As far as I know diabetes may cause thinning of the hair and in some cases hair loss. In your daughters  case more background information is needed to rule out diabetes as a cause; how much hair loss your daughter is experiencing [is it just some thinning; is it in globs]; if this started after Metformin. Those of us who never have had to take Metformin before do experience some hair loss [thinning] with the introduction of these chemicals into our bodies.

I suggest you read through this link for some helpful tips on hair loss not related to diabetes, including the link under References, "Hair loss in teens."

Lastly, I suggest you seek consultation with a Dermatologist for basic testing to determine if the origin of the problem is hormonal, dietary, disease related [diabetes], drug related [Metformin, etc], stress-induced or the result of physical activities. Many hair loss problems are resolved with simple therapies. Good luck
