I’m a 20 year old male and a type 1 diabetic. I’ve been type 1 for 5 years since 15. Since diagnosis, I have never taken care of myself, at all! my blood sugars were terrible for 5 years (denial of diabetes) and my hair is receding also.
I was wondering if constant bad blood sugars would cause hair loss?
The most important thing here is to take care of yourself.
At 20 years old, it wouldn’t be surprising if your genes were just as responsible for your hair loss as your diabetes. In other words, you could very well have diabetes along with genetic hair loss. Diabetes is a systemic disease and it can impact all parts of your body if you leave it untreated. See a good hair doctor so that you can find out what is going to happen to your hair and what you are going to do about it.
