Discussions that mention synthroid

Hair Loss / Alopecia board


Hi,
I'm new to this and have also been concerned about my hair loss on another thread. Got some great replies but my mind is in over-drive researching this on the internet.

Advice is to wait until TSH stablizes, my is still at 11.8 but go to doctor tomorrow for bloodwork. I have read synthroid does cause hair loss until you reach normal levels, here's advice "Thyroid Guide & Hair Loss" give;

Be Patient (easier said than done LOL)
Understand the Types of Hair Loss
Make sure it's not your thyroid drug
Make sure you're not undertreated (could be my case)
Find out if you need second drug
Consider an alternative treatment

Hope this helps you ... :):confused:
