Biotin is a vitamin commonly used for hair loss, brittle nails, and other dermatologic conditions. There is some evidence that diabetes and smoking cigarettes can cause low biotin levels. Some signs of deficiency include thinning of the hair (frequently with loss of hair color), a red rash around the eyes, nose, and mouth, depression, tiredness, and hallucinations. Ask one of our pharmacists if biotin supplementation could be helpful.
