    TLDR Balding men, especially young ones, may have higher risk of heart issues and diabetes; check cholesterol levels.
    This study from 12 years ago investigated the association between androgenetic alopecia (AGA) and metabolic syndrome in men. The study found a significant association between AGA and metabolic syndrome, particularly in younger men. High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) was found to be of particular importance. The study suggests that early intervention for metabolic syndrome is critical to reduce the risk and complications of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus later in life. Patients with AGA should be evaluated for metabolic syndrome components to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
