    I have noticeably thinning hair due to my uncontrolled diabetes. Once I manage my diabetes is there hope for my hair to come back, or will it stay this thin?

    Hi Mo. I'm sorry to hear about your thin hair and your uncontrolled diabetes. I hope you're able to get it under control, because if you're losing hair imagine what damage it's causing on the inside, where you can't see the effects! Uncontrolled blood sugar can lead to thinning hair, and many people who get their condition under control and maintain a healthy diet find that their hair does grow back. Check out MyDiabetesCentral.com and feel free to ask others about their experiences with hair loss. Good luck!
