    TLDR At least 87% of Indian men experience hair loss, with type II being most common and severity increasing with age.
    This study examined male pattern androgenetic alopecia (AGA) in an Indian context. The study included 150 male patients with AGA who were clinically diagnosed and met certain inclusion criteria. The Norwood classification was used to determine the type of AGA. The study found that at least 87% of Indians are affected by AGA, compared to more than 61% of Chinese. The most common type of AGA observed was type II according to Norwood grading, which is consistent with previous studies. The study found a gradual shift in the type of AGA from earlier types to more severe types with increasing age. The study also proposed simplifying the classification of AGA to avoid confusion.
