Question: Is hair loss related to the amount of testosterone in the body?

 Question:  Is genetic hair loss related to the amount of testosterone in the body?

 Answer: No, people with a high amount of testosterone will not necessarily experience genetic hair loss.  Hair loss is caused by dihydrotestosterne (DHT) which is produced when testosterone is combined with an enzyme in the body called 5-alpha reductase.  Some people produce more DHT than others but this is not directly related to the amount of testosterone in the body.
