Losing a lot of Hair.

Hi everyone,

I am only 23 and use to have THICK hair and over the past 2-3 years they have thinned so much. When it first started I didn't even notice the fall since I overlooked it thinking it was normal to loose a few strands but now it is totally a different situation. I lose 500+ strands right off my roots, I feel so upset, helpless. I know I have super low in iron and my doctor prescribed me iron pills which I have been taking for 6 months now but I do not see any significant changes in my hair, it is STILL falling out so much. I started taking Biotin, Fish Oil, Folic Acid, Vitamin C with my iron pill a month or so ago, and still see no changes. If you have gone through something similar PLEASE HELP. I really don't know how to deal with this. The last I visited my doctor and I addressed this issue to her she didn't seem that worried for me?? But this is huge deal to me, so if anyone out there has any answers for me...or can help me in any way I would be really greatful.

Re: Losing a lot of Hair.

How much iron are you taking and are you sure it is getting absorbed by your body and increasing your Ferritin levels? Have you gotten your Ferritin checked and what was it? If your body is not absorbing it, there are other options but you need to find that out first.
