Im a 19 yr old male and ive been experiencing diffuse shedding since july of 2017. I was initially told by the derma that i had Telogen Effluvium caused by stress and that i should wait for a couple of months and see if it has slowed down. Last december 2017 i went to a hair loss expert and she ran tests. I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. My TSH was 10.9. She prescribed levothyroxine (euthyrox) 25mcg and to come back in february for more tests. My hair falls like 150 strands everyime i take a shower.
After doing more research i found out that my medicine can actually stop the hair loss or make it worse. Has anybody had any success in treating hair loss related to hypothyroidism? Can i go completely bald because of this? Do you think it would be wise to start taking minoxidil? Or should i wait till my thyroid labs are balanced?
