My 7 year old daughter has started losing hair. She loses loads when washing or brushing it. I took her to the doctors and he sent her for a blood test. The full blood count came back fine, but apparently the thyroid one was out of normal range.
Now, bear with me as I don't understand this, but he said the levels of thyroxine were fine. It was the TSH levels that were high, so the thyroid was having to work a bit harder? He ummed and aahed about sending her for another test, and said it might come back fine next time, but I'm absolutely frantic about her hair loss.
Does anyone have any advice please? We are back at the doctors tomorrow and I would like to be a bit better informed before we go so I know what I need to ask about. Thank you.
