i have been diagnosed as hypothyroid since december but only started levothyroxine 3 weeks ago. I have had dry skin particularly on hands and some weight gain (7lbs) but the hair loss is really getting me down now. Iv e been losing since the summer and the highest TSH recorded was on 9.8 but my ferritin was 4.
I am 40 this year and a mum of 3 but the hair loss is starting to make me feel really depressed. Doctors all say different things but I am worried that such low ferritin is not helping the levo do its stuff and in fact the hair loss has got worse. i feel i will never stop losing hair and get out of this horrid guessing game of what to do and what to take etc
