Everyone, including children, can suffer from hair loss, called alopecia by doctors. Baldness is undue loss of hair from your scalp. It can be caused by heredity, medical condition or even drug therapy. Androgenetic alopecia is the commonest type of hair loss. It is the cause of approximately 95% of the cases of hair loss in the United States of America. Men suffer from androgenetic alopecia far more often than females. Two factors influence hair growth: a genetic predisposition and the male hormone testosterone (yes, women have a low level of testosterone in their bodies). Normally, an enzyme in hair follicles converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that stimulates the growth of body and beard hair, but also diminishes hair follicles on the scalp, causing thinner, fuzzier growth. A genetic predisposition, along with higher levels of testosterone and DHT, can adversely affect scalp hair growth. Baldness occurs when lost hair outnumbers re-growth or when the re-growth is finer and/or shorter than the hair that is shed. Androgenetic alopecia is not considered a medical disorder; it is more a cosmetic defect. PROPECIA (Finasterine) is one the most efficient methods to cure it approved by FDA. Taken daily in a pill form, Propecia slows down the conversion of testosterone to DHT, thus helping to prevent the diminishing of hair follicles. The tablet must not be taken by women, since it may bring on birth defects. GENERIC PROPECIA, which is as effective as the branded medication, is much cheaper and, thus, more affordable for males suffering from alopecia. At the end of two-year study 83% of males aged 18 - 41 with mild to moderate treated with Generic Propecia have showed positive results of the treatment. Most males reported improvement in appearance. Generic Propecia may bring on adverse side effects. In clinical studies, adverse side effects from Generic Propecia were infrequent and did not impact most men. An insignificant number of men experienced some sexual adverse side effects. Each of these adverse side effects was observed in less than 2% of males. These adverse side effects were impermanent and went away in men who stopped taking Generic Propecia. These side effects also went away in most males (58%) who kept on taking Generic Propecia.
