Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Hair fall due to change in location or change in weather is extremely common. Since you also have a thyroid issue it adds to hair fall too. Ecophane is a nutrient tablet which could help. Along with that I recommend you do some hair treatments at the dermatologists like PRP (platelet rejuvenation plasma) where plasma from your blood is injected into your scalp: this reduces hair fall, strengthens hair follicles and stimulates new hair growth. Also, I suggest you start applying Minoxidil 5% once or twice daily for at least a year: this will stimulate new hair growth too.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,
Dr. Smruti Pevekar
