“Why me?” can be a question that men may ask themselves when they first notice that they have male pattern baldness – a condition that affects two out of three men.
Androgenic Alopecia or Male pattern baldness (MPB) is the common type of hair loss that develops in most men at some stage. It usually takes 15-25 years to go bald. However, some men go bald in fewer than five years. MPB is generally characterized with the onset of receding hairline and thinning crown.
What causes male patterns baldness?
According to American Hair Loss Association, about 85% of men will have significant hair thinning by the age of 50.
Genes and hormones
More than 95% of male hair loss is due to male pattern baldness (MPB), a genetic trait. Men with male pattern baldness inherit hair follicles that are oversensitive to hormone dihydrotestosterone ( DHT).
When testosterone is converted into DHT, it shrinks the hair follicle resulting in shorter and finer hair, eventually hair growth stops altogether. The good new is the hair follicles do not die off most of the time, so hir growth may be still possible. at present, there is no known cure for male pattern baldness. Preventing hair loss is easier than replacing them once they are gone.
