ive been diagnosed with Androgenetic Alopecia, TE, and PCOS. I am 33 years old and my hair has been thinning since I got diagnosed with Pcos at the age of 19. ive had several bouts where there was no shedding and just a maintenance of the condition. however it really amped up after I turned 30, and I started shedding triple the amount as my twenties. I finally found a doctor who told me that despite my BMI and healthy habits, I have "thin Pcos" and insulin resistance bc my dad has t2 diabetes. that is causing the hormonal imbalance, low progesterone (lack of ovulation), and bouts of shedding. he put me on metformin which traditional doctors never thought to do. ive been on met 1500mg for 2 months and my shedding has totally improved to normal levels (10ish hair shed every 2 days). other indices of hormonal health also improved - acne, PMS/mood changes/breast tenderness, hirsutism. im also on rogaine foam, however I had been on this since age 25. for the most part it grew hair but the hair was downy growth. also, as my FPHL condition progressed, the hair grown added little cosmetic value. SO in September 2018 I added the laser comb. the reason I feel as though its a success is bc in the pic it seems the laser comb has converted a lot of the downy thin short growth into more robust hair. as you can see, some of the thinner hair is still there (indicated by the red arrows) and im hoping it will cycle through and get thicker. I used to have a part line of entirely those types of hair. my feeling about this device is that it WILL work if you have an active viable follicle and you're not necessarily trying to regrow hair. you're only trying to thicken existing hair. for gals with Androgenetic Alopecia, this is ideal, because the sickly/short strands is truly what contributes to the diffusely thinning look. my part line def looks tighter. let me know what you guys think - does it just look like a progression of the FPHL or success?
