Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more
25 yr F, hair loss from Hashimotos. Why does Womens Rogaine (minoxidil) have heart warnings, safe for average user? Suggestions for hair loss? Armour Thyroid Rx.
4mos post Rad/Chemo 4HNC. TSH rising now 5.02. Loosing hair. RX Levothyroxine, 50mcg causes hair loss. Would I be better w Armour thyroid-treats T3 (liothyronine)?
More info: Hi. I'm not here to guess. Is HNC head and neck cancer? I hate to assume. If so, squamous? All this assumption. You may need more thyroid hormone. Armour (desiccated cadaveric pig thyroid extract) is no better, and certainly less predictable than l-thyroxine. If you prefer Armour, go for it, but effects are the same. Whatever you have, good luck! ...Read more

Armour thyroid: Not better - just as good.Get a more detailed answer ›
How can I speed up my metabolism when I don't have a thyroid? Do I have a metabolism? I'm taking Armour Thyroid and levoxyl (thyroxine). I'm eating right and walking everday but I can't seem to lose weight.
Levothyroxine.: Levothyroxine, generic form of synthroid, has many advantages over armour thyroid. The armour product has significant batch to batch variation and has T3 (liothyronine) in it. Since the T3 (liothyronine) portion of armour has a very quick onset and short duration, it can wreak havoc with the ability to effectively treat hypothyroidism. Until there is a long-acting form of T3 (liothyronine) available, stick to levothyroxine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Doctor recommended Armour Thyroid for borderline TSH saying it's better than synthroid, (thyroxine) why?
I've been taking Synthroid (thyroxine) (or Armour Thyroid) since 2012. However, I'm still tired, cold a lot & am struggling a bit to maintain my usual weight.
HYPOTHYROIDISM: HYPOTHYROIDISM can cause a myriad of symptoms. In women it can cause weight gain /fatigue/dysfunctional uterine bleeding resulting in a secondary anemia. I have better success with Armour thyroid and try to get TSH<1. Additionally Cytomel (T3) can be added. Also gluten free diet (WHOLEAPPROACH.

What can I use to replace Armour Thyroid meds? .I do not tolerate Synthroid (thyroxine) or levitroid?
I've been on Synthroid (thyroxine) for about 13 years and I only felt good a small portion of that time. Is Armour Thyroid worth a try? My labs are good but I have all the hypo symptoms
Low dose T3 (liothyronine): The symptoms of hypothyroidism can also be found in other conditions so further evaluation would be in order if TSH is normal. That being said, the addition of a low dose of liothyronine (T3) sometimes results in an improved sense of well being in hypothyroid patients. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Will taking pumpkin seed oil supplements 1000mg for hair loss, negatively effect my thyroid functioning? I have hypothyroidism taking 75mcg synthyroid
Not studied: Hi. No one has studied the effect of pumpkin seed oil (PSO) on thyroid function; just like no one has studied its effect on hair loss! So take PSO to your heart's content; you're enriching some snake oil salesperson, but I seriously doubt it will have any effect on your thyroid function tests or l-thyroxine dose. Good luck! ...Read more

Why am I having hair loss and my TSH level are normal? Can it be my Synthroid (thyroxine) medicine?
Not thyroid: There are many causes of hair loss. Abnormal thyroid levels can cause hair loss, but most cases of hair loss are due to other things, including stress, genetics, vitamin deficiency, diet, adequate sleep.

Can the synthroid levothryoxine cause hair loss as a side effect? I have Hashimoto's and I'm afraid to take the medication for fear of losing my hair
Take medication: You are more likely to lose hair from hypothyroidism than from taking thyroxine. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
