So I've been re-reading this whole thread from start to finish now, and as it is now it seems pretty hard to get an overview over regimens that have actually been succesful. Itsoveryes seems to have good news with the RU and ketoconazole.
Could anyone else who seem to have found a succesful regimen recap/update, so we have the latest and best info collected.
For me personally nothing has worked so far, I still have diffuse shedding all over the scalp, and all my bloodtests have been within the normal range as I have previously posted.
Since we believe it is MPB you would treat it with what's called the big 3. That is an internal DHT blocker such as fin/avodart (stronger), rogaine, and a shampoo containing keto. RU is an alternative DHT blocker which is supposedly safer due to it blocking DHT only at the scalp, not systemically. Remember there is no cure, all this will slow down the hair loss until hopefully a real cure is developed.
I personally have focused on other areas in my life. Gained ten pounds of muscle, put more stye in my wardrobe, great haircut can make it look like you have zero loss.
Agreed. It clearly started Male Pattern Baldness. It's what every dermatologist labeled my hair loss and I've been to 5 in the past 3 years. In addition, my scalp biopsy came back conclusive MPB.
I am going to try to get RU. Just difficult since you order from China...
Order RU there via western union. It's legit, where I got mine.
Order KB there, it's the vehicle to deliver the RU into the hair follicle. Never oder pre made it degrades.
Order a small bottle with dropper on amazon to mix the solution. It's very easy.
DON'T go higher than a 4% solution, the KB can only carry that much solution at one time.
Complete RU guide
Hey dude how's it going? Couple questions for ya while taking the RU did you get and side effects like libido loss or anything? Also completely off topic what supplements did ya use to help gain 10 pounds?
No side effects from RU, none. I used n-large 2, but it will break you out f you can't handle milk. Now i use egg protein+maltodextrin and peanut butter
What was your RU to KB ratio?
And which KB did you order? For 1,2, or 5% RU?
I order RU 5%. I forget the ratio honestly, I followed the guide I linked too. It works out to 4% of the solution
Hello guys. I'm 19 years old. Ive been taking Vitamin B5 10g/day for almost a year, maybe even more. It was from 17-18 years old I think, I cant really remember.
Im pretty sure I had a long break this last summer but this autumn I started to break out again and bought some more vitamin b5, didnt help at all, I think the dose I was taking now was 5G/day, and now ive have not been taking vitamin b5 for atleast 3-4 months.
Well the problem is, I started shedding hair 4 months ago. I think my hairlines have recedeed a little bit, but I lose hair all over my head. I remember when I played football and I grabbed the hair in my neck, 3-5 small hairs could follow.
I also have dandruff, itchy scalp, Ive had it for like 3 months now, it doesnt get better. I always thought I lost hair because of that, but now when I saw this thread yesterday and read all of it, it must be because of the vitamin B5. And I literally cried, yes first time I cried since my grandmother died 5 years ago, I dont know what to do if I'm gonna lose my hair because of this.
I still live with my parents, I havent told them about this. Ive just talked with them about my problems with scalp and ive been to the doctor, they think its seborrhoeic dermatitis.
For the last month, I also experienced strong fatigue and my eyes are tired all the time, its like its hurting my eyes when I look at movies or playing games that requires much focusing.
Ive seen you guys talking about adrenal fatigue, thyroid and mpb. I want you to help me now, I'm gonna talk to my parents about this and I wanna know what test I should get at my doctor, to see if everything is right in my body. So please, name the most important tests about this problem and I will try get them done and share my results with the rest of you!
Please do share your results. I responded to your email.
For energy try this. I've taken it before.
Drinking hs been mentioned in this thread. Interesting enough Fin which helps hair, reduces the desire to drink.
Also found this:
Alcohol-related hair loss can be attributed to the depletion of the body’s supplies of iron and zinc. Zinc is known to play a major role in hair health, and is also used by the body in the absorption of a host of other nutrients needed for normal hair production. Zinc isn’t stored within the body and needs to be consumed on a daily basis. Alcohol can prevent zinc from being absorbed properly, so leading to a deficiency and potential hair loss.
Iron deficiency meanwhile, in women particularly, has been shown in numerous studies to be a contributing factor in hair loss conditions such as Telogen Effluvium. A 1998 study by researchers at Oregon University found that out of 153 women with Telogen Effluvium taking part, iron deficiency was the primary cause of female hair loss in 72 percent of cases.
(check iron levels via blood work if you drink a lot? Iron usually isn't tested in men since we don't have menstrual cycles)
As well as these two key minerals, alcohol abuse depletes many other nutrients associated with cell production, growth and hormone regulation, including vitamin A, vitamin B12 and calcium. The net effect is that overall health of hair will suffer, and new hair production may slow down and even cease, as with Telogen Effluvium.
