    Not sure about Armour Thyroid but in underactive thyroid, you surely get thinning of hair and then start loosing it if not controlled if thyroid is not fixed.

    You sure these are not the the old bad hair which are just falling out so new one can grow back? Oh well hope so

    Re: Armour Thyroid and Hair Loss

    Vit D also causes hair thining and so does zinc, if you are metabolising faster you might be showing up your deficiencies now that you are on armour.

    Have you had any of these tested?

    lotsa luv

    Re: Armour Thyroid and Hair Loss

    Do you mean defiiciency of Vitamin D and Zinc Dawn or too much Vit D?

    I am sure it's deficiency but just want to confirm. I havent been taking any Vit D as I thought it's all sunny now a days so Vit D will be produced by itself . You reckon it's worth trying?

    Hiya hon
    Yes it is deficiency of D, a hypo is more likely to get this for some reason. Also a dark skinned person more likely to get it.
    Needs are lots of sunshine and the darker the skin the longer required. Also lots of oily fish and dark green veg. You may be ok, but they now are saying that a person living at our lattitude needs to supplement in some way anyway because we have to get through the winter on the reserves we get in summer. Lets face it, England doesn;t generally overburden us with sunshine for a great deal of the year does it?
    lol
    I would ask the Dr for a test before it gets to the stage mine has.
    lotsa luv
