Hypothyroidism, other symptoms including hairloss, took alopathy and homoeopathy medicines, no improvement in hair fall. How to regrow hair?

Hi, I 30 yrs old & have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism 7 months after delivery & initial prescribed Elextroxin 100 mcg & then Thyronorm 100 mcg. I have been taking this medication for past 4 years. Even after starting with thyroid medication there where issues like hair thinning, too much hair fall, inability to sleep / disturbed sleep, feeling tried, to much anger, headache, sugar carvings, feeling hunger/thirsty always, restlessness etc... For these symptoms I have been taking homeopathy medication for almost 1 1/2 years & most of them symtoms have reduced except for hair loss . Blood test results shows TSH & T4 in normal levels & doctor has asked to continue with Thyronorm 100 mcg life long with regular blood tests. My hair loss giving me nightmares . There is no hair growth length wise or volume. I might become bold in 1 year if this continues, Is my thyroid / thyroid medication causing the hair loss. Is there a way to control and regrow my hair. Any suggestions will help me a lot. Thanks

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question.
I can understand your concern.

You have hypothyroidism and that is the cause of hairfall. You can increase the dosage of your thyronorm. You can also use drugs like minoxidil if it is not controlled by thyroid medicine alone.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any doubts then feel free to ask me. I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic.Wish you a very good health.
