Outer hairs on left eyebrow are falling out. Clear thyroid blood testing (not sure if full panel), PCOS sufferer, just started Yaz birth control to treat PCOS. Should I get more thyroid tests? Could PCOS cause this? Will Yaz help grow my hair back?
Maybe, maybe not: Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) will block some of the androgen effects of the PCOS but may not grow the eyebrow hair again.

These things cannot be confirmed without blood tests. Other thyroid diseases, such as nodular disease and cancer cannot be identified alone by blood test but require physical exam, possibly ultrasound, and possibly biopsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Had bloods taken today the code was tfgps (not on t4) i have looked on the Internet but cannot find this blood test code. Thank you?
That code doesn't: exist in the US. More importantly what medical conditions are you being treated for? That would answer it alone. We need more info in your profile that's missing.
