Hair Loss Thyroid Problems

Dec 29, 2007
Today there could be several reasons as to why you may be starting to lose your hair even if you are young. Certainly, one of the most common reasons is because of hormonal changes taking place in your body. Whilst others could be because you do not have sufficient nutrients in your diet or you are under extreme amounts of stress (mental and physical). Finally, it could be because you have some underlying medical condition that you do not know about. One particular condition which seems to be an underlying cause for hair loss is the thyroid gland malfunctioning.

In this article, we will look at why when a person's thyroid gland does not work properly it can actually affect regrowth of a person's hair. In addition, we look at what you can do should you begin to suffer from hair loss from this type of medical problem.

Both forms of thyroid medical conditions (hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism) can be responsible for a person losing their hair prematurely. When a person suffers from either one of these then, in many cases, the process that allows a person's hair to grow begins to shut down.

This is because when a person's thyroid begins to malfunction it forces the hair follicles to remain in the dormant phase of the hair growth process for much longer than normal. This in turn results in growth of new hair being halted and so leads to the person eventually starting to lose their hair.

There are several things a person can do in order to help tackle any thyroid related hair loss problem that may be occurring. Below we look at some of the things that you can do in order to help tackle such a problem should you discover you have a problem with your thyroid glands and how they function.

Tip 1 - The first thing you should do is arrange to see a professional such as a dermatologist or a hair loss expert who will carry out tests in order to rule out any other causes for your hair loss. If you are unable to find a person who specializes in dealing with hair loss matters then contact the American Hair Loss Council.

Tip 2 - If you do have a problem with your thyroid gland and are needing to take medication to treat it, then check what side effects if any are associated with it. Drugs like Synthroid, which are used by many for any kind of thyroid problem, is noted for causing hair loss in some people. Also seek your doctor's advice as soon as possible, they may not realize that this drug and others like it cause such problems and could well suggest an alternative form of treatment.

Above we have given you an explanation as to why hair loss and thyroid problems are associated and what you could do in order to prevent your problems from getting any worse.
