Autoimmunity: Most thyroid problems are due to autoimmunity, where your immune system makes antibodies that target your own proteins & tissues. Some people w/ autoimmune thyroid disease have other autoimmune conditions as well. One such condition is premature graying. Unfortunate not much can be done to stop this.

Gray hair: First thing to know is that genetics plays the biggest role in early graying- we can't change our genetics. To reduce risks of early graying & hair loss: 1. Don't Smoke. 2. Correct Zinc, Vit B or other nutritional deficiencies. Vegans are at risk for Vit B12 deficiencies. 3. Ensure that your thyroid is healthy. 4. Diets> Eggs are rich in biotin. Dark greens are high in Vit A & C. Omega 3 fatty
