I am waiting on my latest set of test results so I know what I need to try next!! Main problem apart from fatigue and brain fog is hair loss. I did have very thick luxuriant hair before hypo started so its not been a life long problem - something has triggered this.
In my endless quest to try and fiix myself I have found that I have low DHEA (very low), I have adrenal problems, although that appears to be improving due to lifestyle changes, low Vit D - also improving due to supplementation.
However hair has not recovered at all and is getting thinner with no eyebrows at all either!! Possible causes:
1) it is because I am not on right dose of T4 and T3 (I guess latest tests will give more info) 2) it is because my DHEA is so low (I may have to supplement again)
3) but one other possible cause that has popped up is low progesterone.
Lastest test result on progesterone just said serum progesterone 0.7nmol no range given. does that sound low?
Second question - if I take DHEA to get my levels up, will that aid repair of adrenals, progresterone levels and therefore thyroid uptake or do you have to invidually supplement each and every hormone?
Sorry - long questions...!
