Hair Loss

Please describe the cause of your hair loss. Submit Your Comment

Comment from: Gloria , 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: June 19

I always had a very thick head of hair until 4 months ago when I started taking methimazole for hyperthyroidism. I started losing an excessive amount of hair each day. Doctor blames it on stress but I am not under any stress. My blood work confirms improvement in my hyperthyroidism but at a high price for a woman.

QUESTION

It is normal to lose 100-150 hairs per day. See Answer
