Changes in thyroid cause hair loss and other disorders

Jul 4th 2014 at 10:42 PM

The hair loss  has many causes, but it is commonly caused by  changes in the thyroid , one of the largest and most important endocrine glands. Responsible for producing two hormones (T3 and T4) are important to the proper functioning of all cells,

where it does not work on a regular basis, the body reacts by problems in several regions and organs such as the central nervous system, adipose tissue, heart and skin and also hair.
How to detect changes in thyroid?
For a correct diagnosis is made, it is necessary to evaluate several factors ranging from the detection of symptoms to performance of physical, laboratory and imaging tests , under medical supervision.

What are the symptoms and possible changes in thyroid?
Changes in thyroid often lead to irregular hormone production (hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism ), benign nodules, malignant tumors and inflammation of the gland (thyroiditis).

It is important to note that not all of these pathologies lead to changes in hormone levels (T3 and T4). Stay tuned because the normal blood test does not always guarantee that everything is running smoothly in the body .
Related to changes in the thyroid symptoms are varied: changes in mood, sleep and bowel movements, irregular menstruation, irregular heartbeat, muscle pain, changes in weight, decreased memory and sweating excessively.

The hair may also be affected?
Yes, and it can happen in several ways:
1) by diffuse or localized fall . Thyroid hormones act in the anagen stage (growth and development of the hair follicle) and therefore its importance in this case. When altered, can cause telogen effluvium (diffuse fall) and, in the case of Hashimoto's hypothyroidism, come associated with alopecia areata (autoimmune syndrome).

2) The hair becomes dry, brittle and dull (often happens with skin and nails too).
How to deal with changes in thyroid?
Many people treat hair loss without investigating the possible causes or desiring a single treatment that can be used in the mother, brother, friend and aunt. After all, they all have the same problem. First of all, we must investigate the cause

, what health conditions of patients, check what medications and supplements it can use and the optimal dose for each organism.
If such factors are not taken into consideration,

the treatment will not be effective. And there are so many complaints from patients saying that he was treated, and took various vitamins did not improve. There may even be a temporary improvement but followed by a strong worsening.

Doing so just masking the issue and interferes in the diagnosis and prescription of appropriate treatment, compromising the final result. Then consult a doctor.
