Diabetes Technology And The Human Factor

    I am Sure Metformin Causes Hair Loss

    I was placed on Metformin 4 months ago and since then I have lost a lot of hair,
    especially from the top area of my head. I am practically bald! Since Metformin I haven't had a normal bowel movement in weeks. My stool are usually very loose and watery and sometime awful stomach cramps accompany them. I was taking Metformin 500 mg twice a day but now today thankfully, my doctor has taken me down to only 500 mg per day. I heard that when you quit taking or lower the dosage of Metformin from 1000mg a day, that that you bowels return to normal and your hair grows back so wish me luck folks!

    I have been taking metformin for 2 weeks now and I notice that my hair is falling off. My doctor wants me to take it for a month. I'm taking 500mg/tab twice a day. Just worried that I will be bald by the end of the month.
