Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism if not well controlled causes multiple symptoms including hair fall & dry hair, dry skin. With adequate dose of thyroxine, TSH should be brought down around 3 to 4 m/L then only you will be free from all the symptoms. Hair fall takes a bit longer to stop. Treatment is for lifetime. Should not be stopped in between. TSH should be checked periodically to ensure that it is maintained as mentioned earlier. There's no special diet. You have to avoid soy beans, soy containing foods. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads & fruits. Always use whole grain flour for roti & chapati. Do not eat items made from maida. Thanks.
