I am terrible at remembering the names of the tests. I checked the lab orders they mailed me for follow up and it is the TSH, free T4 and free T3. She called me with the last round of numbers so I don't have them written down. What I understand you saying is that taking the estradiol would have caused my thyroid to be out of whack and stop taking it would help my thyroid return to some level of normal? I am 46. I quit taking the HRT because I am on several medications and am trying to return my body to a more natural way of living. I had the hysterectomy at 40. I would most likely be starting menopause around this time in my life. There is an increased risk of breast cancer with HRT. I have noticed no horrible side effects, some hot flashes but not unmanageable, no changes in mood or well being. Up until now I never considered it being why I would have hair loss.
