From Colorado, USA:

My daughter, who has had type 1 diabetes for five years, used to have long hair, but now it is breaking off. What should we do?


Hair that breaks off can represent other problems such as a fungal infection. I would suggest reviewing your current problem with your daughter's pediatrician.
