Hi, I’m after some advice as I feel I’m in a bit of a pickle!
Can hair loss with heat intolerance and sweating mean I need to reduce my Levothyroxine? I’ve been having hair loss much more than is usual for me since the end of April, coinciding with an intolerance to heat and sweating to the point that my t-shirt is wet simply from making the bed in the morning! This is when it’s not even particularly warm. Constantly throwing open the windows in an effort to cool down! I reduced from 150mcg down to 125mcg at the end of January and my test results after the reduction still show my tsh suppressed at <0.005 (0.38 - 5.33), free T4 16.4 (7.00 - 16.00) and free T3 5.00 (3.8 - 6.00). My doctor has suggested reducing to 112.5mcg which I tried for a few weeks but not long enough to test bloods as I had little appetite. Does anyone have any advice? My ferritin levels and vitamin levels have all been checked and all good. I’m losing my mind, I just want this hair loss to stop!!
