Re: Telogen Effluvium Recovery

Hi there

All I can say is, it is a very long and slow process. I have quite a few hairs now that are about 6cm long, but the shedding has still not stopped completely. I saw a trichologist. She recommended I take a high dosage iron tablet, Vitamin C and Lysine to boost my Ferritin level up to 60-70. (It was 27 previously). I do not know what it is now but am due a further blood test to see. Have you had your Ferritin levels checked, as this is now commonly linked with hair shedding?
