Hormone Replacement and Hair Loss

Managing hair loss during testosterone replacement Presented at the 2012 20th Annual World Congress on Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine by hair loss expert Dr. Alan J. Bauman, this lecture focused on one of the possible side effects of androgen (testosterone) replacement therapy: Hair Loss. For those men who are prone to hereditary male pattern hair loss, androgen replacement with testosterone may accelerate the process of hereditary hair thinning and baldness.

Mechanisms of action, medical evaluations, HairCheck hair growth tracking and treatments such as oral medications like finasteride and dutasteride, topical treatments like minoxidil 82M, laser therapy with LaserCap, hair transplantation in addition to nutritional supplementation are all part of the medical management of androgenetic alopecia (hereditary male pattern baldness). Anti-aging physicians should discuss the possibility of hair loss side-effects from androgen replacement with their male patients to whom they might prescribe testosterone.
