Male Pattern Hair Loss and Treatment With Generic Propecia
Male pattern hair loss is the most common hair loss pattern in the world. It occurs both in males and females, though females rarely undergo the more brutal and humiliating final phases of MPH. Usually, women only suffer from receding hairlines and generalized thinning. Androgenic alopecia is one type of pattern thinning that affects a large segment of the population. While figures vary from country to country it is estimated that in the United States, more than 95% of all balding men are affected by AN. Men who really have the genetic predisposition to develop androgenic alopecia will notice that as they go through their twenties, their hairline will already begin to suffer. Characteristically, the hairline will begin to ‘creep’ backward, as hair falls successively from the front. Some men on the other hand, would begin to lose their hair from the very top portion of the skull, slowly spreading outward..
The cause of this condition is well known even if a complete remedy has not been found. Both men and women have a hormone called testosterone. It is considered the male hormone even though both sexes posses it in varying concentrations. When a man is suffering from pattern baldness he develops an enzyme called 5alpha-reductase. This enzyme in turn will convert some portion of the testosterone into a metabolite known as DHT or dihydrotestosterone. This DHT is the real culprit when it comes to the loss of hair. The hair follicles located on the top of the head seem to be overly susceptible to bonding by the DHT. There are receptors on the follicle that match perfectly with the DHT. Once bonded, it forces the hair follicle to slowly stop producing hair shaft material. This material, known as keratin, is actually what you see when you look at the hair on your head. As the follicle becomes weaker and weaker the hair shaft continues to shrink until it is no longer capable of supporting itself and it breaks off or falls out.
The treatment of male pattern hair loss is done with generic propecia which is chemically composed of finasteride. It is a % alpha reductase inhibitor type of drug which is also used in treatments for bph and also for androgenetic alopecia. Finasteride counters hair loss by chemically preventing the metabolism of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) within the body. It achieves this by targeting and inhibiting type II 5-alpha-reductase, one of two types of an enzyme able to facilitate such a conversion. By interfering with this process finasteride greatly reduces the amount of DHT present in, among other tissue in the body, the scalp. Thus generic propecia helps to reduce the hair loss in men. It has been proved helpful in the treatments for bph. On the downside, possible side effects reported by a small proportion of men using generic propecia (finasteride) during trials have included abdominal pain, back pain, decreased libido and volume of ejaculate, impotence, dizziness, rash, swelling of the lips and face, breast tenderness and testicular pain. Problems such as these cleared up after ceasing the treatment.
