    Forgot to mention that I am 43. Have always had long thick beautiful hair. Ive suffered from hypothyroidism since I was 15 and havegone through several rounds of losing hair due to TSH being too low or too high butit went away everytime after adjusting my medication. For thefirst time myhairisshedding profusely notdue to thyroid. Am I eatg too less? Iused to be on 1500/1600 cals anddid not lose wt so Inhad to cut down.

    Yes I'm having that problem now too, and I haven't figured out how to stop it either. I did start taking iodine drops on top of all the other vitamins because I had all the symptoms of iodine deficiency so maybe that will help.

    I'm having it too. I'm eating 1300-1400 right now but there was a period where I was eating a lot less. I had to add some things I cut out back in because I wasn't getting enough calories. Now I'm consistently eating 1200-1400 and the hair loss hasn't stopped yet.

    If it's from poor nutrition/low calories, it could take some time (think about 6 months).

    @smantha32 and @adchak I think if I was showing significant hair loss I would be talking to my doctor - blood tests may help identify the cause x
