Did you recently get diagnosed with diabetes?
Have you noticed more and more hairs on your brush?
Or perhaps you’ve been living with diabetes for a long time, but it’s still worth considering whether the disease could be contributing to your hair loss.
Hair loss falls into three categories: alopecia androgenetica, alopecia areata, and telogen effluvium.
Alopecia androgenetica is characterized by male pattern baldness, which can happen to box sexes due to hormone changes. Alopecia areata develops when the immune system attacks the hair follicles, and telogen effluvium is hair loss that occurs due to stress.
