This just gets better and better: my hair is falling out at an alarming rate. My endo does not care.
Oy! I really want a low A1c and BGs in my target range almost all the time. I don't want hypos or highs. I don't want neuropathy, kidney damage, or any one of the many serious complications that are possible.
But mostly, right now, I just want my hair to stop falling out.
Maybe it's because I've always had great hair. Or maybe it's because it's a visible, tangible sign of a disease that's otherwise so invisible (until someone sees me checking my blood sugar or injecting) I can pretend to most of the world that it's no big deal even though the daily effort sometimes feels extraordinary.
