    It's a matter of perception. Some will say dutasteride should only be taken by 50-60+ for those with enlarged prostates. Others go on the medication at 18 because of hardcore pre-mature baldness, and finasteride isn't enough. If i remember correctly, there's a guy on here that started dutasteride at 18, regrew his temples and has been stable ever since. He just reported back after a lot of years of inactivity because he didn't think about hairloss anymore. He is now 27. Can't remember his username though..

    You are diffuse thinning for sure however your hairline seems to be intact. Why don't you try finasteride before Duta?

    if you where diffusing you hair line would be thin as well. I dont think you have male pattern baldness. youre thinning like a female would on your mid scalp.

    maybe a lack of vitamins, healthy diet or stress related hair loss

    NOT TRUE. A lot of diffused thinners remain a thick hairline. That's actually very common.

    "I heard people" isn't really the best grounds to make a decision either for or against. It makes sense to first try finasteride and minoxidil, and evaluate later down the road if you think they aren't working.

    I think finasteride will be the most pleasant option, combined with oral minoxidil to have greater results. But 18 year olds can use dutasteride, I started much more significant treatments at that age.
