Hi Everyone,

I have recently had test would really appreciate advice.

I have been diagnosed with B12 deficiency and currently have 11 weekly injections, I have been suffering from increased hair loss over the last few months hence decided to have thyroid check. Test results:

Tsh 1.99

Free Throxine. 15

Total throxine (T4). 93.5

Free T3. 4.18

Thyroglobulin antibody 65.2

Thyroid peroxidase antibodies. 129

Any advice would really be appreciated, I know B12 can cause hair loss but seems to be shedding at an alarming rate plus other symptoms body aches.

There is a few deficiencies that could cause hair loss, have you had iron and vitamin D tested recently?, as it's not your blood results in the thread.


As I now know that they are your results, yes vitamin D is too low. According to the vitamin D council it should be around 100 to be a healthy level. And yes, low vitamin D can cause hair loss and body aches.
