    TLDR Early hair loss links to metabolic issues in young Indian men.
    This study found that there is a significant association between premature androgenetic alopecia (AGA) and metabolic syndrome (MetS) in male Indian patients under 30 years old. Patients with AGA had higher triglycerides, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and lower high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels compared to controls. However, no significant association was found with respect to FBS or waist circumference. The study suggests that larger sample sizes may be required to conclusively define any putative associations between AGA grades and MetS.
