I was diagnosed with Hashimotos over the summer but none of the doctors have put me on any medication. I’ve started having extreme hair loss over the past few days which I’m not sure if it’s related to thyroid problems or alopecia. It do have patchy hair loss but also just seems to be overall thinning. I’ve been very tired too on a regular basis. Is there anything that anyone has done to go into remission? The doctors are not treating me for it at all since they said my thyroid is not damaged though I have all the symptoms. Other than medicine are there any treatments anyone can recommend ?

      Your iron and/or ferritin levels could be low. Hair loss and thinning is a common symptom of low iron. My doctor had me take a metabolic panel and tested all my vitamin levels and found that I had low ferritin.

      The meds are for if your thyroid is destroyed. It sounds like the doctors don’t see much damage in your thyroid (which is good). You can have little to no damage but still have symptoms. I’d suggest alleviating stress (seriously, stress is a BIG contributor to autoimmune diseases) and making sure you’re getting all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs through diet. Because you are losing your hair, it sounds like you may be low in vitamin Bs. So, try to increase your intake of foods that have vitamin B in them!:) Sending healing vibes 🙏☀️
