No unless you have some crazy medical condition.

That would cause more of a diffuse thinning though right?

MPB is androgenic alopecia. There is no other reason except genetic for the cause.

Although, other conditions or issues can bring on alopecia that is not related to androgens - if you have androgenic alopecia and also another condition that can show alopecia symptoms, then there is likely to be a dual-effect.

You're right. Sorry I meant to say if there are any non-genetic reasons which accelerates MPB.

Sure plenty of nutritional deficiencies result in hair loss. Unfortunately many of us have been misled to believe that taking synthetic supplementation is a great way to compensate.

I would suggest after decades of falling prey to this marketing that it is not true. One must obtain their nutrition in an form that their body can use and that is through food.

For example biotin in a bottle can't even compare to biotin is beef liver along with all the other b vitamins in just that one food alone. Doesn't mean you are going to grow your hair back but if you are suffering from some deficiency that is might be possible.

Stay away from doctors who perform mega sessions, have posts deleted, attack posters, sue patients & forum owners, use power drills or robots. I recommend fue with hand punches in the .70-.85 range. I consulted with dozens of clinics over the years and there was a recurring theme regarding FUE among some employees of those other clinics. I was told Bisanga was the man my research told me the same and my experience validated my own research.

Scalp conditions might be the most common cause of non-genetic alopecia in men. Things like dermatitis rarely cause much or permanent hair loss, but infections occasionally do.

I've seen all types of people with all different types of lifestyles. It's genetic 99% of the time unless it's a medical reason.

This discussion resembles one from a few years ago. I think I referred to statistics in that one. From memory, it's at most 98% of cases. 5% or more cases involve other causes, though (meaning overlap sometimes). If researchers randomly screened and thoroughly tested men off the street with visible hair loss (an expensive, why-bother study), I think the percentage of strange causes would increase. Most of them eventually affect large portions of the scalp, but I think generally not the safe zones to a visible degree.

Edit: a cause rarely stated - medication. Adam Ant is the first celebrity I've heard do that. Obviously, he also has MPB.
