Hi all! My hair loss is still continuing and I've really had enough. I was diagnosed underactive a couple of years ago and don't recall complaining about hair loss leading up to diagnosis. I do however recall mentioning re sensitivity to cold. I'm on 50 mcg and told T4 is fine. Mind you, none of this makes any sense to me TSH, T4 and T3 and so on. I've been told that it's my TSH. I read Mary Shomon's book recently on hair loss as she too is hypo and has experienced hair loss which is now better. One of the things she has suggested is evening primrose which I find does nothing for me. As suggested by a member I've tried spatone which has not helped. I asked me GP if I could stop the thyroxine to see if maybe that would stop the hair loss as I know taking thyrxone can also cause hair loss. Last week she said that was fine as I was on a low does anyway and that I am to have my bloods repeated in December along with B12 check. Within myself I feel fine. It's just the hair loss that bothers. Even though I feel cold, I am no colder that then person sitting next to me at work. Please let me know what you think. Is it true that doctor's are quick to prescribe medication for thyroid problems and not get to the route of the problem as to what is causing the hypo? I'm wondering whether I should have a food allergy test in case something I'm eating is causing it. Generally I eat quite healthy and am not doing anything differently compares to before being diagnosed. Please may I have your thoughts. Sorry to go on but I would rather dealt with the hypo natural way that keep popping pills. Any suggestions? Thank you all. Jay
