From Chester, California, USA:
My 17 year old daughter, diagnosed with diabetes at age four, has recently noticed that her hair has become dry and unhealthy. I don't know whether it can be attributed to diabetes or not, but I was thinking maybe she needs to be on a good multi-vitamin anyway. I was wondering if you could recommend the right one for a diabetic teen.
Get her thyroid checked. Underactive thyroid is commonly associated with diabetes and is easily treated.
