Hair loss inevitable due to hypothyroidism?

From: MsDiana - 2 years 37 weeks ago

Is hair loss/super fine hair texture inevitable with hypothyroidism? My hair used to be "normal" but now goes through periods when it falls out quite heavily and the texture has gone to being so super fine that there is really no "substance" to my hair!!! Has anyone gotten help for this issue or is it just "chalked up" as something to be lived with? I don't perceive it as a vanity/hair issue. It's a CONSEQUENCE of something being "off". I've mentioned it to my doctor and he sent me to a dermatologist and (of course) no problem was identified. Has anyone experienced this and actually gotten any help for it??
