I used to be a vegetarian. I went back to eating meat and that's when I noticed my hair loss problem. I'm wondering if anyone of any blood type has noticed any problems like this when they weren't on the recommended diet. I don't know if it's simply because I cut out the soy which had estrogenic effects and helped to lower DHT or if it was because all that meat isn't good for my blood type. I am a vegetarian now but it is too early to tell if it is making a difference.

you will notice a big change once your body rids itself of lectins.
try following the guidelines as close as possible, including lifestyle.
cortisol lowering techniques, etc.

As far as I know, hair loss is associated w/ low thyroid.  And soy DOES affect the thyroid.  It could be the soy was masking an underlying hypothyroid condition (would need to test), or an allergy/intolerance.  If vegetarian was working for you, why not go back to it, but keep the soy to a minimum (and mostly as seasoning like miso, soy sauce) for a month or so to rule out a problem with soy. I have heard of other A's that have a problem w/ it.

A couple of years ago I was in Italy on a three week walking vacation and my poor body was terribly stressed. I was eating avoids at every meal and walking on feet that were covered in very painful blisters (long story!). My hair started coming out big time, and didn't subside until several months after we came back home and I got compliant foodwise and gave my feet time to heal. I remember going to get my hair cut shortly afterwards, and when the stylist was combing my wet hair, a lot of strands were clinging to her hands. Yuck.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Hi Isa!  

What do you think about taking twice the amount recommended on those Gaia Thyroid Support perles?

That would bring up the l'tyrosine quantity.

Wow, good topic.  I am 50, have been losing hair at what feels like too high a rate each day also.  I had a thyroid
nodule that was nuked in the late '90s, before knowing about BTD.  I so wish I had never had that done.  Now I take
synthroid 88mcg.  But I have been reading that many people need the t3 also.  I have tried thyroid support things, but
I am afraid they can't help me now.  But this hair loss is not normal.  So anyway, good to read here about others.  Let us know what helps, thanks!

I, too have progressively thinning hair.  Diagnosed with Hashimoto's, and have been on Synthroid for I can't remember how long.  It's getting to the point where I'm trying to plan what to do when it gets too embarrassing to go out in public.   Anyway, I take all the supplements listed above, plus eclipta alba, amla,except I haven't tried the l'tyrosine yet.......will be on the lookout for it.  I'm looking for a magic bullet before it gets too late.


OUCH!!   My dogma was just run over by my karma!

Biotin is also great for the hair, found in eggs and meat. Zinc and silica are great too as Isa has mentioned.

Linda, I have been on websites that say that synthroid isn't really a good substitute for normal thyroid.  It's what I am
on also.  Some believe that the synthroid actually slows down and causes the symptoms of hypothyroidism.  Since my thyroid was nuked, I am definitely hypo now.  So it has been a question of what can bring me closer to normal
now.  My endocrinologist only prescribes synthetic t4.  So anyway, if I ever find a solution, I'll post it.  But it has
helped by staying away from wheat and keeping dairy to a minimum.  I suspect candida is involved also......
