Re: Why is my hair so thin?

Some physiologic things that can cause overall hair thinning: anemia or low iron stores, thyroid problems, B vitamin deficiences, lupus. I would see Dr and ask to get cbc for anemia, ferritin for iron stores, Vit B12 and folate levels, thyroid profile and an ANA if you have any other symtpoms of possible lupus. Taking a B complex vitamin, correcting any deficiencies or hormonal problems may get some hair growth going. I take Biotin supplement, a B vitamin, which seems to help me. Trace mineral supplements may help also. My hair is doing the same from lupus and med side effects. It is very frustrating. I have found using a megagel for styling helps it look fuller.
