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.

High blood sugar levels damage small blood vessels. This damage can lead to less oxygen and fewer nutrients reaching the hair follicles which may have an effect on your hair such as thinning or brittle hair.

If you are facing high levels of blood sugar then it may cause hair loss. Hair loss due to diabetes can be controlled by monitoring blood sugar levels on regular intervals, taking balanced diet & exercising regularly.
