Hi all, I'm in perimenopause (49) and have had hair falling out (varying in intensity) for a couple of years now, and recession and thinning for about five years. I'm very worried about it. My TSH was recently at 3.8, after being around 2-2.5 most of my adult years. I've also had lots of fatigue with periods (which may have ended, not sure). So, new hormone doctor thought Armour Thyroid might help more than the other thyroid supplement (some kind of dessicated thyroid) I was on. Has something like Armour helped anyone's hair loss? I know the loss of ovary function can affect thyroid (or, it's all connected--I forget how) and adrenals, too...but, well, I'm hesitant to try something that strong (or is it?). Also, I've been told (by a few people, including docs) that going gluten-free (and sugar free) can help thyroid, so maybe changing diet is my first step? Thanks for advice! I know it's such a complicated subject.
