Anyone else notice balding with metformin?


Ronnie Goodwin

Oh my. No, not yet—hope never.

Gordon Forrest

No. It could be you’re just going bald.

Sandra Fingerut

Thought it was due to my Graves Disease and the medication for this thyroid condition.

Mary Ann Cox

My thyroid was messed up and caused me to lose hair. Now it is thick on thyroid meds. I do take metformin.

Shana Bridges

No but I’m only 41 and been on metformin for 2 years. Check your stress levels or thyroid.

Kristin Myhre

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.

Garold Raney

I was bald before diabetes,,,,,, so sad,,lol

Andi Gundlach

Before I was diagnosed, I lost hair. Were you recently diagnosed?

Eric Holler

I’m totally playing my hair loss since I was diagnosed ten years ago on the Metformin from now on

John Johnson

My doctor took me off metformin don’t think you’re supposed to be on that for long periods of time.!!

Vicki Campa 

Maybe u are anemic. Metformin depletes B12. That’s why you are losing hair.

Laurel Akram

I’m T2 and I don’t take any of the medications!! Because I believe it hurt you more than helping you,

Angella Martin-Cuffe

Paula please take B 12 while you are on metformin.

Eva Safar

Make sure it is activated methyl B12

Debbie Boomhower

Yes! i certainly have. My hair is falling out at an alarming rate. I had no idea it could be from the metformin.


Melissa West Burgess

Get your thyroid levels checked that will also make you loose your hair. It’s an autoimmune disease also

Elif Nazmiye

I have a lot of patients on metformin, never noticed hair loss

Kamla Bachan 

I know plenty people who is diabetic and is getting bald but I don’t know what is the cause

Mike Alkire 

Still have hair. I shave it and it keeps coming back.

Rachel Case-Vinson 

I haven’t had to shave my legs for 15 years. It just doesn’t grow. Been on metformin for 16 1/2 years

Christina Marie Cueto 

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 .
Also diarrhea.
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 

Tamryn Davey 

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.

Karen Mascola

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

Been on for almost 20 years and just last year started losing it very noticeably.

Jim Adams 

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

Glena D Coley

yes and had bad bubble guts……… dont miss it


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.
