    TLDR Higher BMI links to worse hair loss in Taiwanese men.
    This study found that higher BMI was associated with greater severity of male-pattern androgenetic alopecia (AGA) in men in Taiwan, especially in those with early-onset AGA. The study suggests that obesity might be a strong modifier of alopecia severity in this subgroup. Further studies are needed to understand the mechanism underlying their association and to develop new treatment modalities.
