Iron Deficiency/ Hair Loss

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have noticed quite a bit of hair loss pre-diagnosis. Now that I'm following a strict gluten free diet and am starting to absorb iron and other nutrients, should I expect my hair to be healthier and stronger?

I have been iron deficient since 2006. Ferritin never above 10 and lowest was 4. I finaly started tolerating oral iron supplementation this August and I have raised my ferritin to 33. Still a ways to go but definately better. I shed a lot of hair, but recently I have noticed the hair loss has decreased and I have new hair growth coming in! ;) It does take awhile depending how deficient you are/were.
