Re: how long does hair regrowth take once high ferritin levels are reached

Is your ferritin at 97?

The Trichologist (hair/scalp specialist) i saw always said that when ferritin stays at 70 or higher for a period of 3 to 6 months that proper hair growth cycle can then take place eg: growth, resting, shedding phase.

I do remember when my ferritin was in the 40's and i didn't have the hair shedding. Now my ferritin is at 89 when last checked and i still experience my weird shedding cycle. I do have thyroid and hormone imbalance so believe my hair issues are as a result of that and not my ferritin. I also can't miss a day of iron supplements or my ferritin goes down again.

If your ferritin has been at decently high levels for a while i'd say your hair shedding is due to something else. You can be lacking certain vitamins/minerals, stress, thyroid or other hormone issues, birth control pills or other medication.

Hi, my ferritin has only been 97 for about a month or so. Ill probs wait another month or so and see what happens. Ive had my thyroid checked and its fine.

Have you noticed any hair growth since your ferrtin has been over 70.
