Hair loss, thinning.

Has anyone else had this issue? I have always had extremely thick hair even though it’s fine a have a lot of it. But over the last 6+ months I have noticed more and more hair loss when I wash it and even when I just brush and comb it. My hair is natural with no colours or product in it, but it’s long to my waist, I had comment about this to family friends but they said it just because my hair is long now.

Check side affects of diabetes medications. My hair is thinning but I am 65. It is an age thing with me.

Thanks for you advice, I’m on metformin so I hope the hair loss will slow, my hair is my thing, it’s really the only pretty think I have left, even if it’s half the thickness it use to be, suppose I’m lucky that my hair was really thick to start with, or I might be bald by now! I will research the shampoo.
