    Hi All, I am dealing with hair loss at the roots, and I am desperately trying to figure out the cause. Background: I was diagnosed last September with Hashimoto's after about 1/6 of my hair all fell out at the roots. I had a bunch of blood tests done, and the significant results were: TSH...

  5. Additional Problems From Thyroid Disease
    My hair has been falling out quite a bit since mid/late June. July was really bad. It seems like it's tapered off in the last couple weeks or so, but my hair is just looking thin, sparse and flat. Especially near the front and top. It has also been much drier and more brittle in the last year or...

    I just started taking glandular thyroid this week. Does anyone know if it will help my hair loss, if so how long will it take until it stops falling out? I was thinking of trying a DHT blocker like NuHair. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Hello! I am 30 years old, and have had Hypothyroid (Hashimotos) since the age of 23. It has been very uneventful until last year. In November 2009 my TSH was high so my PCP increased my Synthroid dosage from .137 to .150. My TSH was at 10 (I think this was because I had been mindlessly...
