Excessive hair loss should never be ignored, as it can be an early symptom of diabetes. This serious health condition can affect the blood circulation, starving the scalp of nutrients that are needed to maintain hair follicles in a healthy condition. Diabetes disrupts the body’s hormonal balance, and can cause thyroid problems, which will also impact upon the hair’s normal growth cycle.
Other symptoms of diabetes include excessive thirst, blurred vision, fatigue and weight loss. Symptoms can appear very rapidly in children and adolescents, but may develop more gradually in adults. Medical advice should be sought as soon as the condition is suspected, as unmonitored diabetes is potentially very dangerous.
There are numerous causes for hair loss, whether it develops rapidly or over a longer period of time, so if you have any concerns about thinning hair or patchy hair loss you should seek professional advice. The hair specialists at the Belgravia Centre have a wealth of experience in diagnosing and treating a wide range of hair loss and scalp conditions.
