Do Abominable Snowmen Suffer from Male Pattern Baldness?

Bigfoot Abominable SnowmanScientists searching for the legendary ape-like creature known as the abominable snowman (or Yeti to his friends), believe they may have found proof of the elusive beast’s existence.  It also seems that the creature may experience hair loss.

The group of international scientists, along with Yeti enthusiasts were gathered in the remote Kemerovo region of Siberia in Russia for a conference to discuss the animal’s existence. On a trip to the Azasskaya cave there, close to where the Yeti has been previously spotted, they say they discovered footprints, what could be a ‘bed’ area, and a substantial quantity of hair.

“During the expedition to the Azassakaya cave, conference participants gathered indisputable proof that the Shoria Mountains are inhabited by the ‘snow man’,” according to an official statement from the local administration of the region.

If genuine, the scientist’s findings may point to another, even more surprising conclusion – that the Yeti in question may be suffering from Male Pattern Baldness.

Abominable snow-male pattern baldness?

According to many reported sightings of the Yeti, the creature is remarkably human-like in appearance, so may share some of the same physiology as us. If the lost hair is indeed a sign of genetic hair loss, he may have inherited the condition from one of his equally elusive relatives on his mother or father’s side.

In humans, Male Pattern Baldness usually presents itself as a receding hairline and/or thinning hair across the crown. As Yetis are (allegedly) covered entirely in hair from head to toe, the hair loss may or may not spread across the entire body. Either way, with the bitter sub-zero Siberian winter approaching, and no warm jackets discovered in the cave, he might well want to seek treatment for his hair loss sooner rather than later.

As for the scientists, they plan to do tests on the hair they found. If they wish to ascertain whether the abominable snow man is indeed suffering from Male Pattern Baldness, they could test the hair for traces of dihydrotestorone (DHT) – the naturally occurring chemical which, in humans at least, causes hair follicles to shrink and cease production of new hair.

Can Male Yeti Baldness be treated?

Treating a Yeti for Male Pattern Baldness may be difficult. As the species itself has not been scientifically proven to exist, there are also no scientifically verified methods available for treating their hair loss.

For men of the not so abominable variety there are two pharmaceutical treatments which have been scientifically proven to be effective in treating Male Pattern Baldness (also known as Androgenetic Alopecia). These are Minoxidil and Propecia, which have both been licensed for this purpose by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). At the Belgravia Centre we use these in conjunction with the HairMax LaserComb, clinical treatments and other hair growth boosters to achieve maximum results. To view the kinds of results we achieve, take a look at some of the  success stories and photos on our website.

If you are a Yeti, then unfortunately we won’t be able to help you, but for all the humans reading, you might be in luck.
