Re: is low iron and anemia the same thing
I'm certainly no expert but I think I know a little bit about hair loss. I am in remission from an autoimmune form of anemia. As I understand it hair loss can occur after a sudden shock to the system, such as the severe drop in hemoglobin or other blood levels. My hair loss occurred about 3 months after I was diagnosed and started treatment. My hair fell out for a few days and then stopped as fast as it started. All the hair has now grown back and it's even the right colour (not grey!). I've also been told, this type of hair loss never results in baldness. Once the body's normal "rhythm" returns the hair starts growing again normally.
I've had lots and lots of explanations, including the corticosteroids (prednisone) as the cause of the problem. This however seems to make the most sense to me.
So long live thick, "non-grey" hair!
