I've been on an adrenal/hormone treatment regime for about 6 months and recently discovered a couple scraggly little hairs in my right armpit. There's hope! But at this rate, it may take a long time. We'll see.
On a related note, I have to take a moment to vent. When battling with my previous MD over my long laundry list of adrenal/thyroid symptoms, he told me that all of my symptoms were explained by depression except for the hair loss. He had no explanation for the hair loss and insisted that I was most likely just depressed. God help us all who have had to endure such outrageous nonsense.
I do agree re the Doctors, I take Adrenal supplements now and have found them a great help and I am also starting some Thyroid supplements , I too got sick of being palmed off with telling me I was suffering from anxiety or other stuff, and put onto the Med of the week from the drug companies with the biggest kick back and samples to offer, their clients" I am aware that not all the MDs are like this ,and maybe I have been unlucky.
