It depends why you lost your hair. Is it due to low T3? Or something else? Low iron, for example.

As you say you collect your T3 tomorrow, I presume you've had it prescribed. If it has been prescribed, I presume it is because you need it - it's not just about hair. So, I don't understand why you would hesitate to take it. I think we need more information to be able to answer your question. For example, do you have any lab results you can post on here, with the ranges?


No1 knows y i lost my hair. I have a prog dr and asked 4 it. He wasnt goin 2 giv me it. He gave me it based on my anyibodie and because i said i was devastated by d hair loss.


Well, that's the way it usually is. People rarely know why they have lost their hair. That is why no-one can answer your question.

I lost my hair, too. All of it. It all just fell out one day, in the shower. Never did find out why, but I was on T3 only at the time. So, it wasn't lack of T3. We just have to try these things and see if they work.

However, no-one can possibly say whether or not you need T3 without see your labs.


What are your recent Thyroid levels and Vitamin D, folate, ferritin and B12 ?

If you post results and ranges members can advise


Also sex hormones if you have had them done as a very common reason for hair loss in both men and women is aromatisation of Testosterone into DHT. If it is that, one of the hairloss shampoos based on regaine/minoxidil might work.


All good i have previously posted them.

Question about rt3 ratio. Mine is 19.08 the range was 15.01 to 70 is it ok high or low?
