" Prolonged, high blood-sugar levels damage various tissues in the body including those of blood vessels in hair follicles."
Hair loss is more than just an aesthetic issue. The recent scientific studies revealed that there are some underlying health conditions that trigger hair loss in both men and women, such as diabetes, heart diseases and hormonal imbalances.
How Diabetes Causes Hair Loss
People who suffer from diabetes are at a higher risk of suffering from hair loss due to these following reasons:
1. High blood sugar levels trigger inflammation. Many studies showed that chronic inflammation is closely associated with diabetes. Chronic inflammation is an autoimmune condition, the same type of condition that triggers alopecia areata. People who suffer from type 1 diabetes are at a higher risk of suffering from alopecia areata, a hair loss condition characterised by smooth bald patches on the scalp.
2. Prolonged, high blood sugar levels damage various tissues in the body including those of blood vessels in hair follicles. Over time, the hair follicles are deprived of nutrients, causing the hair to weaken. In the advanced stage, the hair follicles will not even be able to produce or grow hair.
3. Diabetes often increases the stress levels both physically and mentally that can cause further hormonal imbalances. Hormonal imbalances are one of the major factors in hair loss.

How to Reduce Diabetic Hair Loss
When it is diagnosed at an early stage, diabetes can be treated easily. Living with diabetes is all about being discipline with taking the medication and maintaining a healthy lifestyle including diet. In fact, for some people, having been diagnosed with diabetes was the turning point in their life to be healthier and happier.
If you suffer with hair loss due to diabetes or any other reason, use hair loss products that have been specially developed to increase blood flow to hair follicles. As a scientist who used to suffer from hereditary hair loss, I developed Hair Growth Serum and Scalp Stimulator to deal with my own hair loss condition. I have been using them exclusively to strengthen and restore my hair.
Scalp Stimulator has been formulated with menthol, rosemary, thyme, lavender and cedarwood essential oils to balance the scalp and increase the blood flow to hair follicles. Gently massage to the affected area of the scalp. Leave for 20 to 30 minutes then shampoo it off. For best results, use it once a day.
In the morning and at night, I apply Hair Growth Serum to the crown and front scalp to boost hair growth. Formulated with caffeine, niacinamide, panthenol and salicylic acid; Hair Growth Serum increases hair density and prolongs the growth phase of hair.
