Common Questions and Answers about Weight gain hair loss thyroid


Recently I have been experiencing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gain</span> and a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>. I am 21 years old and I'm not sure what is going on? Could it be low iron, thyroid disease or related to my recent discontinuing of birth control?
Also anything I can do to slow down the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>? My main symptoms right now besides the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span> is fatigure,bloating and constipation and brittle nails.I feel tired all the time and have seemed to put on 10 pounds in the last couple of weeks even tho I havent changed anything Iam eating less actually and work out about 2 hrs most days of the week.I recently lost over 75 pounds in the last couple of years with diet and exercise I sure dont want to gain it back!
I recently ordered mira <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> oil as an attempt to stop the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>. Does this mean the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span> is purely due to my thyroid, or could it be alopecia as I am losing hair practically from most of my body?
Once you get your thyroid function back to normal, your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> should grow back. Losing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> is one of the hypothyroid symptoms along with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gain</span>, low mood, etc....
Too little TSH indicates you have hyperthyroidism or over active <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span>, producing too much <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> hormone - common symptoms are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>, diarrhea, hand tremors, fatigue, depression, rapid heart rate, palpitations, anxiety, hair loss.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span> lags 2-3 months behind the cause -- so this may have been <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> dysfunction in the past - it would be a good time to retest thyroid levels now that it has been 5 weeks. Many people regain the weight they lost when hyper once the thyroid is fixed.
Constipation Excessive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gain</span> without a known cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span> Sensitivity to cold Swollen feet and shortness of breath Uncontrollable hunger accompanied by palpitations, tremor, and sweating Vision changes
I have suffered from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gain</span> more so since my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> was removed in 1994. I have an additional 80 pounds and can not loose weight. I thought my body was resistant to weight loss until the Atkins Diet. I kept it off for two years then gained all then some back. My attitude would be so positive if I could just loose 100 pounds. I am 5'8, 47 years old and weight 302 POUNDS. I don't look it, but I do look obese. I said that I could never get to 250 and now I am here.
Does everyone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weight</span> with Hashimotos and hypothyroid. It is so depressing. I am thinking on going on WW or Nutrisystem, but will I lose weight if my thyroid is still screwed up? I have low motility too when it comes to digestion too. Took the sitz test and an average person can poop out the beads in 2 days and it took 7 for me. What have other done? I am frustrated!
Hun, Get a different doc, you know, they are just ppl, and, as ppl, some are *sses, and some are not, Please have them do thyroid check!! <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> problems will cause depression, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gain</span> (or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>) as well as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>, i had a circular patch oh top of my head, and doc decided to check my thyroid, now i on synthroid, and hair grew back, emotions under control..
Although my doctor did rountine tests to watch my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> I noticed that it was off myself. tired all the time . <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gain</span>, thinning eyebrows (especially at the outer sides) so I had him retest my thyroid and found out it was off. Now on synthroid and doing good. but this is a permanate thing. Did your doctor not warn you of any of this? I also would like to ask a question, you said in your post that you are 10weeks off treatment . Are you done or 10 weeks into treatment?
I have this and it can cause irregular periods, acne, hair loss, facial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> or excess body <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>, bloating or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gain</span>, insulin resistance, infertility, ovarian cysts and hormonal imbalances. I have had this for many years and it is treatable once you are aware of it. First of all you need to be tested just to be sure. Ask your OBGYN to test you for this. You don't necessarily have to have all symptoms. I belong to soulcysters.com and its very helpful.
I used to have extremely thick hair, and now I just dont feel like I do anymore. It scares me almost as much as the body <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>! lose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> in one spot, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gain</span> it in another. I am not really overweight, I weigh about 160 lbs but I carry most of it around my middle which I think exacerbates all my symptoms. Right now I am taking b.c pills and a multi. I should probably get a B-complex on top of that.
I have recently tried zyprea with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weight</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gain</span>, respridol with horrible confusion, and geodon with ? side effects. I started on seroquel. It seemed to be working great, then my hair started falling out much more than usual. I also stopped taking birth control pill right around the same time for no particular reason. My thyroid, estrogen and testosterone levels have checked out. I have recently started back on the birth control pills.
Have been on Levothyroxine for several months now and have seen improvements in all symptoms except <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>. I'm also on Plavix (due to a TIA), which I understand can also cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>. I started on it shortly before beginning to exhibit thyroid symptons. I've had breast cancer, so can't take estrogen. Testosterone test was normal, so that's not the cause of the hair loss anyway. It's substantial and is becoming embarrasing.
The thyroid panels you had done were vey inconsistant labs unfortunately, to really determine the right method of addressing a thyroid disorder. The TSH is probably the only thing this doctor based the medication on which can in alot of times be faulty. The tests to best determine "how" and "what" to treat this condition are the Free T3 and Free T4 levels - not the "index" or FTI readings.
