Low saturation level ?

I have been feeling off since the summer. Queasy,nauseated, dull pains in my stomach, irritable and very short, weird feeling when I swallow. I have significant hair loss and now have bald spots. I went to my GP in November and he did a blood work up. He told me the only thing that came up was my vitamin D is 8.4. He put me on a 50,000 IU prescription. I saw a dermatologist and he told me to try minoxidil. I lose a lot of hair every time I comb, wash etc. I requested a copy of my blood test. It says my iron saturation is 12%. The blood test was taken at night. Could this be anemia and a reason for hair loss? I'm seeing an endocrinologist tomorrow. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
