Hi dear readers,
Today I want to talk about resolving diabetes and hair loss problems.
I understand that hair loss is a huge problem, especially when you have diabetes too.
I understand also that everything that has to do with our external presence, especially hair performance can have a great affect on you.
I always repeat to you, and I’ll do it on and on: There is always a chance to find the right remedy for every thing in our life.
Now, you must understand that diabetes is a condition in which the glucose balance inside your body is damaged. This results in high blood sugar levels, problems in blood circulation and other damages too.
You should know that every time there is a hair loss, your body
can replace the old and lost hair with a new one through the re-growth
process. Everyday you may lose hair, but due to this process you don’t
face hair lost problems.
When diabetes is present, due to unbalanced blood sugar levels, there can be some problems in blood circulation. Several bodies’ areas have a bad blood circulation. Thus, even tiny wounds, or bruises and skin infections (yeast, bacterial infections) have difficulties in healing.
But when these infections occur in hairy areas, the hair begins to fall in those areas. And your body retards in healing and re-growth of the lost hair. This results in a visibly hair loss.
Another cause of hair lost during diabetes can be stress.
As for all diseases, even in diabetes, there exists a stress situation caused by high blood sugar levels, and maybe from you.
And this leads to hair thinning. And with the passing of time, this thinner hair, begins to fall until hair lost.
All the above happens when you don’t really know that you’ve diabetes. What you can do is, once you notice these hair problems for a long time, as any other diabetes symptoms and signs, then immediately contact your doctor for further treatment. It’s possible for you to cure the hair lost in time.
But when you’ve diabetes, and are taking some medications to beat diabetes, then these medications can be a possible cause for your hair lost. They have some undeliverable side effects for your hair.
Anyway, what you should do is as follow:
First of all consult your doctor for future treatment of diabetes. You must control it in order for you to manage your hair lost.
But, if you’re taking diabetes medications, then if you don’t want their bad side effects on hair lost,
you can try other natural cures to control your blood sugar and improve the hair growing.
Try to relax yourself. Don’t keep it always stressed. If you follow all the right instructions to beat your diabetes, you’ll see that its symptoms and complications like hair lost will be diminished. Relieving stress can avoid hair lost and skin damage too.
