Discussions that mention synthroid

Hair Loss / Alopecia board

Hello Mrs R!!
I am new to these boards and I suffer from the same hair problem as you. We females care so much about our hair that when it starts falling out, it's hard to deal with. I have been dianosed for a year now with hypo and am on 150 mcg of Synthroid. It has helped a little, but every time I brush my hair the brush is still full of hair. I sometimes wonder why I'm not bald already. When I look at pictures from 5 years back, I can't believe how thin my hair has become.
I just want you to know that you aren't alone out there and we are all hoping for a miracle cure. I pray we get one soon.
Love to you and yours:cool:
