DUPA Hair Loss. Any suggestions? (photos)

You need an examination for a better understanding of why you are losing hair. The Internet will only give you generalizations.

DUPA and Hair restoration - Don't despair!
DUPA patients make poor transplant candidates, that is true. Get a definitive diagnosis from a good dermatologist who knows hair well, and then work with whatever that result is.
But even if it IS DUPA, you STILL have a lot of options! Try aggressive medical therapy first. Finasteride, minoxidil, ketoconazole shampoo and LLLT all simultaneously can have a multiplicative effect. Multiple scientific trials show that the efficacy of combining these treatments is higher than any one of them alone (I added one recent one to this post but there are lots more on the NIH database known as PubMEd)! Keep as much hair as you can - it makes all your other options look better.
SMP is great, too, and there are fantastic non-surgical hair replacement options (like wigs) from reputable outlets like Cesare Ragazzi (with whom I have NO affiliation by the way). You could even try PRP - it might help - who knows? The key thing is not to give up.
