    Iron Deficiency and thin hair

    I am 17 years old. Male. I always had a full head of hair but a year ago after a short haircut I noticed that my hair has thinned. The hair count on my scalp had reduced significantly. There were spaces between hairs making the scalp visible. I don't have any case of MPB in my family so I got it checked out by my doctor who diagnosed me as iron deficient and prescribed me ferrous sulfate tablets to take twice a day. I have been taking the tablets for 6-7 months but haven't seen any noticeable results. Anyone have any experience of this?
