How Steroids May Cause Thinning Hair

For men, the most common hormone-related cause of hair loss or thinning hair is the use of anabolic steroids. Anabolic steroids increase the number of anabolic (male) hormones, including testosterone, in the body to encourage muscle growth and strength.

Steroid abuse can cause, among other major health concerns, thinning hair and male pattern baldness, since peak levels of testosterone support the production of DHT.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse confirms that steroid abuse can cause irreversible changes in a person’s health and appearance as do other common drugs that can cause hair loss.
