Hi all, I am new posting to this website but have been reading with interest for some time!
I have been suffering with hair loss for several months which is getting worse. I had bloods back in oct which were 4.86 tsh and 12 T4 ( they didn't test t3 or antibodies).
I have just started on levothyroxine 50mg. I asked the doctor could my ferritin level if 50 also affect hair loss as my thyroid results were not that drastic to cause so much hair loss ( about 30% of hair is gone, if not more ..) I loose at the root with a white bulb on end and no regrow the. She said no as my ferritin is 50 but some websites say it should be higher? She said she had never even heard of this connection...
I am loosing weight unless I try and increase the amount I am eating and tired all the time.
Has anyone else has experience with hair loss with sub clinical hypothyroidism?
Thank you for any help at all,
