Since being diagnosed with hypothyroidism (TSH 6.8) 2 years ago I have been treated with Levothyroxine starting at 25mcg which has now been increased to 100 and 125mcg on alternate days. My hair has gone from being thick strong and curly to very fine and thin. I lose on average 300 hairs a day. I've spent hundreds on private trichologist and dermatologist but have not seen any improvement. Is it the levothyroxine - should I try armour thyroid? Is this just a syptom of thee autoimmune disorder? Or am I not on the right dose of Levothyroxine? Now my TSH is around 1.3 and I don't really have any other symptoms than the hairloss and itchy sore scalp. Any suggestions would be much appreciated?
