From Aurora, Indiana, USA:

My 10 year old son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes about six months ago, and since then I have see a significant amount of gray hair show up on him. Is there are direct correlation between diabetes and premature gray hair?


I'm unaware of any correlation between gray hair and diabetes.
