Is there a way to produce more dht?

No

Dht
Males produce DHT according to their body needs. Artificially increasing DHT may cause the problems associated with steroid abuse. If DHT and or testosterone levels are low to begin with, an endocrinologist should be consulted.

Dr. Alvin B. Lin answered:

Can high dht cause prostate problems?

Yes

Estrace
High DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is associated w/prostate enlargement (and hair loss). Medical solution is 5ARI, eg finasteride (Proscar & Propecia) or dutasteride (Avodart), which stops conversion of testosterone into DHT. But DHT sits on other side of seesaw from E2 (estradiol) so lowering DHT might raise E2, leading to erectile dysfunction + loss of libido. So be very careful!

What are side effects of dht blockers?

Increase Estradiol

Testosterone is converted into both DHT (dihydrotestosterone) & E2 (estradiol). Think of these two as balanced on opposite ends of seesaw. If you block/decrease DHT, you could potentially increase E2. Too much E2 in men leads to moobs (man boobs), nipple sensitivity, gynecomastia, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, etc.

Can a high dht level reduce man boobs?

DHT and Gynecomastia

Dht
There is some experimental evidence that taking DHT can decrease gynecomastia (man boobs) but not anything definitive re: diet. DHT can cause male pattern baldness so not a popular treatment

Dr. Alvin B. Lin answered:

Is dht produced when you have an erection?

No

Dht
DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is produced by 5 alpha reductase (5ARI) converting testosterone. You can stop this from happening by using a 5 alpha reductase inhibitor such as finasteride or dutasteride. However, beware that testosterone is also converted into estradiol (female hormone) so that if you keep it from going down one pathway, it might choose the other.

Is it safe to take dht blocker during puberty?

Unknown

Dht
This hasn't been studied, to my knowledge, but I'd guess DHT is pretty important during puberty, so it's probably not a good idea to block it during that critical phase. Personally, I wouldn't take the chance. And why would you want to do it anyway?
