Re: Why is my hair so thin?

Have you had your thyroid checked? If you have a family history of thyroid disease, you're at higher risk for having it yourself. Do you have menstrual irregularities such as missed periods? Something called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is associated with symptoms such as scalp hair loss, excess body hair, tendency to be overweight or gain weight easily, cysts on ovaries. Of course, it may be something totally different but just throwing out some thoughts as to what it may be. I know how hard it can be to lose a lot of hair. I lost a lot after a hysterectomy.
