Question: Hello I am 25 and have noticed my hairline receding and thinning, I also have hypothyroidism what course of treatment would you advise. Thanks
Answer: Hi Adam. Both a receding hairline and thinning hair around the top of the head are classic signs of Male Pattern Hair Loss, and clinically-proven male hair loss treatments are generally suitable for those with hypothyroidism.
Other additional components which may prove beneficial include hair growth boosters such as the FDA-cleared HairMax LaserComb, and a specially-targeted dietary supplement such as Hair Vitalics which promotes stronger hair from within.
Please be aware that the above is general advice concerning male pattern hair loss. We would urge you to consult a hair loss specialist – whether in person or online – regarding your specific situation before starting any treatment. This way they can take into account your medical profile, lifestyle needs and, of course, your pattern and level of thinning in order to tailor an effective, personalised treatment plan to best address your concerns.
Another reason why it is important for you to get expert advice on your hairloss is that thyroid conditions, including hypothyroidism, as well as some of the medications taken to treat them, can cause a condition called Telogen Effluvium which displays as thinning hair from all over the head. This can spark or exacerbate existing male pattern baldness in those with a pre-existing genetic propensity. Additionally this hair loss condition can also take effect simultaneously alongside Male Pattern Hair Loss so your thinning and your receding may not necessarily be from the same condition.
