: : : I just started armour a few days ago. Can anyone give me some insight on how long it takes before my hair will stop falling out? This is so distressing. I have Hashimotos. My antibody level was very high.
: : Hi Dale,
: : I didn't have any hair loss after I had my RAI done and for about 2 months after I became hypothyroid. I then started experiencing alot of hair loss. I guess I had been taking synthroid for close to two months when it started. Then about a month ago, my hair stopped falling out. I guess it can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months for it to stop falling out. Some people even a year, but the average is 3 months. It will all grow back too. Apparently the hair follicles get damaged from being hypo, so once the hair from those follicles is all done falling out and they recover, the hair will come back in.
: : best of luck to you

: Lynn, Thanks so much for responding. You gave me some hope.
Hi to Dale and all others with hair loss problems.
I thought I would mention another possiblity in case you are taking calcium.NEVER,NEVER take it with Synthroid wait several hours .There is an interaction that can cause hair loss.
I recently read this in Joe Graedons pharmacy column in the Sarasota Herald Tribune an August issue.(forgot date)
