Cardiovascular and crown thinning

Cardiovascular and crown thinning

Post  niff1250 on Sun Jul 01, 2018 8:55 pm

Hi,

This post concerns young people with vertex and crown thinning with little or no frontal recession.

CS posted a couple of interesting studies showing relations between balding (especially vertex thinning) and cardiovascular risk factors. People with crown thinning are more likely to have coronary artery disease the studies said.

Risks factors of coronary artery disease are : smoking, lack of exercise and poor diet (increasing LDL/bad cholesterol).


So I have some questions :
1) Does that mean thinning in this case is due to poor blood flow (because of fatty depositis in the artery) ? Which would explain why some medication like minoxidil increase hair growth and works pretty well for vertex (it dilates and widens small arteries in the body causing the resistance to blood flow to decrease)

2) Improving one's cardiovascular risk profile seems a good option but I fail to see what role DHT plays. If it was a problem of blood flow, the hair would thin everywhere (not just the crown). What is the role of DHT in this kind of balding ?

niff1250 - There's definitely a connection between cardiovascular disease and vertex balding.

However, the popular hypotheses on causes of heart disease, such as the ones you mentioned above are (believe it or not), not the true culprits.

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.3109/08037051.2015.1111021

What actually causes the problem (there are many), but cholesterol values have little significance. Sure, there is a LDL/HDL ratio relationship and that can be mitigated.

Academia has been corrupted long ago and medical institutions, since everything is about getting grants and funding, donations, etc.

The following reveal culprits closer to reality.

Refined Polyunsaturated fatty acids
Fibrinogen
Calcifcation
Toxic heavy metals
Root canals and cavitations
refined starches and sugars
and low Omega-3 fatty acid levels.
Macro and micro mineral deficiencies

Thanks for the different culprits, going to study them especially toxic heavy metals.

As regards connection between cardiovascular disease and vertex thinning, what is exactly this connection ?
Is this something like this :
cardiovascular disease => poor blood circulation => thinning in the crown ?
So it has nothing to do with DHT ?

Poor circulation?  Not necessarily. Inflammation in the blood by toxic byproducts would be most probable.

If inflammatory markets such as fibrinogen, C-reactive protein (CRP) and lipoprotein(a) were measured, there's a correlation.

If you search within the pages of this forum (using the Google option), not the "inside" you'll find lots of details.
Could spend hours just talking about it. Lots of assumptions are made about blood flow, circulation, most of the guesses I've seen on here missed the mark entirely, when real research is examined.

The truth gets down a lot of rabbits holes...

But suffice to say, those earlier mentioned factors are huge.

DHT is not a cause, it is a downstream. Just based on serum values only, vertex will have higher DHT, but DHT is really a non-factor in the serum. Salivary has a direct effect.

An interesting paradox used to be that hypoxic blood blow was good for hair growth..no wonder as the researched revealed that toxic blood flow impedes hair growth. Then people might, but when why does massage help?  Reduces inflammation...so not as "cut and dry" as it seems.

Elevated angiotenesin, ala higher systolic blood pressure values, just another factor.

Goes on for a while...there are dozens of growth inhibitors.

The easiest way to figure this out is focusing on what is causing the said inflammation. It's not the same cause, but rather quite diverse.
