If you suffer from severe, prolonged hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, there is a chance that you will experience hair loss because of your condition. Thyroid issues often lead to overall scalp hair loss, not patchy areas. While this side effect may fade with treatment, thyroid problems tied with autoimmune disorders may cause alopecia, a more permanent form of hair loss. However, despite the common misconception, thyroid problems do not often result in hair loss – this only occurs in extreme cases.
Some people also report hair loss because of the medication they use to treat their thyroid disease. Medicines such as carbimazole and propylthiouracil may cause hair loss. They may also increase the life cycle of your hair, making it thin more easily. After starting thyroid treatment, pinpointing hair loss becomes challenging.
As unfortunate as it may be, hair loss is simply a side effect of aging. Most hair loss is natural, though some reasons vary, like pregnancy hormones. Often, people will try to cope by attributing hair loss to other health conditions, such as a thyroid disorder, but more often than not, their hair loss is a side effect of age.
The cause, however, does not impede your ability to find a solution.
