Hello, my daughter was diagnosed with acromegaly 9 mths ago and has been on Lanreotide injections every 28 days. She also has MAS bone disease and diabetes, but my main question at the moment is, can Lanreotide cause severe hair loss... Thank you, Chris
Hair loss (alopecia) is not a reported side effect of Lanreotide.
Has she had any radiation treatment? If yes then maybe this is the reason for your daughters hair loss.
In any case talk with her doctor.
