Hello. I have noticed since starting Armour Thyroid that my hair has suddenly gone very thin. I have had thyroid problems for years but have always had very thick hair, including when I was trying out T4 and T3. I am gradually building up Armour and am still taking 20 mcg T3. I am currently on half a grain of Armour. My energy is improving, but my hair has suddenly gone very thin in the past month since I went up from a quarter to a half grain.
I have just moved to a hard water area which isn't helping my hair, but I think the loss is down to armour judging from what I've read.
If this has happened to you - did it grow back? And why does it happen?
I am perplexed by how I can be feeling so much better and looking so much worse! The tight curls are becoming loose straggly things - presumably because there is not enough hair to hold the curl. I have some normally curly hair and then these weird long thin strands of straggle which look appalling. Having to wear my hair up to disguise the mess and now only need a small hair clip to hold it up!
Any advice gratefully received.
