Hello,

No, Diabetes does not cause hair loss, perhaps a certain medication.

Diabetes Symptoms

High blood sugar levels can cause several symptoms, including:

Blurry vision
Excess thirst
Fatigue
Frequent urination
Hunger
Weight loss

Because type 2 diabetes develops slowly, some people with high blood sugar have no symptoms.

Symptoms of type 1 diabetes develop over a short period of time. People may be very sick by the time they are diagnosed.

I would like to apologize, my initial answer is incorrect and incomplete.

Diabetes can cause hair loss, one way in which diabetes can cause hair loss is a result of the effects of high blood sugar on the circulatory system.Another way in which diabetes can cause hair loss is by disrupting the endocrine system.Diabetes can also have an indirect effect on hair loss as a result of autoimmune disorders.
