This http://www.petdiabetes.net/Health&Diet/Health-hairloss.html just says that it's common and is usually slowed down or stopped when the diabetes is under control.

But it does appear that alopecia can be caused by a number of illnesses.

Brenda ~ if it gives you peace of mind CALL. No harm, no foul right?

Given that he has no other symptoms ~ it likely is nothing to worry about. Age, a little stress ~ heck, even I'M losing hair !!! :D
