What You Need to Know About DHT and Hair Loss
Dihydrotestosterone is a hormone with powerful androgenic properties. This important hormone plays a role in puberty and helps men develop their adult male characteristics.
Dihydrotestosterone is an androgen, which means it is a hormone that triggers the development of male characteristics. The hormone is created when testosterone is converted into a new form, dihydrotestosterone. About 10% of the testosterone in the bodies of both men and women is converted into dihydrotestosterone in adults, with a much higher amount in puberty. This may be why it is so closely related to the triggering of puberty. The dihydrotestosterone hormone is much more powerful than testosterone.
How does dihydrotestosterone work?
Dihydrotestosterone initiates the start of puberty in boys. It causes the genitals to develop and can cause the growth of pubic and body hair. It also causes the prostate to grow during puberty and may work together with testosterone to begin the expression of sexual desires and behavior.
Women also have dihydrotestosterone. Some research has shown that it can lead to pubic hair growth after puberty in girls. It may also play a role in determining when puberty will start for a girl.
Problems connected with dihydrotestosterone
Sometimes both men and women can struggle with high levels of dihydrotestosterone. In men, high levels cause few identifiable changes. However, women who have high dihydrotestosterone levels may have issues with excess body and facial hair. They may also struggle with adult acne and menstruation. A dihydrotestosterone inhibitor may be able to help restore natural levels of the dihydrotestosterone hormone.
4 High DHT Symptoms You Should Know
Acne Is a Symptom of High DHT
High DHT leads to high levels of androgens, which contribute to acne in men. While it’s less common in adults, high hormone levels can increase oil production and clog pores that cause acne.
A Receding Hairline Is a Symptom of High DHT
High DHT may also lead to receding hairline. There is a strong link between androgenetic alopecia and DHT levels. Variations in the androgen receptor (AR) gene can make some people more susceptible to the effects of DHT. In males, this form of hair loss usually follows a characteristic pattern, starting with a receding hairline.
Hair Loss at the Temples and on the Crown Are Symptoms of High DHT
High DHT may lead to more hair loss on the superior portion of the scalp, otherwise known as the vertex scalp, or the crown. After hair loss at the front of the scalp, male pattern baldness usually progresses with hair loss at the temples and the crown of the head (with hair spared at the back of the head). Over time, the areas meet and there is a horseshoe pattern of hair loss around the sides and top of the head.
DHT also stimulates the growth of prostate cells, producing normal growth in adolescence but contributing to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in many older men.

I had dandruff since the beginning of the time, and unfortunately, in the past years, hair loss was added to it, and the front part of my head was out of hair. After treatment, dandruff and hair loss were wholly gone, and hair on the front part of my head started to grow again.
As you can see in my photo, I lost almost all my hair. After 6 months with Dr. Nasirzadeh's program, a lot of thin hair is growing on my head. I am very happy and hope that more hair will grow as I continue my treatment. Thanks to Dr. Nasirzadeh.
With Dr. Nasirzadeh’s recommendation, first, I did a blood test then I got my program. He advised me some supplements, creams and solutions. The spots on my face have faded, the puff under my eyes are also gone and in general, my skin is younger and brighter. I’m completely satisfied with the treatment.
The supplements and creams that Dr. Danial recommended to me had a great effect on my skin, I’m satisfied with the result and I will complete my treatment with him for the desired result. Special thanks, doctor.
A friend of mine introduced Dr. Nasirzadeh to me. Some blood tests were needed to begin the program, and I sent him the blood test reports. He sent me a program that included two supplements, one multivitamin and the herbal Breast Enhancement, also a moisturizer to prevent skin cracks. I was advised to take them for 3 to 4 months until my breasts reached the desired size. I am now at the end of the third month. My breasts have become bigger and are in better shape.
Dr. Nasirzadeh gave me a great program. One cream and two supplements recommended based on the results of hormonal tests. The result was what I wanted and I'm glad that I was under his treatment.
I had chronic sinusitis for many years, and I had to take antibiotics for that. My problem always recurred in the cold season, and it was never completely resolved until I started treatment with Dr. Nasirzadeh. My program included a number of supplements and recommendations that after a few weeks not only completely cured my sinusitis but also increased my energy level. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Dr. Nasirzadeh
I got mild Covid-19 and isolated myself at home. I felt very tired, and my body ached, so I took an online program from Dr. Nasirzadeh to boost my immune system. After three days, I feel better, and the dizziness and other symptoms have decreased. I also took two separate programs for my parents to strengthen their immune system too.
