Hormonal Hair Loss 2
For women with male-patterned baldness, one of the causes can be too much testosterone. We find that insulin and testosterone can be related and there is another growth factor involved. For whatever reason, milk products increase growth factor (which, of course you would want if you were a calf drinking mother’s milk). This growth factor increases testosterone levels in women, so women with excessive facial hair or darker arm hair (hirsutism) should refrain from drinking milk to help lower this growth factor (called insulin-like growth factor 1).
