Doctors usually offer men suffering hair loss the choice between two options: a Propecia treatment course or hair transplantation. Of course, there may be other solutions thrown into the picture, such as hormonal treatment or experimental pills, but that’s actually a rare occurrence that only depends on how inventive your doctor is. In general there are just two really effective solutions to the problem of hair loss in men, and picking between them can actually be challenging as they are quite different and have their pros and cons. In order to make the choice a bit easier for you let’s review each of the methods and try to figure out which will suit you better.
Hair transplantation compared to using Propecia
Hair transplantation is an older hair loss treatment, with the first surgeries performed back in 1930′s. However, the true popularity of this method bloomed during the 1950′s when new surgical equipment and techniques were developed. Either way, the method has been around for quite a long time to give us a good understanding how effective it really is and to improve t through the use of advanced tools and technologies. The concept, however, remains unchanged and it’s actually the simplest and the most obvious solution for the problem of hair loss one would come up with. As you probably know, male pattern hair loss is characterized by partial balding of the scalp, with patches of thick hair surrounding bald areas. In simple words hair transplantation takes the hair from these hair patches and plants them onto the bald areas. Technically there’s much more going on there, with the most advanced specialists using only particular configurations of hair follicles.
To figure out the pros and cons of such an approach is easy. The main advantage is the speed at which you get the final result: just one or several surgeries and you get the perfect hair back without waiting for it to grow back. However, the disadvantages are also present. First of all, the procedure can be rather costly depending on the specialist and facility involved. Hair transplantation can be rather painful or at least discomforting during the recovery phase, since you get entire hair follicles transplanted between different places. Yet, the most discouraging disadvantage is the fact that hair transplantation doesn’t address the actual cause of the problem and doesn’t guarantee that you won’t lose the transplanted hair under the progressing baldness. You can spend several thousand dollars on a costly surgery and experience the same problems after several months or years. Doesn’t sound too promising, right?
In this perspective, Propecia seems to be a more attractive solution since it does exactly what hair transplantation doesn’t – address the very cause of hair loss in men. The drug was developed by the Merck Corporation after one of their researchers got intrigued by a 1970′s study, which described a population of men in the Caribbean with genetic mutations that led to smaller prostate and no instances of hair loss. The researcher wanted to mimic this genetic mutation through the use of pharmaceutics and thus Propecia was created. Today it is marketed both as a medication for treating benign prostatic hyperplasia and hair loss in men. And if you think that these conditions aren’t connected in any way, you’re utterly wrong.
It was discovered that most cases of hair loss in men are caused by high levels of a specific androgen that tends to accumulate with age. The very same androgen is also responsible for increasing the size of the prostate, causing symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. So it would be logic to address the problem by decreasing the levels of this specific androgen, and that’s exactly what Propecia does. Once the hormonal balance is restored, the prostate decreases in size while the lost hair starts growing back as it normally would without hair loss.
This leads us to the apparent pros and cons of using Propecia. The great thing is that it actually addresses the root of the problem and fights the cause rather than the consequence, which ultimately leads to better and sustainable results. On the other hand, it usually takes several months to see any results while the hormonal balance is restored and it takes even longer for the hair to grow back at its normal rates. Moreover, if you stop taking Propecia the process will be reversed due to the uncontrolled hormonal balance, and you will end up losing the hair at a certain point. So when choosing Propecia treatment you have to understand that it’s a long term course that can continue indefinitely.
As you see, both hair transplantation and Propecia treatment have their advantages and disadvantages. And choosing the right method is always a matter of setting your priorities straight. If you need results fast and aren’t worried by the risk of losing them and requiring a new operation, then hair transplantation may prove to be the best choice for you. But if you’re not in a haste and want to get guaranteed and sustainable results no matter how long it may take you, go with Propecia!

Craig Franblau takes gluten-free labels seriously and if he dines outs he makes sure the restaurant guarantees that the food it says is gluten-free actually is.
I read every ingredient and always have a few gently asked questions to ask a human being before I purchase or put anything into my body, he said.
Craig has celiac disease, an autoimmune digestive condition that causes damage to the small intestines and interferes with the absorption of nutrients from food. The disease is triggered by the consumption of gluten, which is found in wheat, barley and rye.
Research estimates that 83 percent of Americans who have celiac disease are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with other conditions and that 18 million Americans have non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Foods that are gluten free are normally found in diets for celiac disease, but people with a gluten allergy, unrelated to celiac, should also avoid gluten.
These numbers, along with increased awareness, mean a growing demand for foods that are gluten-free. Gluten-free sales reached more than $ 2.6 billion by the end of 2010 and are now expected to exceed more than $ 5 billion by 2015.
Extend Nutrition, a healthy snack company that offers a patented line of snacks clinically proven to control blood sugar for up to 9 hours, recently confirmed that 16 of its flavors are gluten free.
All Extend Nutrition snacks are made with gluten-free ingredients, said Jonathan Lindberg, Extend Nutrition outreach manager. We recommend 16 snacks for people with celiac disease. In our gluten-testing, we go one step further than the FDA recommended guideline (20 parts per million) and use a test that can detect gluten levels as low as 10 parts per million.
Lindberg went on to explain that Extend Nutrition snacks are continually tested for gluten as part of their quality assurance program. Extend uses the anti-omega gliadin antibody developed by Skerritt and Hill for detection. This antibody, which detects both gliadins and glutenins, is the basis of the AOAC International Official Method for gluten detection.
The test used by Extend Nutrition has been validated and certified as a Performance Tested Method(sm) (#051101) by the AOAC Research Institute as an effective method for the detection of Gluten in a wide variety of foods and environmental surfaces.
This type of testing and quality assurance is important to people like Craig, who does not want to take any chances with his health. While he finds it positive that foods that are gluten free are increasing in popularity, his concern is that the foods are actually safe for those with celiac and not just the followers.
Restaurants, he notes in his blog, are a big concern because they do a poor job of separating gluten-free items in their kitchen yet still claim to have gluten-free items.
Approximately 90 percent of restaurants are catering to the gluten-free lifestyle of customers who are merely interested in the ingredients, but not as much in the safety of cross contamination, he wrote. Do not put gluten-free on your menu if you cant guarantee a celiac can eat there.
Craig, who was diagnosed in 1997 with celiac disease, said he has been living 100 percent gluten-free for more than 16 years with no accidents.
There are no pharmaceutical cures for celiac disease. A 100-percent gluten-free diet is the only existing treatment for celiac today.
The snacks that Extend Nutrition labels as gluten-free are the 7 flavors of Extend bar Peanut Butter Chocolate Delight, Peanut Delight, Chocolate Delight, Mixed Berry Delight, Apple Cinnamon Delight, Peanut Butter Crunch and Chocolate Crunch.
Two flavors of Extend Nutrition drizzles, four flavors of Crisps and three flavors of Shakes have also tested as gluten-free to less than 10 parts per million, Lindberg said.
The gluten-free snacks were created by Dr. Francine Kaufman, world-renowned endocrinologist and past president of the American Diabetes Association, in the 1990s. The key ingredient is uncooked cornstarch, a very complex carbohydrate that digests and converts to blood sugar slowly.
In addition to being a gluten-free food, the snacks are also used to help people with diabetes manage blood sugar, sustain energy, control hunger and lose weight.
There are three types of people who benefit most greatly from a gluten-free diet: Those who have celiac disease, those who have a wheat allergy and those who are gluten intolerant. Symptoms of all three types include bloating, abdominal discomfort or pain, diarrhea, muscular disturbances and bone or joint pain.
We recognize the need for healthy, gluten-free snacks and foods, and we have developed a line that is both gluten-free and healthy, Lindberg said. Our tests confirm the safety of our snacks for celiac patients and people with a wheat allergy who follow a strict diet of foods avoiding gluten.
