    TLDR People with early onset baldness have higher bad cholesterol and lower good cholesterol, increasing their heart disease risk.
    In 2010, a study involving 300 participants compared lipid profiles between 150 patients with early onset androgenetic alopecia (AGA) (80 males and 70 females) and 150 controls with other skin diseases. The results showed that both male and female patients with AGA had significantly higher levels of triglycerides, total cholesterol, and LDL-C, and lower levels of HDL-C compared to the control group. Specifically, female AGA patients had higher triglycerides, total cholesterol, and LDL-C, and lower HDL-C than female controls, while male AGA patients had higher triglycerides, total cholesterol, and LDL-C than male controls. The study concluded that individuals with AGA have a higher prevalence of dyslipidemia, which could increase their risk of cardiovascular disease.
