    Hey everyone,

    I just received some lab results today and it turns out my Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies are elevated (25 when supposed to be below 9), as well as my testosterone (63; supposed to be between 2-45) and estrogen (654.5; supposed to be between 130-460). I have no idea what any of this means, but I'm assuming it's all contributing somewhat to my hair loss. I've also had low ferritin for a long time now.

    I go back to my doctor on 10/12 to discuss everything. The thyroid antibodies could be an indication of Hashimoto's disease.

    Anyone have any insights or similar experience with hormones and thyroid difficulties?

    Thanks!
