first i would like to say that i greatly appreciate your website and the time you put into it.
does the rate and age at which a male starts to bald corespond to the rate and age at which other men in their family start to bald? in other words, my dad and every guy on his side of the family and on my moms side of the family started going bald in their early 50s. does this mean that i will also start balding in my early 50s. also is it possible for me to start balding at the crown eventhough everyone in my family has never shown signs of baldness in that area?
i have been reading that scientists in britain have said that weightlifting can increase the rate of the male pattern baldness? is there any truth to this? do aerobic exercise reduce testosterone levels in your body?
thanks for your time
There is no way to be definitive in answering the question. Many people do follow their family patterns of hair loss. You may or may not. I do not believe that exercise increases hair loss unless you are taking exogenous steroids.
