Best treatment to reduce DHT level in body or target testosterone conversion to DHT, to suppress male pattern baldness.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best treatment to reduce DHT level in body or target testosterone conversion to DHT, to suppress male pattern baldness.
Many individuals have reported that changing their diet has resulted in helping to control hair loss, especially when it was done in combination with a product that limit the production of testosterone DHT. 1) Steering clear of the Western diet is one of the best ways to avoid and defend against baldness. By introducing low-fat protein sources, such as non-fatty fish, chicken, turkey, and soy products as well as complex carbohydrates from fruits, vegetables, and beans, into a diet rich in fatty acids can be effective in helping control hair loss. By utilizing a healthy diet in tandem with drug and herbal therapies, individuals can greatly increase the odds of their success. 2) Eat sizeable portions of fruits, vegetables, and beans. Don't emphasize potatoes, pasta, and bread. These foods quickly turn to glucose, spinning insulin levels out of control as blood sugar levels rise rapidly and fall just as quickly. This compromises the body's ability to regulate hormone levels in the blood. Such foods should be kept to a minimum. 3) Likewise, caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, and sugar, affect the body with a similar effects on the blood. These stimulants steal nutrients from the body while passing through the system, disturbing blood-sugar and hormone levels. Adrenal glands are adversely affected. Significant use of stimulants disturb and deplete the glands, which in turn affects the level of nutrients in the blood stream and eventually levels of hair damaging DHT. 4) By eating five to six smaller sized meals a day; the body will be able to maintain proper hormone levels, thereby providing hair with the nutrients needed for hair growth and maintenance. 5) It is best to avoid processed or refined foods. Natural and organic foods are digested and utilized by the body in a more even fashion, allowing for better regulated hormone and blood-sugar levels. Refined grains lack the best source of vitamin B, an important building block in hair growth. This deficit is further exacerbated by the lack of green leafy vegetables

Understanding Autism.


Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that affects 1-2 people out of every 1,000 people worldwide. It is a wide spectrum disorder, so no two people with autism will have the exact same symptoms. There are those who function easily, those who are impaired and struggle to live normally and then there are others in between. Difficulties in communicating, social impairment and repetitive patterns of behaviour are some of the major symptoms that characterise autism and the related autism spectrum disorders (ASD).


Read the following articles to gain a better understanding of this condition:


Diagnosing Autism

In order to create awareness and combat this problem, early diagnosis and social acceptance is necessary. Here's a brief on what we can do to recognise autism.

 

Decoding the Symptoms of Autism

Although there is no scientific cure for autism, its symptoms can be worked upon with the help of a communication or behavioural therapist. 

 

Treatments for Autism

In this article, we chalk out the main treatments and therapies for curing autism in children and adolescents.

 

In conclusion, it’s important to treat these conditions not as disorders but to accept them as differences. Accept them in the same way we accept people of all races. These conditions are not caused by any disease or injury but because of genetics andenvironmental factors. Science suggests that neurological diversity has helped humans throughout their evolution to survive in the environment. It’s possible that those affected might just come up with solutions for problems that might escape those with normal brain wiring. Not because they’re necessarily smarter, or better, but because they think differently.  So it’s necessary to accept, respect and accommodate those with such conditions.  To care, not repair is the outlook we should have for the betterment of mankind.

Why do not you try to findout the root cause of diabetes and find the correct therapy and help the human community. Like TB, LEPROSY,CHOLERA, PLAGUE,SMALL POX MALARIA FILARIA etc. These diseases also have symptoms ravaging the community since centuries but the then Scientists investigated ,found the root cause, medicine and cured !BUT NOW DOCTORS ARE INTERESTED IN MAKING MONEY OVER BLOWING AND SCARING PEOPLE WITH SO CALLED DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECTS OF DIABETES WHICH OCCURS IN ALL AGING PROCESS. EVEN WITHOUT DIABETES. HIGH TIME YOU START FREE treatment FOR ALL DIABETICS LIKE TB, LEPROSY,AIDS. Etc. Now there is no institution in the world in diabetic research area.

Mr. lybrate-user, You are right that there should be more research in the field of diabetes, and it is happening. The only difference between various diseases which you have mentioned and diabetes is that those are all infections some caused by bacteria and some by viruses. Infections can be cured by using drugs like antibiotics and anti -virals. Plus vaccination so that our body makes antibodies against the invading organism and fights them. But diabetes, hypertension, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism are part of non-communicable diseases. Some of them particularly diabetes and hypertension are directly linked with the lifestyle a person follows. T1 diabetes is is an autoimmune disease where our own immune cells produce antibodies against Beta cells which secrete Insulin, destroying them. This leads to diabetes which has to be treated only with insulin injection that too for the whole life. In 1921 Insulin was discovered, which is now helping us save life of scores of diabetic patients. T2 diabetes is increasing mainly because of increasing excess eating, taking in of lot of junk foods, inactivity, indulgence in alcohol and smoking. There is continuous research going on to find out how the patients can be helped. It wrong to say that doctors are not interested in curing the disease and want to make money. Enough efforts are being made. Infact increasing awareness about the disease and change in life style will help us in redcucing diabetes. Thanks.

Thank you for the query habitual constipation is very difficult to treat. The piles that you have developed is most likely a result of your constipation. Drink plenty of water (at least 2 litres a day) and include adequate dietary fibres. Take fibres like isapghula/naturolax with water. Lactulose based laxatives can be taken up to thrice a day. Get your thyroid profile checked as hypothyroidism can cause constipation. Avoid oral iron tablets. A colonoscopy may be needed if the problem is persistant. Regards.
