According to Healthline, if a thyroid issue is severe and untreated, hair loss may result. When your thyroid gland produces specific hormones either insufficiently or excessively, thyroid problems result. Weight gain and weariness are just two signs of hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid. Hypothyroidism develops slowly, which causes many patients to wait months or even years before experiencing symptoms. Weight loss and anxiety are only two possible effects of hyperthyroidism, an overworked thyroid.
The politician also said that her hair loss could be a result of her age, pointing out that she will be turning 60 next year.
I’m also gonna be 60 next year so if you’re gonna be 60, obviously you’re gonna have to lose some hair.the politician added.
Passaris, however, urged her followers to embrace themselves despite the struggles they might have. Her message urged them to love themselves through everything.
