Brief Answer:
calcium and b12, vitamin D supplements

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXX,

Welcome to HCM.

As you are hypothyroid and have PCOS as well, you need to take calcium 1gm, vitamin B12 1500 mcg and vitamin D 1000 IU per day along with your thyroxine medicine. So there are no deficiencies due to thyroid disorder. You have not mentioned weight, but still you must exercise regularly and follow a dietary restriction to avoid weight gain.

Regards!

HI,

I'm 28 yr old female, i have hair fall problem from past 3 to 4 years. My hair started thinning only in the front. I used several lotions like ervamatine, hair for u, for some days it was fine & later it gave me side effects like dandruff skin problems like acne. Recently i consulted a dermatologist where she asked me to take thyroid, blood test & ultra sound ( abdomon) all the tests was fine for me except for deficiency in Vitamin B12 & vitamin D. I was prescribed with Anaphase shampoo & neoptide spray. I'm still worried if this would solve my problem. Will neoptide spray has any side effects before i go ahead & use i wanted to be 100% sure. If i have to use them should i sue these products for life long?Please advise.
