It is not related to your blood pressure or diabetes medicines. It may be due to something else and you can consult a physician and get evaluated.

I am a 73 year old women who recently notice that I have some hair loss only on my right side from my scalp. I do have my hair dyed at the beauty pallor and my hair is wavy and I keep it short. I am a diabetic and do take medication and I do have high blood pressure. Yet, I see no hair falling out when I take a shower or when I comb my hair. I do take Biotin for about a month yet see nothing happening.
