5) Can chromium deficiency cause hair loss and abnormal insulin readings?
Chromium is a mineral that humans require in trace amounts. Chromium is known to enhance the action of insulin and also appears to be directly involved in carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism. Chromium stores in the body may be reduced under several conditions. Infection, acute exercise, pregnancy and lactation, and stressful states (such as physical trauma) increase chromium losses and can lead to deficiencies. Chromium deficiency impairs the body's ability to use glucose to meet its energy needs and raises insulin requirements. Eating a variety of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, meats, and milk and milk products should provide sufficient chromium. According to the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, "Nutrient needs should be met primarily through consuming foods. Foods provide an array of nutrients and other compounds that may have beneficial effects on health. Many drugs have been reported to cause hair loss and although for some drugs the effect is well known, for others the evidence mainly consists of case reports. Many commonly prescribed prescription drugs can cause temporary hair loss, trigger the onset of male and female pattern baldness, and even cause permanent hair loss.
