Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query,
It is very common to loose hair in thyroid problems.
Your TSH is not very high but it is on borderline.
I would like to know whether are you taking thyroid supplements.

Dont worry regarding hair fall.
It can be controlled

Do the following
1. Apply minoxidil lotion 5 %, 1 ml daily twice on your scalp.
2. Take tablet proanagen and follihair daily.

This will give you good relief in about 3 months.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.

Thank you
