DOES NDT MAKE YOUR HAIR FALL OUT???

I wondered if anyone else has hair loss using NDT. The thing is my hair started to fall out last September at EXACTLY the same time i started to use Armour thyroid....its continued right up to date and I'm on Thiroyd NDT from Thailand which I've taken religiously since May, my TSH is down to 0.64 and I'm feeling so much better but my hair is painful to look at now its vile dry thin and disgusting....is this the way things are from now on?

Should i look at getting my medications changed? or should i stick with this a little bit longer as i know that hair goes in cycles and can take up to 3 months to begin to recover??

CAN ANYONE HELP????

When l was on NDT, hair regrowth was the only good thing about it, for me! How's your iron? Taking NDT might be highlighting a ferritin problem.

NO! Its a common symptom of under active thyroid.
