Does intake of Metformin and Glimepiride cause hair loss?
Needs more information
Hi, I am Dr Mittal. I have read your message. I think I can help you. I would need to know the exact sugars at the time if onset if medications, current sugars and the exact dose of medicines. Add a brief note about your daily diet pattern. I may be able to help u further thereafter.
Best of luck. Dr Mittal.
I have also started taking glucocil which is fish and soy. Forgive me, I saw it on Dr Oz. also cinnamon. I take a lot of supplements. I have had TERRIBLE RLS for many yrs and the only thing I have found that really help is the TRAMADOL. This seem like a lot to receive such poor results.. But it's my hair lose that I just can't deal with. I understand that my genetics aren't the best but I can't be bald too. Seems shallow but that's how I feel. I see my doctor about every 3 to 4 months but felt like the hair lose issue was not taken very seriously. Thanks
What happened? I have not heard back from Dr Mittal.
I am sorry for the delay.
There were some issues at my end due to which I was unable to respond before now.
I am truly sorry for the same.
I have read your response.
I have read your sugars were above 200 and now range between 130 to 170.
The weakness may be a part of the reduced sugars.
The bodies are used to the higher sugars. So reduced sugars I'm comparison causes sense of weakness.
IT may take upto 6 to 7 months for body to return to normal sense.
I do not suggest tramadol in the meantime. It will cause problems and may be causing your hair loss.
Also the protein supplements will actually make your sugars shoot up suddenly.
This will actually make your medicines ineffective.
And such spikes are never recommended in sugar control.
I think you should avoid them. If you have carbohydrate issues take a protein diet but not protein supplements.
What's more these supplements may damage your kidneys.
If you want you may look up effects of proteins on kidney disease. You may not have kidney disease , but diabetic patients are prone to them.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information contained in this message will be able to help you find the best solution for your problem. Again my apologies for the delay.
Best of luck. Dr Mittal
