I'm 33 year old of female, I found I have TSH low in 2 years ago. Actually, I have this TSH low already 3 years because my body condition seem no big different during the first year, so I don't know I have TSH low. During the first year, my hair is no problem but later on my hairs are falling after taking the thyroxine 100mg per day for one and half month, my hairs are falling from the root too much until now. . My doctor said it is not related to TSH low. I can't believe. My TSH is come to normal already 2 years. Can you give me some advices about this problem. Or I have to see the other doctor?

The low TSH may or may not be a clinical problem depending on the history, physical signs and the other investigative results. You have to consult an endocrinologist to fully evaluate the abnormal TSH. The falling of hair is most likely a separate problem. But again needs evaluation.
