So, I have a question that pertains mostly to the guys in the forum. I don’t mean to exclude our female T1D’s, but this question is something that really, only guys in the room can answer. If you’re thinking, “Oh yeah! sex questions!”, you’re gonna be sorely disappointed…
Backstory. Since probably October of last year, I have been wearing sweat pants to the gym. I have been wearing sweat pants to the gym in winter months for years now and have never encountered this issue. I usually convert back to shorts at the gym right around this time every year. This past Saturday I did just that. Everything was as it should be until my workout partner blurts out, “Dude…are you shaving your legs?”
It appears my lower leg hair has taken a vacation. On top of that, it also appears that the remaining hair has changed texture and become soft and wispy (two words that violate the terms of my “Man Card”)
On top of that, my wife has been making comments about how soft the hair on my head has become. My hair has looked and felt like like brown velcro since about 1972. It too, seems to have changed in the last couple of years. I’ve noticed it no longer “crunches” when I lay down on a pillow and I can actually run a comb thru it.
I guess I could throw this question out to the ladies also, but I don’t think many of you outside of post- Soviet Bloc eastern European countries would be able to offer much advice on leg hair issues.
Could this possible be diabetes related? Has any other guy noticed anything similar? Am I turning into a 14 year old girl?
