So basically I️ was diagnosed with Hashimotos last July. Since I’ve been on different doses of Levo, and right now my dose is 50mcg.
During the past 2-3 months however, I’ve been taking Levothyroxine many of the days with an Iron supplement, which I️ just found out INHIBITS absorption. Does this explain my accelerated hair loss during the past few months? I️ barely have hair now...I’m a male 20 yo so this sucks.
I️ just started taking Levo at night, 4 hours after my last meal so I️ can maximize absorption.
I’m awake typing this at 4am, I️ slept at 11:30. Is this normal? Is taking Levo at night considered to make you wake up early? However I️ don’t feel groggy right now, full of energy actually but I️ don’t know if this is bad or good, because I️ may not be getting enough sleep?
1. How bad was taking Iron at the same time as Levo, and is that causing my hair loss? How bad was taking Iron with Levo, and will taking it at night 4 hours after my last meal help absorption, how long will it take to see results from switching to taking Levo by itself without inhibiting agents, and will my hair grow back? I’ve lost a good chunk.
2. Is taking Levo at night known to cause early waking up, because maybe it’s starting to get to work while we’re sleeping? Maybe it starts working too early for me?
Would very much appreciate your help
