Does anyone know much about an under active thyroid gland in women?
My girlfriend was at the doctor the other day, who noticed that her hair was thinning. So she is going for blood work tomorrow, and one of the things they are going to test for is her thyroid gland.
My girlfriend has also been on the T-Dawg diet since Janruary and has not succeeded in losing much weight, despite a sound eating and workout plan. She has only lost about five or six pounds at most.
Someone mentioned to me that an underactive thyroid can inhibit weight loss. I thought this was quite a coincidence, she is getting it looked at for thinning hair.
Do any of you out there no anything about this or have experience with it?
