Underactive Thyroid hair loss

Postby Guest Posts on Wed Aug 14, 2019 12:28 pm

Hi, I have an underactive Thyroid and I have just had my medication increased to 50mg my hair has thinned out and wondered how long it will be before it starts to thicken up again and will my eye brows grow back at all?
Thank you

Dear Tracey,

I am sorry to hear about your hair thinning. It can take up to 6-12 months to get better.

I hope this is helpful.
With Best Wishes,
