What you described as the homo chubby bald low T men could be the result of hypo/hyper thyroidy wich is linked to mpb and to nutritional defiency (zinc/magnesium/iode).Chronic inflammation resulting from many things (including high IG diet, low omega 3/6 ratio,etc...) diet had also been linked to mpb. High DHT/prolactin also linked to mpb and masturbation. low blood flow/weak immune system/highly acidic flora/stress.... The list is long.
To clarify, that was me talking of that not OP.
And yes, studies on Balding Men vs Non-Balding Men always show some differences hormonally. It's very much a condition which can be corrected/bettered.
Anthropologically 'Alpine Men' are balders. They are Short, Chubby & Baby Faced. 'Borrebies' are balders, they are Fat and Pug Faced.
I do love my Anthropology (Racial Study), but it's times like this where I realize/think many 'sub races' are just populations which have certain Hormonal Profiles in high rates and that with treatment/correctment (during the developmental years) many of said peoples would become an 'other race'.
I have mentioned before about Alpines & Borrebies having baby dicks. They are poor 'Races'. Obesity is truly in my mind, the greatest bastardizer known to Man. I'll never get behind a Fat boy being a 'slayer'. Polynesians are similar, Fat Fucks with baby dicks. Of course some of these peoples (Borrebies or Polys) can be major amog machines with great Hormonal backgrounds (roiding and working out), but it's not the norm for these cunts.
Who's that fat fuck bodybuilder guys here post ? blaha ? He's Fat and Bald too...with a decent Beard, and some Body Hair.
One theory proposed by some Czechs is that early MPB is at times the 'Male equivalent of PCOS'. And yeah, one of their findings was 'borderline significant increases in prolactin'.
'Premature Balding' Men:
Premature balding (defined as frontoparietal and vertex hair loss before the age of 30 years with alopecia defined as grade 3 vertex or more on the alopecia classification scale of Hamilton with Norwood modification). The plasma concentrations of total testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, epitestosterone, androstenedione, cortisol, 17-OH-progesterone (17OHP), estradiol, LH, FSH, prolactin, SHBG and TSH and free thyroxine were measured.
The frequency of subnormal values in SHBG, FSH, testosterone and epitestosterone (but not in free androgen index) was significant in the balding men. A borderline significant trend was recorded with respect to increased levels in 17OH-P and prolactin.
The observed group was divided into two subgroups. The first one showed similar hormonal changes as women with PCOS, namely subnormal SHBG, FSH or increased FAI. The other had either no anomalies in steroid spectrum or only lower SHBG. The groups did not differ either in BMI or in age. The group with hormonal profile resembling that of women with PCOS, showed significantly higher insulin resistance than the group without these changes.
The findings are consistent with the hypothesis that at least a part of the men with premature androgenic alopecia could be considered as a male equivalent of the polycystic ovary syndrome of the women. These premature balding men represent a risk group for the development of impaired glucose tolerance or diabetes mellitus type 2.
Insulin Resistance is strongly correlated with obesity, something many Bald Men suffer from. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insulin_resistance
They also tested the hormonal changes induced by Finasteride (1mg a day), which backs my earlier post/opinion that Fin' increases Testosterone. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20151762
After treatment with finasteride the expected changes in the steroid spectrum were seen, namely a decrease in dihydrotestosterone and increase in testosterone, androstenedione and free testosterone index. We observed an initial increase in total cholesterol and HDL- and LDL-cholesterol, which stabilized with prolonged treatment. We founded a significant decrease in glycated hemoglobin HbA1c and insulin resistance measured using rate constant for plasma glucose disappearance (kITT) showed only a borderline decrease.
And I personally like the fact in their study they ended up dividing the Balding Men into two groups like I do. 'Male PCOS' and Men who are otherwise okay except for occasionally having Low SHBG. i.e, Exhibit B vs Exhibit A
(I reckon that the subset who bald with occasionally low SHBG, have higher DHT and other Androgens than non-balders and Male PCOS balders)
It has to be done when discussing Balding Men (dividing them up).
Another thing is MPB is strongly correlated with advancing age (40+). Obesity is more common in these Men. Their Testosterone lowers, etc, etc. For me this increased rate of balding (or simply MPB kicking in/starting) is not due to age, but due to their Hormones changing. (thinning hair in old age is normal, and not the same as MPB).
But I would like to add, that yes Balding is very much 'genetic' in that some Races can have bastardized peoples with no balding. Balding is most common in Europeans simply due to their higher affinity for DHT. (Good Facial Hair & Abdominal Hair are almost always present in balders, and both are most common in Europeans).
Carleton Coon (Anthropologist) noted that Men with great Pilosity (Hair development, i.e Beards, Concurrent Eyebrows, Abdominal Hair) tend to Bald much more so than others. Which is the first thing I picked up on back in 2011 when I started researching this all.
He also noted they had stronger Brow Ridges...though I think this is due to the Highly Androgenic subset of Balders. Obesity was much less prevalent back in his time (Exhibit B).
Premature balding definitely seems to be on the rise and it's due to Exhibit B, the Male PCOSers being more common due to fucked up Hormonal profiles.
