I am 21 year old male. i started dieting in march this year….i was literally starving myself. add to that, i was spending 2 hours in gym (extreme workout). lost about 36 pounds in couple of months. as i was into 4th month of my diet, i began to loose hair, hair fall is still happening. its so extreme that i can see my scalp. i have no history of balding in my family. i am worried to death. i had such thick hair that i always did thinning shears.
actually it all became visible when i did thinning shears third month into my diet. maybe my hair had gotten very weak by then. meanwhile i did my thyroid test last week and was told that i have hyperthyroidsm. my tsh is 0.04….so what is wrong with me ?i see no regrowth till now, i am going to get bald.
plz help,plz plz plz
Your rapid hair loss can be caused by rapid weight loss. Starving yourself is not healthy or smart, and can lead to a variety of problems (hair loss being the least of your concerns). Hyperthyroidism can also cause hair loss.
I would want to know what else is going on with regard to your health. See a doctor who understands hair loss.
