Thyroid and biotin : Biotin can interfere with the accuracy of thyroid testing and management. I recommend you speak with your provider about alternatives for hair loss that do not involve Biotin. Scalp massage, avoidance of chemical coloring/perms, shampoo about 2-4 times per week (not daily), good nutritional intake and hydration, as well as regular exercise are safe options for now

Hair loss : You will want to discuss your hair loss with your physician. You can review your current treatment plan. The doctor can determine if any other testing is needed and assess the degree of hairloss. Then, a treatment plan can be recommended.
