Yes another year and truthfully I don't want to take it for another year. The hairloss can be directly related to the ferritin. I never really noticed and thought it was normal, luckily I have thick hair but I do notice a spot on my head that is more bald and it's so depressing. I lose tons of hair too. It sucks. I would say yes where your numbers are lower they may be more inclined to give you an infusion over the oral route. Infusions are much faster.
