Hey guys, just saw my therapist, and wanted to share with everybody what she said about hair loss. She's not an MD, but she does have a Ph.D., and is just a very bright/informed person in general. She also did her dissertation on women's hormones and their impact on emotions while working for an ob/gyn, so she knows a lot about hormones, dysfunction, imbalances, etc. She told me to get my T3, T4, and reverse T3 tested, even though I've already had my TSH and T4 tested once without any indication of dysfunction. She says that doctors are very quick to dismiss possible thyroid issues, and for anyone experiencing hair loss, a complete and thorough thyroid screen should be done. In her case, she suffered hair loss due to high reverse T3, which didn't become apparent because initially only TSH was tested. She basically said in range TSH doesn't rule out thyroid dysfunction; it's only a measure of one hormone, and there are others that should be screened. Once she addressed the problem with thyroid medication, her hair grew back. She's got the thickest hair for someone of her age. I'm going to make sure my GP orders a full thyroid panel this week. She also said that she had bad experiences with dermatologists when she went through her hair loss episode. She said that a GP will be more likely to order the proper tests.
