Dr. Ustuner's theory seeks to reconcile some puzzling observations related to the development and progression of AGA.

Balding areas of the scalp show increases in a potent form of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), while drugs that block conversion of testosterone to DHT can slow hair loss.
