    hashi's and dead thyroid?

    my endo told me my thyroid is DEAD.
    which is good news kinda, because now i won't go up and down all the time like i was before.
    and my TSH is now normal.
    so why am i still losing my hair and still feel horrible??
    what can hashi's do if your thyroid is dead?

    It obviously isn't enough that your TSH is "normal". Thyroid levels should be adjusted to Your personal needs - it's not enough that your TSH is just "within range". You need to look at your free thyroid levels (FT4 and FT3) too. What was your TSH level? It often needs to be around 1 (or even lower).
