A patient with severe hair fall and breakage was advised by her nutritionist to take multivitamin supplements that contained iodine in it but only after consulting a GP as she also suffered from an underactive thyroid.
The GP she consulted on icliniq.com cautioned her that in case of autoimmune thyroid disease, iodine would cause more flare up unless taken in a low dose along with selenium supplements. She also asked her to check for selenium deficiency which turned out to be present.
So, she reassured her that of all the endocrine disorders, thyroid problems were the easiest to fix and the patient thanked the doctor for her detailed advise and help.
