Aspiring a lighter or spironolactone also known by its brand name al dictum is a medication that has been used for almost 60 years and has a number of research packet uses like a variety of other prescription medications that have been produced with one particular use in mind spironolactone has also been found to have a few interesting off-brand applications as

Well one source application is the reduction of dht found in the body and more specifically the scalp so what conditions is spironolactone actually used to treat well first is acne for women who suffer from treatment-resistant acne spironolactone has been found to be an effective treatment short and long-term use has been deemed safe the additional research

Would be beneficial for women looking to use spironolactone as a long-term acne treatment also is used to treat excessive hair growth hirsutism also known as excessive hair growth is a common symptom in women who suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome or pcos this condition is caused by an excess amount of androgens such as dht in the body and spironolactone

Has been proven to effectively reduce the level of androgen present and reverse his suit ism was a heart failure a study was performed on 1663 patients suffering from heart failure 822 of these patients received a daily dose which was 25 milligrams of spironolactone while our 841 patients received a placebo at the end of the study the patients who received the

Spironolactone had a 35% less frequency of required hospitalization and also had a 30% decrease in risk of death also high blood pressure in patients with uncontrolled hypertension spironolactone was shown to be an effective treatment and at some boldness dht the androgen hormone which is also responsible for excessive hair growth in women as mentioned above is

Also responsible for pattern baldness which can occur in both men and women spironolactone has been shown to reduce the levels of dht in the body and has been found to be an effective treatment for those suffering from hair loss so can spiral axon be effective at treating hair loss as mentioned spironolactone was found to reduce the amount of dht in the body

Well this is great news for hair loss sufferers what is dht and how is the production of dht useful for hair growth well we’ve discussed the effects of dht on male pattern baldness many times dht is a chemical that’s produced when testosterone the male sex hormone comes into contact with an enzyme known as 5 alpha reductase when someone suffers from androgenetic

Alopecia also referred to as male pattern baldness the production of dht leads the miniaturization of hair follicles in dht sensitive regions of the scalp to understand this is first important to understand how hair grows there were three phases associated with hair growth antigen catagen and telogen antigen is the phase of active hair growth and this phase has

Been as a length of anywhere between two to six years catagen is next and is also known as a transition between active growth and breast lastly is telogen this is the phase in which the follicle is at rest and is most commonly associated with the shedding of hair what happens during the above three phases however when the hair follicle has been minimized by dht as

The follicles miniaturize the growing phase shortens this means that over time shorter and shorter hairs will be produced at the same time the telogen phase lengthens eventually the has become so short that they will no longer peek through the follicle and the follicle stays in a perpetual state of rest it’s obvious then that for those individuals suffering from

Male pattern baldness and the reduction of dht is vital in order to prevent further hair loss and stimulate hair growth so what does the research have to say about spironolactone when it comes to hellos while the majority of research surrounding the use of spironolactone in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia has been performed on women the visuals can still be

Used to show the effectiveness of suture treatment once her study was performed on a 53 year old woman with clinical evidence of female pattern baldness which is similarly linked to dht just as in med the subject was initially treated with the 200 milligram overdose of spironolactone daily and she had documented hair regrowth at the 12 month mark the hair growth

Did eventually plateau by the 24 month mark it was at this point in the story that a twice daily dose of minoxidil 5% solution was prescribed and further hair growth wasn’t documented so what does this mean for surfers abe and regina to gallop isha and more specifically male surfers one history shows that spironolactone supplementation is effective in not only

Stopping hair loss but also effective at hair regrowth – combination treatment can that be an effective treatment for those with male pattern baldness and in this case it was spiral electrode with minoxidil although many side effects is taking a spironolactone you may be wondering if androgenetic alopecia is more common in men and why are the majority of studies are

Androgenetic alopecia and aspiring like – and performed on women well there’s a very good reason for this and that’s almost supplementation of spironolactone in men has been connected to feminization according to a 2004 study entitled gynecomastia and hyper antihypertensive therapy or supplementation of spironolactone has a number of pleasant side effects these

Effects include gynecomastia which is basically the male breasts impotence and decreased libido the incidence and severity of these effects is dependent on being given dosage though even and low over dosage of 25 milligrams a day had a 10% incidence of gyno and all breast pain men does this mean that men cannot use spironolactone to treat hair loss absolutely

Not while although supplementation has been linked to gano and other feminization effects topical supplementation was found to be highly effective in the treatment of alopecia and the side effects were minimal or even non-existent so how can you start using it for hair growth while oval supplementation may be a viable option for women suffering from androgenetic

Alopecia the best course for men is topical supplementation of spironolactone when applied topically to the scalp spironolactone appears to have only a localized effect this is a great treatment option for men who would like to try spironolactone but wary of their more common oral side effects now obtaining it is the easiest way to obtain a topical for use in male

Pattern baldness is as a prescription from a dermatologist or the medical professional unfortunately spare an electron is not available over the counter so the help of a doctor in obtaining the treatment is required how do we apply spironolactone to the scalp well there’s no right or wrong way to apply spironolactone topically some individuals who are using its

Treat male pattern baldness apply only to problem areas while other individuals will apply to the entirety of the scalp application is simple begin with the pea-sized amount of spironolactone on your fingertips rub your fingertips together and then massage the cream into your scalp in a gentle circular motion repeat the above steps until the areas you’d like to

Target have been massaged and the spironolactone has been applied while clinical studies have applied the spironolactone on a daily places you may also find that every few days or even once per week is sufficient for you there’s no doubt that supplementation of spironolactone has an effect on the androgen levels in the body both male and female for treatment in
