I was diagnosed in June 2012 as Hypothyroid. My doctor actually laughed when he told me and mentioned that I should be in hospital as my reading were so low-high. I have asked him a couple of times since June what my readings were but just couldnt remember what he told me, going back in January so will defo write it down this time.
I had all the symptons that go with Hypothyroid and the two that probably stress/ed me the most were/are the hair loss and weight gain.
My hair was coming out in hand fulls, I could have cried every time I washed my hair. My hairdresser recommended a treatment called Nioxide, she actually gave me the starting kit for free, she was so confident of the product. It may not suit everyone but after 4 wks of use my hair stopped falling out (had really fine hair to start with). The reason I post this is that if it helps one other person it's worth posting. I take 150mg of levothyroxine and my hair is not falling out any more. I use the shampoo every 2nd day and will continue to use it I guess for a long while. It is avail in salons or online in the UK, but it is not cheap unfortunately but defo worth it. This is definately not an advert.....
I am now looking for some advice about a vegetarian diet that will help me shift the horrendous weight I have put on. Any advice welcome. Thanks
