thyroid problem or diabetes?
I have been diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and are currently on medication for it. But recently my hair has started falling out again, and even after twice the dose of eltroxin tablets I still feel like a zombie. I am also constantly thirsty and urinate a lot. My baby was born a year ago and she weighed 4.2kg at birth. I realize that most of them are symptoms for both the conditions.

HI marelize
I think you should have yourself tested for diabetes and low iron levels.
