Re: [IPk] Can diabetes cause body hair loss?



Lesley,

I think it was an observational thing possibly down to new clothing... after
all a good amount must fall out daily as normal, just I'd not noticed
before. Body appearance unchanged.

Hair loss with age (diabetes or not) is quite common in men & as it happens
more so with diabetes as you say (and my gp said the same).  I am still
young-ish, & would not expect that to be an issue at my age, even with 13
years of diabetes under my belt.

Thanks,
Marc

Hi

Sorry its a bit late but I'm catching up with my emails.

I remember reading in Richard Bernstein's book "Dr Bernstein's Diabetes
Solution" that he has lost the hair on his legs, despite years of excellent
control.  He puts it down to long term diabetes.
