Need T3 and/or more: There is a good chance you need a higher dose of thyroid and may need to add T3 or switch to natural thyroid. Doctors often under-treat; check free T3 which should be in upper half of normal range. See http://tinyurl.com/n4zmkro

The outer part of my eyebrow is thinning out badly. I heard this was related to thyroid but I checked and it was normal. What else could cause it?

The outer part of my eyebrow is thinning out badly. I heard this was related to thyroid but I checked and it was normal. What else could cause it?

Test thyroid further: A "normal" thyroid test is very common in those who are hypothyroid! Most docs just screen with a TSH and think if below 4.5 you're fine, but many specialists consider a TSH above 3 a sign of low thyroid, and some even 2. Check Free T3 (liothyronine), (liothyronine) Reverse T3 (liothyronine) and thyroid antibodies too!

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 androgen effects of the PCOS but may not grow the eyebrow hair again. Make sure that the thyroid testing included a TSH, T3, T4, and Free Thyroid Index.(FTI) to definitely rule out thyroid disorders as a cause. ...Read more
