People with diabetes are more likely to have a condition called alopecia areata. With alopecia, the immune system attacks the hair follicles, leading to patches of hair loss on the head and on other parts of the body. ... Some people with diabetes also have thyroid disease, which can contribute to hair loss. So please test your TSH level and sugar levels. Treatment of underlying cause may be helpful. Consult the physician. Good luck
