Hypothyroid/hair loss and dieting?
I found out I had hypothyroidism in August 2007. I am on 50 mcg of levothyroxine...I am trying to loose 15-20 lbs and just can't seem to do it. I have never had any weight problems till June of 2007. I am now 22 and I feel like I should be able to loose the weight with diet and exercise but it isn't happening. My doctor says my levels for my thyroid are fine. My hair is also continuing to fall out slowly and is very coarse. Which is also a problem that I have never had? Can anyone help or suggest anything that would help?
