The Connection Between Iron Deficiency and Hair Loss
"A small amount of hair collecting in the shower drain or hairbrush everyday is not necessarily cause for concern born according to the academy of dermatology it's perfectly normal to lose one hundred or so hair from your head every day gradually thinning hair as you age is also normal normal and largely hereditary but hair loss especially when it's sudden or at a young age can also be a sign of certain medical conditions we're nutrient deficiencies and in these cases identifying and correcting the problem can often reverse your hair loss but this is not the time i'm for self diagnosis or treatment guessing wrong and treating problem that doesn't exist not only won't help it may actually make the problem worse so what causes thinning hair will two of the most common non hereditary causes of hair loss are low thyroid function and iron deficiency now both of these are fairly common especially in women and although they are two completely different conditions they share some of the same symptoms in addition to who hair loss fatigue and cold hands and feet can be signs of both low thyroid function and iron deficiency now both of these conditions are readily lee diagnosed with a simple blood test and can be easily corrected either with replacement thyroid hormones or iron supplements but taking an over the counter iron supplement if you don't have an iron deficiency can be potentially harmful if you suspect that you might be low in iron ask your doctor to confirm your suspicion before you start start taking any iron supplements if it turns out that you're not low in iron your doctor will probably wanna keep looking for other possible explanations for your symptoms and and if you are low in iron your doctor will probably want to recheck your levels after a few weeks of supplementation if the top laments don't seem to be helping your doctors probably we're gonna want to rule out other less common causes of iron deficiency although it's not a good idea to take iron supplements unless you know you need them it is a good idea to make sure that your diet contains enough iron to meet your needs and here are the recommended daily allowances for various groups for adolescent girls fifteen milligrams per day for adolescent boys eleven milligrams per day adult men and postmenopausal women need only eight milligrams per day menstruating women need eighteen eighteen milligrams per day and pregnant women need the most of all twenty seven milligrams per day of all of those the three groups that are most likely to be falling short are adolescent girls pre-menopausal and pregnant women

"Wabc studio eight hundred eight four wabc eight hundred eight four eight nine two to two and now we're gonna talk about some thyroid conditions and one of the most we're gonna talk about what's called primary hypothyroidism so primary hypothyroidism means the thyroid just isn't for whatever reason the thyroid is not producing enough thyroid and as a result the thyroid hormone levels are low and not not only are the thyroid hormones low but the brain in the military gland is a hormone called t s h thyroid stimulating hormone and so the patou itary gland in the brain is telling the thyroid you gotta make more thyroid hormone so what happens that tsa h goes up so it's for primary hypothyroidism the thyroid numbers are the t three and t four are low and the tsa h is high and so when that tsa ch is high that at with the t three and t four low that's primary hypothyroidism and just about most physicians clinicians will agree that you need to replace thyroid in that situation what type of thyroid there might be some disagreement about that but that you should take thyroid but now we're gonna talk about some other thyroid and that can be mild where the tsa ch is maybe up to ten normal is above four point five up to four point five so the tsa ch might be around ten but and there's a my decrease in the thyroid hormones when it gets moderate the tsa ch can go even up to thirty and then as a decrease t three and t four and then when severe hypothyroidism the tsa can be above forty fifty sixty gets pretty high and it's telling the the thyroid you gotta make more you gotta make more but despite that there is a very low t three very low t for and so that person is probably very very tired and has a lot of the problems that i mentioned at the top of the show so now what is secondary hypothyroidism sex secondary hypothyroidism is now i mentioned that the thyroid hormone by the thyroid itself produces t three and t four and most of the thyroid produced is t four that is in the thyroid in the tissue such as the kidney and the liver the t four gets converted and in the brain the t four gets converted to t three.
