Hair loss, could this be thyroid problem?

I am going out of my mind with my hair loss! this started a few months after I had my youngest son who is now 6. I have seen my family practitioner and tests on TSH and DHEA have been run and they always tell me they are normal. a couple of weeks ago i was referred to a dermatologist (again) and the following tests were run;
Free t3 2.83 (2.3-4.2)
t3 125 (87-167)
t3 uptake 29 (31-39) low
free t4 1.11 (0.8-1.80)
tsh 1.31 (0.34-4.82)
DHEA 204 (40-325)
testosterone <20
testoterone free shows results of unable to calculate due to to low or greater than line arity?

symptoms are- hair loss, you can actually see it. my doctor called it alopecia.
itchi scalp, dizziness when get up (sometimes), forgetfulness, palpitations, breathlessness, and very cold extremities (feet in particular)

anyone out there have any ideas of what could be going on? out of all the tests above the only thing I see is low t3 uptake and some of the other tests on the low side.

HELP!! I know I am not crazy and at 34 there has to be something going on.

i could not understand the test you wrote but i could suggest you one home remedy take aloe vera stemp cut it horizontally fill it with fenugreek seeds rap it in a with cloth and keep it for 2-3 days after that you can see white roots coming out from it take it out and boil that with hair oil that you use eg. coconut oil use that oil to your roots it would very effective. Try it!!!!!
