Diabetes is a common disease that has fallen upon many Americans. Often times people suffering from Diabetes will come to US Hair Restoration wondering whether they qualify for a hair transplant procedure. The question we often ask our patients is how well their diabetes is maintained.
Patients who have diabetes are able to have successful hair restoration procedures as long as the condition is under control. For many years Diabetes was a disorder that lowered a personís life expectancy, and because of the risk of wound complications and infections, elective surgeries were limited. With modern medical science and updated methods for controlling diabetes, patients can safely have their transplantation procedures and other elective procedures without a major risk of infection or complicationís during the healing phase.
The protocol Dr. Mohebi has established here at US Hair Restoration requires there to be a clearance from the patientís regular physician who monitors their diabetes more closely. When the blood glucose range is at a normal level and there is managable control over the diabetes, then a hair restoration is a viable option.
