If you need Armour thyroid, there will be many more symptoms than just hair loss. You may need to up your synthroid dose. Drs tend to prescribe the lowest dose that gets you in to the normal range. You may need more. My hair loss stopped for years but is now quite extensive although I have been on Armour Th for many years (10?) now. It may have something to do with menopause. I have nightmares about going bald. There must be some psychological reason for these dreams because I can think of a lot worse things that could go wrong with me besides hair loss. My hairdresser showed me how they can clip extra hair to the top of your head and it looks great. However, I wish I didn’t have all these problems.
Hello everyone. I have recently seen several postings which have mentioned people experiencing hair loss. I am to be included in that group being almost 2 years post RAI. I am searching for an answer to why this is happening since I was originally told by my doc that it was unrelated to GD especially since I am in the “normal range”. I am going back to the endo. on Tuesday to discuss other hormone levels and will pursue this further. Anyone out there have this problem that has gotten better or been corrected with meds or supplements. Always anxious to know more. Thanks and good luck to all — Julie T.
