    Hair loss From Diabetes

    Diabetics will understand how much a problem hair fall can be. It is one of the common by products of diabetes. Hair loss is one of the symptoms of diabetes. Usually, it is accompanied with frequent urination, frequent thirst and dry mouth.

    The major reasons why diabetes is a contributor to hair loss are given as follows:

    1. High Blood Sugar Levels: When the sugar level rises in the blood, it keeps oxygen from reaching follicles. Due to such improper blood circulation, hair don’t get enough nourishment. Therefore, they start breaking and falling at a rapid speed.

    2. Immune System Weakness: In diabetes, a person’s immune system tends to weaken. When the body’s ability to fight with internal threats reduces, it automatically affect the body parts. Hence hair also suffer from it.
    There are numerous other ways in which diabetes can cause hair fall, namely stress, hormone disorders, bad blood circulation and also the use of some drugs and medication.

    Cholesterol and Hair Loss

    Hair loss and cholesterol have been considered to have connections. A study found an association between hair loss and higher cholesterol levels and diastolic blood pressure readings. Normally, aging people can face both the problems at once. According to a few researches, high level cholesterol is considered to be a reason for hair fall. With high level of cholesterol, arteries seem to get blocked with time. Hence, oxygen and nutrient are not able to reach follicles. Hence hair roots are deprived of nourishment.
