Metabolic syndrome in androgenic alopecia.

Post  CausticSymmetry on Fri Feb 12, 2016 3:37 am

Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol. 2016 Feb 9. doi: 10.4103/0378-6323.174421. [Epub ahead of print]
Metabolic syndrome in androgenic alopecia.
Gopinath H, Upadya GM1.

BACKGROUND:
Androgenic alopecia has been associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease in various studies. The relationship between androgenic alopecia and metabolic syndrome, a known risk factor for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, is still poorly understood.
AIM:
To study the association between metabolic syndrome and early-onset androgenic alopecia.
METHODS:
A hospital-based analytical cross-sectional study was done on men in the age group of 18-55 years. Eightyfive clinically diagnosed cases with early-onset (<35 years) androgenic alopecia of Norwood grade III or above, and 85 controls without androgenic alopecia were included. Data collected included anthropometric measurements, arterial blood pressure and history of chronic diseases. Fasting blood and lipid profile were determined. Metabolic syndrome was diagnosed as per the new International Diabetes Federation criteria. Chi-square and Student's t-test were used for statistical analysis using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 17.00.
RESULTS:
Metabolic syndrome was seen in 19 (22.4%) patients with androgenic alopecia and 8 (9.4%) controls (P = 0.021). Abdominal obesity, hypertension and lowered high-density lipoprotein were significantly higher in patients with androgenic alopecia versus their respective controls.
LIMITATIONS:
The limitations of our study include small sample size in subgroups and the lack of evidence of a temporal relationship between metabolic syndrome and androgenic alopecia.
CONCLUSION:
A higher prevalence of metabolic syndrome is seen in men with early-onset androgenic alopecia. Early screening for metabolic syndrome and its components is beneficial in patients with early-onset androgenic alopecia.

Very interesting, I think I read a similar article by Mercola about grains etc. and AGA.

What is the best procedure for reversing Metabolic Syndrome?  Is it as simple as completely cleaning up your diet, as I did?  I am quite light (almost 6 feet, 150 ish pounds), but don't have much muscle, but still look skinny.  I do have too much BF but you can't really notice it much due to my weight.

I used to exercise too hard but have tried to stop that.

Maybe people who going bald are depressed with their fate and turn to food or "feel good" junk food more than people who are proud of their manes.

Circa 2004, I had enough evidence to focus my hair regimen with that in mind. I've seen several papers explaining the link between metabolic syndrome and advanced onset alopecia.

So a large part is to reduce Lp(a) and to restore or improve the mitochondria. So the aging part of it plays a role, since balding is a form of advanced senescence.

I hate that exercising too hard is bad for hair.

Being a Metabolic Issue, then a Kempner Diet might work:
