Can consuming sugar reduce hirsutism and the hormone DHT?

1 Answer:

Hi Aji Fian,

Hirsutism is a condition in which hair grows in male characteristics and patterns on female body parts, such as coarse and wavy hair that grows on the face, chest, and back. Hirsutism is influenced by genetics and heredity, but can also occur in certain disease conditions that increase androgen hormones (hormones that make up male characteristics), especially testosterone, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, Cushing's syndrome, tumors in the adrenal glands, or side effects of medications ( such as systemic corticosteroids and fluoxetine). There is also a link between insulin resistance (a hormone that regulates sugar) and hirsutism (as in the case of PCOS), but the treatment is not by consuming sugar but controlling insulin with drugs. Consuming too much sugar in people with insulin resistance can make the condition worse. Regarding the hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone), this hormone is an androgen hormone that cannot be reduced by consuming sugar. In contrast, some studies have found that this hormone plays a role in controlling blood sugar levels.

If you have health problems related to the conditions above, you should discuss again with your doctor about the complaints you are experiencing in order to get medical advice and appropriate treatment according to the diagnosis.
