Well, green tea increases SHBG. I got nothing besides the usual for the
other suspects - although if there's something to the PCOS relationship,
perhaps high dose NAC or insulin sensitizers would work?

Note what wasn't significantly different: DHT (which I find most
curious), TSH or cortisol. (A lack of SHBG would make DHT more active
per se, though.)

OK, so if they're studying baldness as the male equivalent of PCOS why
aren't they looking at any measures of insulin activity besides SHBG?

Hormonal Profile of Men with Premature Balding.

Starka L, Cermakova I I, Duskova M, Hill M, Dolezal M, Polacek V.

Institute of Endocrinology, Prague, Czech Republic.

Objective. Premature androgenic alopecia has been suggested as a
feature of the male equivalent of the syndrome of polycystic ovary.
However, the hormonal pattern of men with premature balding has been
investigated in only a few studies with inconsistent results. Material
and Methods. We examined 37 men with premature balding (defined as
frontoparietal and vertex hair loss before the age of 30 years with
alopecia defined as grade 3 vertex or more on the alopecia
classification scale of Hamilton with Norwood modification). The plasma
concentrations of total testosterone, dihydrotestosterone,
epitestosterone, androstenedione, cortisol, 17-OH-progesterone (17OHP),
estradiol, LH, FSH, prolactin, SHBG and TSH and free thyroxine were
measured. Results. The frequency of subnormal values in SHBG, FSH,
testosterone and epitestosterone (but not in free androgen index) was
significant in the balding men. A borderline significant trend was
recorded with respect to increased levels in 17OH-P and prolactin.
Conclusions. The hormonal pattern of a substantial number of men with
premature balding resembles in some respects the hormonal pattern of
women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
