I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism in May 2013 and was put on carbimazole to combat it. It was caught early after having the shakes, being lethargic, loss of libido, constantly hungry, palpitations, mood swings and all sorts. I hadn't know what a thyroid was until then and was frightened about the whole thing.
Over time I came to terms with it despite the weight that was piling on during the time I took carbimazole and the loss of self-confidence that came with it. I was lucky enough to stop taking the tablets in March 2014 with finally being signed off as "normal" in March 2015.
I'm still trying to build my confidence back up and am always slightly concerned about the hyperthyroidism coming back. I had thought that being signed off would mean my metabolism would be the same as before, the weight would slowly but surely drop off and the thinning hair would plump out again but it's not been the case and my metabolism isn't what it was.
I regularly exercise and generally eat healthily but I'm worried that my hair will continue to get thinner and was wondering if there's anything I can do to help it. I feel very vain asking but I don't have much confidence at the best of times and my hair is the one thing I've always taken pride in and if I can do anything to boost hair growth, I'll do it.
I was wondering whether anyone has any advice about taking vitamin supplements to promote hair growth, better nails, and generally help.
All advice welcome, even if it's just to get a grip and be confident no matter what.
Thanks in advance.
