Causes of nail chipoff and bending weak nails?

Often Age: As we get older, our nails often become more brittle and thin. Taking extra biotin, a safe supplement, has been shown to make nails thicker and stronger.

Iam 37female all the time i feel generalized weakness. Haemoglobin 14gm whate is the cause? Thyroid function is normal no chronic illness no drug

Not certain...: A hemoglobin level of 14 is essentially normal for an adult woman. Weakness is a pretty generalized complaint and is best evaluated by examining the patient directly and ordering some lab tests to try to narrow down what could be causing it. Don't get discouraged, sometimes it can take some time for the disease to progress, and the cause to be identified. ...Read more

Can b12 cause thyroid problem or can thyroid problem cause b12 deficiency.I'm b12 deficiency since December 2014. Today I feel weak,lightheaded etc?

If you feel lightheadedness, you should see your physician right away to get checked for possible anemia from B12 or iron deficiency. You can also get your thyroid hormone levels checked as well. Drink lots of water and take B complex vitamins with breakfast ...Read more

What causes hair to falling out?
Take vitamins and Biotin but have weak nails and falling out hair:(

May be hypothyroid: Hypothyrooidism is a common condition that often causes hair loss (hyperthyroidism may cause too but less commonly). Unfortunately many docs don't diagnose it properly, thinking someone is normal unless their TSH is 4.5 or higher when most who are hypothyroid have "normal" TSH's. A holistic/integrative doc will do more exhaustive tests. See http://tinyurl.com/koyamo5 and http://tinyurl.com/pxz8mkd ...Read more

Been having consistent low blood pressure on a daily basis since I had my baby . What conditions can cause this? My thyroid is normal . Feeling weak .

See your doctor.: Could be due to blood loss, if there was much during child birth. Lots of other possibilities. Not possible to determine much without full exam and workup.

6th day of therapy(levothiroxine 25mg, liothyronine 2drops) cause my thyroid is lazy.I feel sick, palpitation, weakness, dispnea.Is it due to therapy?

Liothyronine: Your symptoms could be due to overtreatment of your thyroid, especially with the use of liothyronine, which is a fast-acting thyroid hormone that can cause palpitations and other symptoms of hyperthyroid. Drops? How much in a drop? This is a very unusual form of treatment. But your condition may be complicated, and i cannot diagnose this on-line. See your doctor. ...Read more
