Wow my hair loss has definitely started up again. I am only shedding at the hairline/temples. This has to be MPB. Do you guys have the same pattern?
My hair is thinning at the temples, the part line and the vertex. I believe someone here had the theory that it kick starts MPB. I have read that B5 messes with Testosterone levels and probably even increases them. How would it kick start MPB though? If it's MPB then I have no choice but to go on Finasteride.
I am currently a Norwood 2 on the scale and 18 but I highly doubt the hair loss will stop unless I take Finasteride.
If B5 really raises Free Testosterone and thus kick starts MPB it would explain how some people do not get hair loss while taking B5 and some do. Those wo do not possess the MPB gene will not shed hair.
What I do not understand though, if B5 is a water soluble vitamin, then how does the hair loss continue? Shouldn't the effect on testosterone stop once the B5 leaves your system?
I just noticed that the B Complex I take contains 18mg of B5. Should I stop taking it? There may be a correlation in shedding and me taking the B complex. Ill report back on that
Found this thread, some guys there postulated that they found a care, have a read: http://www.acnearchives.com/4226
2g/day Vitamin C
Also msm if you want, 1-3g/day
Wrote an email to Artlan from that forum and just got a reply now. He never managed to reverse his hair loss, so thats not a plus for the 2g/day Lysine, 2g/dayVitamin C.
