‘How Do I Treat Hair Loss if I Have Hashimoto Thyroiditis?’

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

Name: Eileen

Question: Is there anything I should take for diffuse hair loss and now androgenic alopecia due to extreme stress for 5 years and hashmoto thyroiditis.

Hypothyroidism and hair lossAnswer: Hi, Eileen. The approach to dealing with your hair loss is the same as for people without Hashimotos disease as there are no contraindications.

The diffuse thinning you are experiencing could well have been a result of your thyroid condition or any medication you may be taking to help deal with your chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis. This could be further exacerbated by the stress you are under. Both are known to cause hair loss from all over the scalp – a condition known as Chronic Telogen Effluvium – though this is usually on a temporary basis as the hair growth cycle becomes disrupted.

When genetic hair loss is also involved the problem becomes permanent, which could be why you mention you have been experiencing hair loss for five years. However, the areas affected by androgenetic alopecia will be limited to the top of the scalp and the hairline rather than the whole scalp.

We see many clients with both female pattern hair loss and simultaneous diffuse thinning. It is possible to tailor a bespoke hair loss treatment course to address both issues at once. Belgravia’s approach in these instances can often help to stabilise the shedding and promote new hair growth through the use of high strength minoxidil combined with suitable hair growth boosters.

The first step is to have a professional diagnosis made of your condition(s). Belgravia offer free trichocheck consultations at our Central London hair loss clinics, or if you are based elsewhere in the UK or abroad, you can receive an Online Consultation instead.
