Anabolic Steroids Have Caused Alarming Increase Of Premature BaldnessAnabolic steroids are known to produce several side effects including excessive sweating, insomnia, heightened aggression and male pattern hair loss. According to a leading hair clinic the premature baldness is becoming an alarming complaint among men who use designer drugs.

Optima Hair Specialists – which supplies advanced hair replacement systems – has seen a 60 percent increase in enquiries from men who have taken anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) and suffered early hair loss.

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) has an adverse effect on hair follicles and is the main culprit behind hair loss. Recent studies have found that steroid drugs can increase the levels of DHT within the body and therefore accelerate hair loss.
