As men age, their bodies begin to produce less testosterone, and the body will also convert some of that testosterone to dihydrotestosterone, or DHT. This can in turn lead to balding and hair loss, which often takes place on the mid-scalp area and the vertex. It can happen to men between the ages of 20 and 40, as well as older men. Propecia is a drug that can be taken to fight against the male pattern balding, reducing the impact of it over time and helping men to keep their natural hair. It is used instead of other treatments, such as hair grafts, which move hair from other parts of the body to the scalp, or treatments to help the hair grow.

To do this, Propecia interferes with the body’s ability to turn the testosterone into dihydrotestosterone. By blocking this process, higher testosterone levels are maintained, and balding can slow down significantly. The conversion is carried out by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase, or 5a-R. Propecia stops this enzyme from being produced in the skin and other areas, and, without the enzyme, the conversion cannot take place.

Other tactics for increasing the amount of testosterone in the body include taking testosterone supplements. It should be noted that Propecia is not a supplement and it does not add more testosterone to the body. It simply helps the body maintain the testosterone that already exists by stopping the conversion. As a result, only men are supposed to take it, and women and children are instructed never to use it. It could significantly alter hormone levels in women and children when such alteration is unnecessary and detrimental.

While it is marketed under the name Propecia, the drug itself is called finasteride. There are also generic versions of this drug that have been on the market, some of which could have similar side effects. It is important to note that anything including finasteride could be potentially dangerous, even if it is not technically being sold as Propecia.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
