lybrate-user ji, Thanks for the query. I am sure you must be already on treatment for hypothyroidism, if so please let me know the dosage being taken and current or latest T3, T4 & TSH levels. In a well controlled person TSH is maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, at that level all the symptoms are in check including hair loss. That happens to be the last symptom to get corrected. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

Get your TSH test done and correct the dose of thyroxin if required. Take balanced diet. Exercise regularly. Avoid mental tension.
