What is Male Pattern Baldness?
People inherit the male pattern baldness trait from both maternal and paternal sides. The baldness trait is attributed to ultra-sensitivity of the hair follicles on the top of the head to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The mode of inheritance can skip through generations. For example, you and your grandfather may be bald while your father is not. The baldness trait is an indicator that somebody in the family can also lose their hair. Other variables such as the degree of baldness between family members and the onset of baldness can also occur. However, if you start losing hair at an early age (early 20’s), you are very likely to go balder than people who start losing their hair at a latter age. Thus, it is recommended that hair treatment, specifically hair transplant, be initiated as soon as you start manifesting signs of hair loss.
There are two sources of testosterone in our body, the testis and the adrenal gland. Testosterone is produce by specialized cells in the testis called leydig cells. Leydig cells produce testosterone, which is responsible for the development of internal male reproductive structures. Testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone, popularly known as DHT, by an enzyme called 5 alpha reductase in the peripheral tissues. It is the DHT that is responsible for the development of male external genital structures and secondary male characteristics such as growing a beard, chest hair, and is also the major cause of male pattern baldness.
