Way too many people these days have Thyroid problem. Nearly 50% of hair loss and hair thinning clients I meet in my clinic have a clinically diagnosed thyroid problem.
The thyroid is 1 of 7 glands that create the Endocrine System. All of the glands of the Endocrine System work together regulating many body functions and homeostasis by the secretion of hormones.
The function of the thyroid gland is to make, store, and release thyroid hormones into your blood stream. Thyroid hormones are referred to as T3 and T4, and affect almost every cell in the body helping to control other body’s functions. An under or over active thyroid gland will effect body balance and in turn can affect the hair cycle. Treatments Hair Loss Sydney and the Thyroid:
- Hypothyroidism – underactive thyroid -Hashimoto’s disease
- Hyperthyroidism – overactive thyroid – Graves’ disease
Thyroxine is a common medication treatment for underactive thyroid – hypothyroidism. But hypothyroidism is not a thyroxine deficiency, research shows it is the result of an iodine deficiency.
Iodine is one of 60-80 essential minerals needed daily for a normal functioning body. Most of us have other mineral deficiencies, and all minerals work in balance or as an antagonist, so if iodine is out of balance other minerals may be also. Make sure you are getting all of the minerals (plant derived colloidal are best absorbed), and synergistic nutrients such as essential fatty acids, fat soluble vitamins, water soluble vitamins antioxidants in a pH balanced body.
Regular blood tests are a good way to keep thyroid medication in check for balance. This is the key to balancing hair loss and essential for maintenance of healthy hair. Blood testing every 3 -4 months is recommended until a consistent balance is maintained over long periods of time.
There are also health care professional who can guide you through a 24 hour iodine urine test so you can find out exactly where your iodine levels are at.
