    Hi Gaily-

    Thank you for sharing. I am glad you are working with a physician to monitor your thyroid labs and medication. If you haven't had your labs checked within the last month, I would recommend getting these tested to see where they are currently. It is not uncommon for thyroid labs that have previously been stable to change in response to some of the hormonal fluctuations occurring during menopause. Biotin does support the growth of hair and nails, so it may help. Our Vitality supplement is designed with biotin for to support hair and nails. Hair loss may also be an indication of other nutrient deficiencies such as protein. Including a protein source with all meals and snacks is a good place to start if you are not already doing this. Younger Not Better offers specialized hair care products that we may also help. Finally, stress can also influence hair loss. Assessing your current stress and implementing stress management techniques such as deep breathing or using a meditation app such as HeadSpace can also help. 

    Hopefully these suggestions are a starting point. Hair loss can be multi-factorial. If you would like a more personalized approach you can work with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist/Health Coach and an OB-GYN trained specifically in menopause through our HealthFix membership.
