RE: [IP] A couple of questions

One thought on hair loss and diabetes:

Per the recent posting on the C-Peptide study:  If indeed C-peptides are
the maintainers of tissue and organ health; this could have an effect on
the hair folicules (sp) as well.  It would be interesting to see if there
is a statistical sorrelation between diabetic complications and hair loss.

Are those among us who seem to be "resistant" to complications less bald
than those of us who are prone to complications; regardless of bg control?
Do we all have the same deficiency on C-Peptides or are some of us still
producing some?  Is there a correlatoin here between hair loss, C-peptides
and complications?

hummm... ...would need individual stats on age, sex, duration of diabetes,
C-peptide levels, and level of current complications to do this analysis.

Anyone willing to take theball on this?
