    TLDR DHT's role in hair loss is important, but measuring its level for diagnosis is questionable.
    This document discusses the role of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in androgenetic alopecia (AGA), a common form of hair loss. The study found that DHT has a strong androgenic action and plays an important role in the pathogenesis of AGA. However, the usefulness of serum DHT level measurement in the diagnosis of AGA is questionable, especially in women. Other factors, such as genetics and nutritional deficiencies, can also contribute to AGA. The document provides a comprehensive review of the current understanding of AGA, including its causes, diagnosis, and treatment options.
