Do Women Go Bald If They Have Hypothyroid
What to do if I have woment pattern baldness and hypothyroidism. my hair is thinning day by day very fast. is amway helpful?
First things first: Manage your hypothyroidism. Failure to do this will cost you your health, your work, and ultimately your life. I'm glad you were diagnosed and hope your treatment is easy. This being done, I suspect you may also have telogen effluvium and should be seen by a competent dermatologist. ...Read more
The thyroid gland is an endocrine organ located in the front part of the neck. Its role is to make thyroid hormones, which control the way cells use energy. Hyperthyroidism results when the thyroid gland is overactive and too much thyroid hormone is produced, which speeds up metabolism. This results in weight loss, a quick heartbeat, sweating, nervousness, ...Read more

Pregnancy can: Lead to hair loss, which usually returns after delivery. Hypothyroidism leads to hair breakage, not loss -- and the hair will grow out normally after your thyroid level is normalized with brand name replacement only. Have your thyroid level checked at intervals during your pregnancy, as your needs for replacement can change frequently during this time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
14wks pregnant have hypothyroid found in 2 month taking levothyroxin 50mcg hair falling out in clumps and everywhere feel like soon ill have bald spot?
When I was hypothyroid(n didn't knw abt it),I had taken Diane 35 for my acne n hair loss. N it helped. But I heard bcps r bad for hypo women?
They're not bad: BCP are not any different for hypothyroid women than for any other woman: they are safe. Women who should not take BCP - regardless of thyroid - are those over 35, with hypertension, smokers, and concerns about estrogen-dependent growths. Thyroid patients are no different, good wishes. ...Read more
If a hypothyroid woman is on birth control pills alone(no levothyroxine), would it improve some of her symptoms like acne or hair loss?
Odd question: If she has low thyroid she will clearly benefit from thyroid therapy. Why not??? The specific type of birth control is significant. Some hormones reduce acne and improve hair problems. Some hormones (androgenic progesterones) aggravate acne and cause loss of scalp hair. All 3 of your meds reduce acne and reduce loss of scalp hair. For polycystic ovary, weight loss and perhaps metformin are useful. ...Read more
Hypothyroid after adding raw broccoli to diet last year, quit eating it 2 months ago and my symptoms cleared up apart from hair loss, will it regrow ?
FORGET ALL THIS: Broccoli, raw or cooked, has nothing to do with thyroid. In fact, NO FOOD CAUSES LOW THYROID. You neglected to mention why you think you had hypothyroid or what your symptoms were. Look around and see how many men your age have lost scalp hair. If you think you have a medical problem, see a Dr. ...Read more
My TSH fluctuates goes to 5.5 with 12.5 mcg comes down to .27 on 25mcg. anti thyroid antibodies +ve. how to titrate.only hair loss no hypothyroid symp?
Dosing: Hi. Most systems are not that sensitive! I would suggest trying 12.5 mcg on even days of the month and 25 mcg on odd days of the mont. This will give you an average daily dose of 18.75 mcg, and should give you a nice, normal TSH. But to reiterate, most systems are not that sensitive. Make sure you're well equilibrated (dose at least 6 weeks) before testing. Good luck! ...Read more
