    TLDR Inflammation may be linked to hair loss, and targeting specific enzymes could help treat it.
    The article explores the potential connection between microinflammation and androgenetic alopecia (AGA), a type of hair loss caused by testosterone and its derivative 5-DHT. Studies suggest that inflammation may be involved in AGA, and treating inflammation could be a possible solution for AGA. The paper proposes targeting certain enzymes involved in hormone synthesis and microinflammation as potential treatments for AGA. However, further research is needed to fully comprehend the relationship between inflammation and AGA.
