Thyroid Hair Loss & Symptoms

Thyroid hair loss Dallas, TX report

Rapid hair loss is one of the symptoms associated with the thyroid problem with large amounts of hair falling out in the shower or sink. The hair’s texture is dry, coarse, or easily tangled. Itchy scalp, as well as weight gain or loss, fatigue or sleeplessness, are common symptoms of the thyroid problem.

Dallas, TX hair restoration specialist, Marvin Friedman, understands that this can be extremely catastrophic to see rapid hair falling out. He explains that with Thyroid hair loss, the hair fall shows a diffused hair density on the entire scalp rather than balding areas. Most likely, the hair may be thinner above the ears, front, and at the temples. A unique characteristic symptom of hypothyroidism is a loss of the hair on the outer edge of the eyebrows. Also, there may be a general loss of body hair from areas other than the head.

First of all, the MEP90 laser is an FDA-cleared hair loss treatment and medical device for treating alopecia, as a hair therapy treatment for pattern baldness. The aim is to stop the progression of hair loss, healthier hair growth. Also, promote measurable new hair growth. Yes, many doctors prescribe low-level laser therapy as a hair loss treatment. Hence, doctors use this therapy to stimulate hair growth and prevent the progression of hair loss.

Thyroid Disorders and Hair Loss

Can you lose your hair with thyroid problems? As with all medical issues, consult with your doctor. Severe and prolonged hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can cause loss of hair. In 2008, the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism presented the first evidence that human hair follicles are direct targets of thyroid hormones. 

Regrowth is usual with successful treatment of the thyroid disorder, be patient; it will take several months. Also, it’s likely that for most, the hair loss will slow down, and eventually stop, once hormone levels are stabilized and in the normal range. Furthermore, at times the full thickness of the hair will never come back to its original pre thyroid state. Nu Hair in Dallas-Fort Worth staff recognizes that hair loss may affect how you feel about your appearance and offer individualized care and emotional support to help you feel comfortable with the way you look.

Thyroid Hormone Problems and Hair Loss

Hormonally induced hair loss takes place when an enzyme starts to convert the hormone testosterone on the scalp to dihydrotestosterone. DHT attacks the hair follicle and shrinks it. For that reason, hair becomes thinner and may stop growing entirely. This conversion of testosterone to DHT seems to be sped up in some patients with thyroid problems such as hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.

Make Sure It's Not Your Thyroid Drug

Your thyroid medication. Prolonged or excessive hair loss is a side effect of thyroid medications. If you are taking levothyroxine (i.e., Synthroid, Levoxyl, Unithroid) as your thyroid hormone replacement, and still losing hair, you may need to talk to your doctor again. Prolonged or excessive hair loss is a side effect of these drugs for some people. Thyroid hair loss can also result from being undertreated, or not take the right medications for you.

About Alternative Treatment

The book, Living Well With Hypothyroidism, recommends “evening primrose oil (also known as EPO)” is a nutritional supplement.  In his book, “Solved: The Riddle of Illness,” Stephen Langer, M.D. recommends evening primrose oil, for symptoms of insufficient fatty acid which are very similar to hypothyroidism. He writes that primrose oil is an excellent source of essential fatty acids. According to Dr. Blanchard: “For hair loss, I routinely recommend multiple vitamins, and especially evening primrose oil. Evening primrose oil is an inhibitor of that conversion. So almost anybody with hair loss probably will benefit from evening primrose oil.”

Finally, if you have an excessive hair loss, seek a doctor’s medical advice early to check on a possible cause why your hair is falling out. Correct diagnostic taking corrective adverse events on hair loss is especially critical at the onset of hair loss symptoms to prevent scarring and large balding areas from being permanent damage.

Will MEP90 Laser Treatments Work For You? Dallas-Fort Worth

Various factors will influence whether or not laser light therapy will work for you. These factors include; first, how soon you begin the treatment after hair loss occurs, secondly, your body’s response to the procedures. Most importantly, compliance with your treatment plan is a must. Thriving, healthy regrowth of hair also depends on upon the number of cells that are merely dormant versus those that have lost the ability to regrow hair. Indeed, with laser treatments, look for hair to be softer, shinier, and healthier looking within the first few weeks of treatments.
