: Can alopecia be caused by Hypo or synthroid? Is there a natural alternative to synthroid? I can not take herbs because I'm allergic to salycilates and yellow dye. Reaching my saturation level to both was caused by taking 1.0 mill. of synthroid for a couple of years, so my doctor switched me to two .05 mills instead. This is something others may want to consider doing before they reach that saturation level.
Cindy-I had a hair loss problem when my med were wrong (Hypo)and I used Nioxin shampoo, conditioner and tonic I got it through my stylist. It really helped with hair growth along with getting my meds at the right level. I now have a healthy head of hair. When were you last tested and were you Hypo at that time? If so it may take a while to get the meds leveled.
Ask your pharmacist or doctor to look up in the PDR what are the side effects of synthroid. Look at all even the low %. This may help you to convince your doc to try the natral thyroid if your levels are normal.
I wish you the best.
