Hello, welcome to HCM, I am Dr Das
Firstly, hushimotos thyroiditis is an autoimmune condition where destruction of the thyroid tissue occurs due to presence of anti TPO antibodies.
Normal TSH level depends upon the test method and the laboratory. But cut off value taken is 7 to 8 not more than that.
Continue the treatment. When the TSH level comes down to normal, then the hair fall will automatically decreases.
