Hi folks!
Just had the 1 year scan in August, but I've been experiencing a lot of hair loss (did the thyrogen). Is this something attributed to the Thy Ca stuff, or not? I did lose a good bit of hair after surgery as the levels were getting stable, so I anticipated that. But this was not expected...?

I am almost 2 years out from my TT and RAI. I am experiencing hair loss due to being hyperthyroid. My endo has me slowly lowering the dose so I am not this high. She wants the level high, just not this much. Stress will also cause hair loss.
