How is that the DHT clogs up in the scalp? What action causes increase in DHT levels? How to balance the levels, by exercise? Or by foods?

How is that the DHT clogs up in the scalp? What action causes increase in DHT levels? How to balance the levels, by exercise? Or by foods?

Unfortunately it also causes scalp hair loss. This is a natural consequence of being male and having testosterone. You can't change it by what you eat or exercise. Meds like Minoxidil and finesteride can affect the Dht levels and slow hair loss. ...Read more

I am facing with the problem of increased triglycerides to the level of 228 mg/dl and decreased level of HDL to the level of 31 mg/dl. Please suggest.?

Lipids: High triglycerides are related not only to the fat in your diet but also the simple sugars, so need to reduce both of these. Hdl is more difficult to increase, it is not due to diet, but can be improved with aerobic exercise.
