What Should You Do with Hair Loss due to Thyroid?
Losing your Hair is the worst phenomenon that can happen to you and your family.
It will not just destroy your overall look but it can also alarm you that you have a disastrous disease that needs some attention. There are plenty of reasons why people lose their Hair and Hyperthyroidism or Hypothyroidism is one of them.
According to the internet, Hypothyroidism also known as Underactive Thyroid is an endocrine system disorder in which the Thyroid Gland do not produce sufficient Thyroid Hormone. Hyperthyroidism on the other hand has the opposite effect.
Having a Thyroid Disease is one of the worst nightmares you can get but losing your Hair as its symptom is worse.
But there are things you can do to prevent, cure and stop Hair Loss caused by Thyroid Disease/Hypothyroidism.
Here are the Top 10 Best Things you should be doing when suffering from Hair Loss due to Thyroid:
1. Be Evaluated
Schedule a check-up right away with your trusted dermatologist in town so he/she can check your case if it is caused by Hypothyroidism or not.
Treating your Hair Loss can be dangerous if you don’t know what caused it to be like that.
One wrong medicine or treatment that you’ll do with your hair without knowing the cause can worsen your Hair Loss.
2. Patience is the Key
Once you consulted a dermatologist about the Hair Loss you’ve been experiencing and he/she had proven that it is caused by your Thyroid Disease, you can now go to your Thyroid doctor and get cured by undergoing a certain treatment.
The dermatologist can’t help you with your Hair Loss case because it is caused by your Thyroid Disease and not just a normal reason.
Treating Hypothyroidism can make you wait a long time; months or maybe years. But you should be patient when you’re really desperate to cure the disease and your Hair Loss.
It’s better to wait and expect a good result than rush and worsen it right?
3. You Should Not be Under treated/Over treated
Make sure that you’re not under treated because that can be the reason why you are losing your hair strands.
Ask your doctor if there are medicines that you should drink so that the Hair Loss due to Thyroid case you are facing right now will be stopped.
Also, make sure that you’re not over treated because it can also worsen your case and cause you more hair.
Consult the doctor and make sure that you’re treated very well so you can stop Hair Loss cause by Hypothyroidism.
4. Consider Some Alternative Treatments
If you’re undergoing a treatment for a long time and still your Hair Loss feels that it’s not going to stop, consider other alternative treatments.
Consult your doctor (because that’s the best thing you can do) and ask him/her if what other alternative treatments you can try so that the curing of your disease can be faster as well as your Hair Loss.
Write down the alternative treatments you can afford so that you can try them alternatively and check the results if what treatment is the best for you.
5. Understand the Types of Hair Loss
You should also understand the types of Hair Loss for you to know if what type of Hair Loss you are facing right now. Understanding it can give you more hints if what treatments you should undergo with you doctor’s guidance of course.
The first one is the general shedding; this is the one you’ll experience when you have Thyroid Disease. Hairs will fall out on the showers, combs, towels etc.
The second one is caused by fungal infections, wounds, and accidents etc. that can damage your skin and prevent your hair from growing. This is the temporary one.
Lastly, the Male and Female Pattern Baldness otherwise known as Alopecia Areata and Androgenic Alopecia caused by genetics and hormones.
6. Check Your Thyroid Drug
How? Go to your Thyroid doctor and make him/her check the drug if it is approved by the specialists, if it can really cure your disease or it is just a drug that can worsen your illness and make your balding process faster.
Make sure that the drugs you’ve been taking are safe so that it will not cost you more money.
7. Find Out if You Need a Second Drug
There are cases which need some second drugs. Ask your doctor (they are the best person to ask for something related to treatment, of course) and tell him/her if there are medicines out there that can make the effectiveness of your first drug faster. Sometimes, I mean most of the time, a single drug can’t cure a certain disease it needs some support from another drug.
So when you have Thyroid Disease and Hair Loss, you should go ask your doctor if what he/she recommends the most as the second drug to cure your Thyroid Disease and the Hair Loss caused by it.
8. Talk About it With Others
Find, seek and manage your time to find friends who have the same case as you.
Helping each other, giving advice and success stories can uplift the souls of everyone and that will be the one of the factors that can help you cure Thyroid Disease and Hair Loss faster.
Knowing that you’re not the only one having that kind of disease and knowing that others have overcome Thyroid Disease and Hair Loss can make you more comfortable and confident that in the near future, you will beat it too.
9. Eat Healthy
Nothing beats the natural medicine given by God to us. You should add green leafy vegetables, fruits and many more natural products to your diet.
It will not just help cure your Thyroid Disease and Hair Loss but it can improve your overall body health.
10. Consult a Doctor
I am being redundant here but this is one of the most important things that you should do to stop Hair Loss due to Thyroid Disease.
Before you make any steps in curing your Hair Loss, go and ask your doctor if what he/she recommends on how you can stop hair Loss cause by your Thyroid Disease.
There are plenty of ways to stop Hair Loss due to Thyroid but always remember to go back to the basics: eat healthy, exercise daily and consult a doctor. Be healthy everybody and good luck to your journey in the treatment of Hair Loss or even Baldness.
