Re: Are these signs of a thyroid problem
Welcome sillytycoo. Yes, hair loss, weight gain, and being tired are all symptoms that are sometimes associated with low thyroid function. You may want to see an Endocrinologist and have him/her test your Free T3, Free T4, TSH and thyroid antibody blood levels to see if your symptoms are associated with a thyroid problem.
Before your doctor's visit, you may want to review our Information Archive thread. It includes symptoms lists for hypo and hyper thyroid plus questions to ask a doctor and other things you and your doctor may find helpful in your discussion.
