Has anyone experience hair miniaturization due to thyroid condition/thyroid meds? Do the hairs eventually return to normal size once hormone levels are stabilized? I lost alot of hair (possible Telogen Effluvium) from thyroid meds. Very little regrowth, and the new hairs are "miniaturized"- what does this mean?
Not sure what you mean by "minaturization". I had a lot of hair loss before I was diagnosed. I take a B12 shot every two weeks and that helped tremendously. Also helped with my nails that would break off into nail bed. However, the hair loss has started again. I still take a B12 shot every two weeks. My endo doc added monthly estrogen shots to help. However, I have seen no results yet after three months. Hope he has some new idea to help when I go back to him in September.
I had TE last year, loss huge amounts of hair, once my levels went back to normal hair stop falling and grew back, a lot of volume but not really a style yet, my hair is curly so it takes an awful amount of time to look long. I had hair loss again a few weeks ago when I changed my medication but is slowing down once again. I cut it so it looks more full and I see small grows. It takes time sadly.
