has some similarities with mine.
    It's not over, but it's the beginning of the end. And you being aware of it makes the whole process more excruciating.Awareness is suffering.

    If by “updates” you mean whining, neurosis and hypochondria, yes he’s done lots of that.

    First few pages are poison.

    Unfortunately he said he had sides. Treatments should be started at NW1.5, anything past that and you are already late.

    @genetically_cursed I can tell you're a handsome guy even without seeing your eye area. You have that pretty boy phenotype, balding is gonna absolutely destroy your looks if it happens.
    Anyway, look up Danny Roddy on Youtube and follow his protocol. I've been doing it and seeing regrowth at the temples.

    In principle, it's about getting to an optimal hormonal environment, defined by:
    • peak thyroid function (TSH around 1)
    • high testosterone, moderate DHT, high dopamine
    • low cortisol, adrenaline, prolactin, serotonin
    This can be achieved through diet, lifestyle and supplementation. Blood tests needed too to know what you need to improve.

    Diet:
    • he promots Ray Peat principles
    • high carb (high fruits and sugars, but low in grains), moderate protein, low to moderate fat (only saturated fats)
    Lifestyle
    • minimize stress as much as possible in every possible way
    • minimal cardio (too much) stressful on the body; walking / hiking is best
    • weights lifting, but careful not to overtrain and not to suppress testosterone
    • hair massages, ACV rinsing
    Supplements: these vary on a personal basis, according to what everyone might need the most. I take the following:
    • daily Aspirin
    • thyroid hormone (endo prescribed)
    • Vitamin D3, E, K2
    • Magnesium Glycinate
    • Zinc
    My shedding has 95% ceased in the past 3-4 months, and lately been seeing baby hairs around the temples. So, I'm optimistic.

    Aspirin is a PGD2 inhibitor if I recall correctly. I heard some guys in the past saying it helped with their hairloss.

    Diet and lifestyle definitely plays a huge part in male pattern baldness (or at least hair quality) and people don't want to hear it. I've been eating like sh*t during my summer vacation and my shedding increased a huge ton whereas it definitely became much less after starting finasteride in April. I'm going back now and hopefully things will change.

    Clearly must be the food. There's no evidence for this claim apart from your anecdotes and if you wanna hear mine I have noticed that the people with the worst junkfood diets often have the best hair.

    Exactly, predisposition is everything, or at least so important compared to all other factors that they pale in comparison.

    It helps my hair indeed. So what can I take/use to mimic the effects of it without the increased chance of bleeding?
