Can thyroid problems lead to hair loss?

Dr Louisa Draper

"It’s true that if you have a severe thyroid condition you might experience some hair loss. This can happen whether you have hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism."

Dr Louisa Draper

Hormonal imbalances, including an imbalance of thyroid hormones, can cause you to lose hair. However, thyroid problems only cause hair loss in a very small number of cases.
