I am a thyroid patient - I have facing problems on hair loss any remedies.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
YOU CAN USE HAIR OIL MENOXIDIL APPLY ON HAIR TWICE A WEEK. Some physicians feel that ferritin levels -- ferritin is the stored form of iron -- are integral to healthy hair growth, and that levels that are not optimal may contribute to hair loss, or impede hair regrowth. Have your ferritin levels checked, and if not optimal -- Sara Gottfried, MD says that levels below 80 are not optimal for thyroid patients suffering hair loss -- talk to your doctor about supplementing with iron.In some cases, your dermatologist may recommend that you try drug treatments. The two popular drugs for hair loss -- Rogaine and Propecia -- both interfere with DHT's ability to destroy hair follicles. Neither drug is safe to use during pregnancy, however, and so they are not as commonly used in women of child-bearing age. Rogaine, the brand name for minoxidil, is available without a prescription. Women typically use a 2% minoxidil solution applied to the scalp twice a day, and men use a 5% solution. Improvements with minoxidil are slow - it may take months to see any improvement, and a year or more for any dramatic change in hair loss and regrowth. To maintain improvements, minoxidil needs to be continued daily. Propecia, the brand name for finasteride, is a prescription drug taken in pill form. It is not to be used by women in child-bearing years because of its ability to cause serious birth defects, but it has been shown to help some women. Propecia does not, however, appear to be any more effective than minoxidil, and like minoxidil, it can take a year to see results, and must be taken for life to maintain regrowth.

When my wife was pregnant thyroid test result got positive. After 2 months it get abortion. Now she is normal. How to detect thyroid? What are the symptoms of it?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, it is better to get thyroid assay done as soon as pregnancy is test becomes positive. If tsh level is above 4 - 5 milli unit, then, immediate treatment with appropriate dose of thyroxine should be started. Tsh levels should be maintained between 0.2 to 2.5 milli units through out the pregnancy. This will prevent adverse outcomes of pregnancy.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if a person is not having diabetes, then consuming a good quantity fruits is welcome. There is no restriction. All fruits are good. But for a person with diabetes fruits like mango, banana, chikkoo and grapes are not good as they are too sweet. Other fruits like papaya, pomegranate, apple, pear, guava, orange, sweet lime and water melon are permitted. However, a daily intake of about 100 g is recommended that too with good blood sugar control. Excess fruits in diabetes are not advisable. Thanks for the question.
