People suffering from diabetes can face a range of health issues, hair loss being one of them.Although hair loss can be caused by a variety of factors such as stress, hormonal imbalance, underlying medical conditions,hair loss due to elevated sugar levels in people remains very common around the world.

Some people may confuse natural hair loss due to regrowth cycle with a developing hair loss condition. So, it is best that you refrain from self-diagnosis and consult a hair loss expert to properly evaluate your condition.

Are you a medical doctor? Many women suffer hair loss after the menopause and this can be very distressing. However if any underlying medical conditions are ruled out - you are on your own and very unlikely to get a referral to a hair loss expert. (Not in the UK under the NHS anyway.) There is no magic cure only wigs, hair weaving systems or a transplant.
