Is diabetes related to hair loss?
Diabetes is a condition where the body cannot produce insulin or doesn’t use insulin effectively and those suffering with it are often likely to develop hair loss, we see this quite regularly at our clinics.
Insulin is a hormone that moves sugar from the foods we eat to our cells and is stored as energy. When your body doesn’t produce insulin, the sugar can build up in your body and can cause various health issues., it can also damage the cycle of hair growth, resulting in hair loss.
What should I do?
Consult your doctor if you are having diabetes symptoms and then a lifestyle change is needed to control your blood sugar.
