    im guessing it can't

    my labs said i have very high estradiol but i'm going to retest them..don't trust the results
    my free testosterone is also a lot higher... .8 from .2 and .3 and free testosterone makes dht, so that would explain some things as well.

    i definitely look like i have Androgenetic Alopecia...so my follicles are just super sensitive

    Dear Sleepywaif, just want to throw my 2 pence. I am struggling with thinning hair since 2012 and I came to a conclusion that no one Dr knows really what triggers it and the honest ones will tell you so. The rest will try to fix it with different hormons etc etc, vitamins and yes, if the reason is easy one - iron will help, pill with more estradiol, and hair is usually recovering and regrowing. The rest is the mystery.
    As for testosterone, there are tons of women who have higher testosterone and yes, they defenitely have this DHT, BUT one must be allergic on it, what all trichologists say. It is like with cats for example, many people have cats, but some are allergic on cats fur. Just bad luck.

    I will said for high testosterone sugar of ANY kind it the key! Quitting sugar whether it be pure cane or substitute sugars along with bad carbs will bring androgens down. When I quit and was eating right my Dheas started coming down
