Hi there guys.
I am posting a suggestion a good italian dermatologist gave me when dutasteride first got on the market… that’s some time ago.
I was asking him what would he think about this new drug that was supposed to reduce almost all the dht while finasteride was reducing just 2/3 of it.
I was pretty excited about it, thinking dutasteride would be the final weapon…
so he warned me that this wouldn’t be so easy because:
-DHT is responsible for hair loss of crown and middle crown hairs
-Testosterone is responsible for hair loss of hairs on the front.
I remember him signing a line from ear to ear indicating the zone of testosterone influenced hairs.
so since the reducing of all dht would increase the free testosterone he said dutasteride would probably actually worsen the front hairs while saving the hairs on the back.
This is the reason that made me leave the Idea of using dutasteride.
I was using finasteride and still am.
In sports they say :" squadra che vince non si cambia." (don’t make changes in a winning team).
so this as been my philosophy since now.
Things were going pretty good and I decided not to take the risk.
This is my first post here. I felt the urge to sign in and give my two cents in the hope someone would find this useful.
