My son just got diagnosed 3 months ago and is on Lantus. But I have a question can your hair fall?
From it he's loosing a lot of Hair sense he was diagnosed he was on homolog and Lantus now he only on Lantus. and Now I'm worried hair loss does run in my family But Not like this Its was to much and doctor said she don't now why. and now he getting embraced to be around girls. So its not like he had enough as a kid already now this.
Just what a teen needs, really makes him want to take his meds. I never heard anyone say their hair was falling out on it, but I looked it up in 2 places and can't find anything that says it causes that. Could he be having alopecia, maybe from the upset of the diagnosis and illness?
I'm so sorry about your son's condition. Hair loss is actually a symptom of diabetes. It has to do with the metabolic system. Hopefully once his diabetes gets under control with diet and insulin, his hair loss will stabilize. Hair loss is a side effect of some diabetic medications, but I can't find anything about it being a side effect of his present medication. So hopefully his hair loss will stabilize once his body does. I wish you both the very best.
