Dear Hair Loss:

Why does my thyroid play such a big part in my thinning front hair line? It is like I know when it is time to have my levels checked again because I can start seeing more of my scalp in my hair line. The frustrating part, my levels always show up good, but I can tell something is off.

 Dear Christina:

The thyroid gland plays a critical role in your body’s entire functionality and when it is off balance you will know it! Hormones, digestive functions, brain development are only a few tasks of a thyroid gland. When this gland is not functioning properly your hair will know it and can be the first to show it! Make sure your provider is aware of your hair loss concerns and insist upon a complete thyroid panel of tests (many functional providers test 7 levels of the thyroid). What does the thyroid gland do? The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate the body's metabolic rate controlling heart, muscle and digestive function, brain development and bone maintenance.
