Since the ending of 2015 I was experiencing hairloss but did not know what the cause was. In September 2016 I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, I read that hairloss is a symptom of thyroid disease, before I was diagnosed in September my hair came out in handfuls and its thin but mostly at the front. The first doctor I went by told me to take 10mg of carbimazole a day but another doctor told me to take 5mg so I stuck with the 5mg for a month but I was still unwell and decided to take 10 mg a day. Since taking 10mg I am feeling much better and my hairloss has slowed down. The only concern I have is will the hair I lost grow back?
