You’re a man, and your fuel is your testosterone. On days when your testosterone levels are higher than usual, you feel like superman, capable of taking on anything that comes your way. And on days when your testosterone levels are low, you feel lethargic, apathetic, and weak. So naturally, producing more testosterone seems like a way to better enjoy life.

One of the fastest growing industries in the medical field is the treatment of low testosterone, commonly known as “Low T”. Many men in their 40s and 50s are being injected with synthetic testosterone to treat their below-average levels of the hormone in their body.

But there is an aesthetic concern associated with too much testosterone in males: hair loss. Hair loss is, after all, caused by specific follicles’ sensitivity to a testosterone derivative called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is converted from testosterone by an enzyme called 5 alpha reductase in the peripheral tissues. An increase in testosterone, whether through extreme exercise and diet or through synthetic injections, can lead to more DHT, ultimately speeding up the hair loss process.

Men who see an increase in testosterone have two options to combat hair loss:

1.       They can reduce the life changes they have made, whether natural or synthetic, that are causing their bodies to increase testosterone levels. They might return the low energy, but at least they won’t continue accelerating their hair loss.

2.       They can keep their energy and testosterone levels higher and combat the inevitable loss with hair transplant surgery, such as those done at New England Center for Hair Restoration. Using a man’s own natural hair, NE Hair can restore the hair of men who begin to bald due to an increases in their testosterone levels. And because the follicles that are transplanted are resistant to DHT, the results last a lifetime.
