Anyone else notice balding with metformin?
Oh my. No, not yet—hope never.
No. It could be you’re just going bald.
Thought it was due to my Graves Disease and the medication for this thyroid condition.

My thyroid was messed up and caused me to lose hair. Now it is thick on thyroid meds. I do take metformin.
No but I’m only 41 and been on metformin for 2 years. Check your stress levels or thyroid.
No but I got thinning hair from the mirena IUD I have. Hormones (as well as your thyroid) can cause thinning hair. Multivitamins, prenatal vitamins or ones with biotin help a bit with that. It sucks though. My hair was fine already lol.
I was bald before diabetes,,,,,, so sad,,lol
Before I was diagnosed, I lost hair. Were you recently diagnosed?
I’m totally playing my hair loss since I was diagnosed ten years ago on the Metformin from now on
My doctor took me off metformin don’t think you’re supposed to be on that for long periods of time.!!
Maybe u are anemic. Metformin depletes B12. That’s why you are losing hair.
I’m T2 and I don’t take any of the medications!! Because I believe it hurt you more than helping you,
Paula please take B 12 while you are on metformin.
Make sure it is activated methyl B12
Yes! i certainly have. My hair is falling out at an alarming rate. I had no idea it could be from the metformin.

Get your thyroid levels checked that will also make you loose your hair. It’s an autoimmune disease also
I have a lot of patients on metformin, never noticed hair loss
I know plenty people who is diabetic and is getting bald but I don’t know what is the cause
Still have hair. I shave it and it keeps coming back.
I haven’t had to shave my legs for 15 years. It just doesn’t grow. Been on metformin for 16 1/2 years

Mine started with polycystic ovarian syndrome, so I wouldn’t have noticed if metformin caused any hair loss. I’ve heard that diabetics can have issues with thinning hair anyway.

My helicopter landing has got bigger since 2 years ago when I was diagnosed diabetes type 2 , Metformin prescription.
I always thought that genes have a very heavy reason of weigh on this , but maybe everything starts to make sense .
What a mess of stress .
Now in type 1 , worse I know , but out of medication , just insulin.
My helicopter landing is still there , nothing growing
Yip my hair has gone so thin since being on metformin… so many bad side effects with it
Lynn Henderson Flaisig
Not me. I have been taking for 15 years. I have super thick hair.
I was losing hair badly before starting metformin- my doctor said it is a side effect of high blood sugar. It is a lot better now.
Mark Andrea Collins

Wow maybe that is it. Notice it the last few years

My successful Diabetes Treatment Story
My doctor diagnosed me with diabetes just over a year ago, at the time I was prescribed Metformin. I went to the some diabetes related websites and learned about the diet they suggested. I started the diet right away and I was very loyal to it. However, after weeks of being on the diet it never helped, my blood sugar didn’t drop like I wanted it to. My personal physician wasn’t much help either, he didn’t really seem to give me any other options besides my prescription and the usual course of insulin. I was about to give up and then I discovered a great treatment method. The guide was authored by one of the leading professionals in the world of diabetes research, Dr. Max Sidorov. This is a guide that that shows you, in a very simple way, how to conquer the disease without traditional methods. I have to say that since I’ve found the guide and followed it, I’ve not only improved my health but I’ve also lost weight and improved other aspects as well. My activities have increased and I have a ton of energy! It is my goal to share the this diabetes treatment method as much as possible to show people there’s more to the disease than traditional schools of thought and you can find your own path to healing with natural methods.
