Are you struggling with hair loss?
Most women that have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s are struggling with hair loss of varying degrees. This could be losing handfuls at a time. Or it could be noticing you have more at the bottom of the shower than usual.Some will lose a large portion of their hair. And others will notice that it gets thinner with time.
So, what can you do about the hair loss from Hashimoto’s?
I get this question a lot. And I wanted to make a video on this topic to explain why it happens and some things you can do to correct it.
- Collagen and biotin are just Band-Aids

When getting iron tested, you want to ask for the following labs:
This will cover all your bases when it comes to iron intake and absorption in the body.
