Hi..I had total thyroidectomy in 2006, and am on levothyroxine this has recently been reduced to 100g from 125mg as I told my doctor I am suffering from hair loss...I tried the reduced dose for 10 days and there is no improvement, so I went back and he basically told me he doesn't know what to say! He said he doesn't have a miracle cure but took a blood test for iron deficiency...I haven't had hair loss before but I did have a major appendix operation in March due to an undiagnosed rupture and abscess, also I lost my mum on 9th June so I'm wondering if it could be partly stress related. What can I do though, the worry about my hair may sound trivial but it's scaring me and so I'm probably stressing more...is there a vitamin I can take as although I asked my doctor this he hadn't got a clue it seems. Sorry for long post but I'm so worried...
