Biotin did not help me. It did not hurt anything, but it did not help either. I have been taking it daily for 14 months, but will discontue after this bottle is gone.

Four years ago I was diagnosed with graves disease, a form of hyperthyroidism, my skin had become dry, and my hair started to get really thin. At first it wasn't noticeable because I always had thick long hair. Now my hair is noticeably thin.
