The thyroid is a vital hormone-related disease. It occurs when your thyroid hormones increase or reduce into an unhealthy stage and create an imbalance inside your body. Thyroid and hair loss areboth related to each other because the more imbalance in your thyroid hormone, the more hair loss will happen. Here I am going to show you how you can prevent your thyroid hair loss problem.
When in your body thyroid hormones reach into an imbalance stage, your body will get worse. It affects our weight, attitude, and behavior and so on. Hair loss is the most common side effect of thyroid hormones. But don’t worry! It is not a permanent fact. By proper treatment thyroid hair loss problem can be solved.
How thyroid hair loss occurs?
Normally hair loss is a very common problem among people. About half of the people of the world would experience hair loss by the age of forty. But things seem different in the case of thyroid patient. They face the problem of hair loss at an early stage of their time.
- According to medical science hair cells are the fastest cells of human body. If any imbalance occurs these cell shut down their function and replace the energy other places where it needed inside the human body. At one stage numbers of hair cells shut down and hair falls occur rapidly.
- Basically, every hair grows by half an inch per month. It grows according to this rate for next three years. Then it closes down and transforms into the resting season. According to medical statistics, one in every 10 hairs goes to the resting season at the same time. Within next three months, new hair replaces and takes out the old ones. But if more hair redirects to the resting season than the standard rate, the replacement process got disorganized. This imbalance will lead to hair loss at an early stage.
Including other causes, thyroid diseases are the most criminal of hair loss problem. Thyroid hair loss can occur in two ways including,
- Underactive thyroid hair loss
Underactive thyroid hair loss occurs due to hypothyroidism. It means lack of thyroid hormone (T3 & T4 hormone) inside the body. Gradually it spreads over the whole scalp and hairs got thinning. But proper medical and hair treatment helps to regrowth hair. Substantial hypothyroidism and thyroid disease are vital cause for hair loss. So, one should take hair treatment at an early stage. In maximum cases, people wait too much to consult a doctor.
- Overactive thyroid hair loss
Thyroid and hair loss also can be occurred for overproduction of hormones in the blood. Our brain orders to the pituitary gland to produce a hormone (T3 & T4). Pituitary gland detects the amount of hormone needed in the blood circulation and produces the specific rate of T3 and T4 hormones. But sometimes it produces at an uncontrollable rate. As a result, it causes too many hormones for whole body and hair loss. It is not only thinning the hair all over your head but also you will face hair loss from different parts of your body.
- Levothyroxine hair loss
Levothyroxine is a kind of drugs like Synthroid, Tirosint, and Tirosint. People normally take these medicines for replacement of thyroid hormones. In some cases, it works well, especially for beginners and child. But these drugs have reactions too which cause more hair loss than the previous rate. The research said that longtime hair loss is the side effect of using levothyroxine drugs. So if you see levothyroxine hair loss problem, consult with your doctor and change your medicines.
