One solution to hair loss is a hair transplant. It’s important to do your reasearch and find the right doctor.

Male pattern baldness affects so many men that many have come to think hair loss is inevitable. But early hair loss is a warning sign that your hormones are out of balance. This imbalance is known to raise your risk of prostate trouble and heart disease.

It is excess levels of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that poison the hair follicles on the top of your head, causing loss of hair and eventually baldness. While killing your scalp hair, excess DHT can also cause more hair than is normal to grow on the rest of your body, and can cause other more serious health problems as you get older.

So what can you do about it? Ask your doctor about Propecia (finasteride) or Avodart (dutasteride). These medications can help lower your DHT levels. Hair loss is mostly preventable, and even to some degree reversible, if you take care of it soon enough. And by treating it early, you may lower your risk of more serious male health problems as well.
