The hair loss Problem of Diabetics is a very common situation. Let’s examine the reasons for this. Diabetes is a problem that means the level of sugar in the blood is too high or low. There are two different types of diabetes, type 1 diabetes, and type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is less common than type 2 diabetes. In this disease, the immune system sometimes attacks the insulin-producing cells. It is usually diagnosed in childhood. Type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, is a disease that occurs in advanced ages and occurs due to the body’s inability to produce enough insulin or not respond to it properly.
Insulin levels should be kept under control. If not kept, problems such as hair loss may occur. If the blood sugar in the body experiences an uncontrolled rise or fall, the endocrine system may be disrupted. In this case, patients experience deterioration in hormones that regulate hair growth and hair follicles.
Therefore, hair loss occurs in diabetics. Regardless of male or female, these patients may experience deterioration in the functioning of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone hormones, which affect hair growth, due to the disruption of the endocrine system. As a result, hair follicles cannot grow in a healthy way. Hair growth cannot be seen and after a while, thinning, and thinning of the hair begin.
Blood sugar can be controlled with proper nutrition or medication. Thus, it can be seen that the hair is starting to grow again. At this stage, it is recommended that patients undergo hair transplantation.
Hair loss due to blood circulation in diabetics
People with diabetes can also have blood circulation disorders. If the blood sugar level is not kept under control and becomes excessively high, this excess sugar in the blood reacts to the hemoglobin in the red blood cells. If there is a high amount of sugar in the blood, hemoglobin is converted into glucose. Thus, blockages and compressions can occur in the capillaries. The fact that oxygen does not carry enough oxygen to the body and that different tissues and cells are deprived of oxygen is one of the problems that cause wear on hair stem cells and kill hair follicle cells.
Can type 1 diabetes patients have hair transplants?
If you need to take insulin by injection daily to keep diabetes under control, it means you have type 1 diabetes. In this case, it is not recommended to have a hair transplant. Because hair transplantation is an operation that takes a long time to heal. In this case, there may be dangerous ups and downs in blood sugar. Ups and downs in blood sugar directly affect hair loss and therefore hair transplantation is not recommended for people with type 1 diabetes.
At the same time, serious blood circulation disorders can be seen in these people. In order for hair transplantation to be successful, blood circulation must be good. Because this situation is directly related to hair growth and hair root. It is expected that blood circulation will be regular in terms of healing the wounds from the transplanted area.
If you have Type 1 diabetes, you can protect your hair with natural shampoos and dermal sprays that provide hair growth. Evocapil Plus products prevent hair loss and provide new hair growth with natural ingredients in their content.
Can type 2 diabetes patients have hair transplants?
Yes, type 2 diabetes patients can have hair transplantation. Hair transplantation is successful in these patients. Before starting any hair transplant, these patients should undergo various tests and examinations by a specialist doctor. These tests include a blood test. Blood sugar should be kept under control. If blood sugar can be kept under control with drugs, hair transplantation is performed.
The duration of hair transplantation in diabetics
On average, a successful hair transplant operation takes between 6 and 8 hours. The methods used in hair transplant operations are applied according to your hair structure and condition. The only difference found between the processes is the duration of the operation.
The healing time of hair transplant wounds in diabetes
One of the most common problems encountered by diabetic patients is the problem of wound healing. Wounds that heal quickly, even in a person without diabetes, heal for a long time even in people whose blood sugar is not regular. The healing of a normal patient’s wounds begins within the first 15 days. However, in diabetic patients, this happens within the first month. In diabetic patients, wounds are more easily infected. For this reason, people with diabetes should be more careful during the healing process. Good blood circulation in the scalp reduces the recovery time.
Therefore, people with diabetes should definitely apply the FUE method. In this technique, very small wounds are formed on the scalp. Therefore, it would be correct to use the FUE method in order to achieve success in hair transplantation in diabetic patients.
In addition to all these, people with diabetes mellitus are requested to visit our Clinic more frequently during the recovery period compared to normal patients. This is because, apart from being diabetic, you may have problems with blood circulation or the immune system. Therefore, during this process, you should not do anything other than what is recommended by our doctor, and with regular visits, you will have a natural hair appearance. As a result, as long as type 2 diabetes is under control, you can get successful results by taking the necessary precautions before and after the procedure.
The change, which is visible in three months in normal patients after hair transplantation, can cover a period of six months in diabetics. All this information is provided by our doctor. People with diabetes should definitely state their discomfort before the procedure.
It is important to use the products recommended by your doctor to ensure that your hair grows stronger and more frequently after hair transplantation. Using products after hair transplantation will help your new hair to grow healthier.
