      Avoid, calcium supplements (tums) Iron, Biotin. Take a good vitamin B complex, Vitamin D and Vitamin C, you can take your hair and nail vitamin but you may need to stop taking it when you're on medication. (If it's Biotin- it can throw off your thyroid blood results.. so don't take it for about a week before an upcoming blood test) and try to avoid eating gluten (bread, pasta, desserts etc) it makes your bodies inflammation go crazy... unfortunately 😥 your hair "should" get better once you're on medication. Mine still falls out when I get super stressed. So, try to keep calm (I know, easier said then done!) I'm still struggling too- 1.5yrs on meds. Also... medication will probably need adjustment over a while till your numbers stabilize. Good luck.
