    Creatine causes DHT elevation? wat?

    http://www.ergo-log.com/creadht.html

    Maybe that is why when I started working out again my hair started falling out at an increased rate.

    However it seems like every single creatine study has also looked at hormone levels and found nothing.

    What do you guys think?

    I have an identical twin brother --we are extremely identical-- he hasn't worked out or taken any supps over the last 3 years. I have worked out consistently and taken creatine everyday.

    we both have receding hairlines. My hairline is holding up better than his. anecdotal evidence. You are probably just losing hair quicker b/c you are getting older.

    Most people look absolutely retarded with a shaved head.

    You have to have the right shape face and head to not look like a complete idiot.

    Maybe the supplemental creatine taken was tainted?

    Genetics will always get you. Creatine may or may not increase how quickly you bald, but you will eventually bald if your susceptable to DHT either way. In the end its your genetics that fuck you, not creatine.

    bro, i hate to break it to you, but if you go bald at 50 years old who gives a shit? if you go bald in your 20's and 30's i'd be pissed. most people do NOT look good with buzzed heads. makes most people look like morons, including myself.

    Who gives a shit, honestly? buzz it and move on..no use crying about it. women aren't as visual as we are, you can be a balding, average looking dude and still get a good looking chick. work hard and make money.

    I started diffuse thinning around 18 or 19. I'm 26 now and just don't care anymore. I tried Propecia and Rogain for a couple of years and got horrible sides. It did completely stop my hair loss and I did grow back quite a bit but I got horrible brain fogginess and felt tired all the time among other things. My dad is 50 and has perfect hair. FML
