Hair Loss: Low iron levels

Anaemia is an often overlooked cause of hair loss, according to trichologist Gary Heron.

Have a blood test to check your iron (haemoglobin) levels and get your ferritin levels analysed too. Ferritin is an iron storage protein that plays a part in the production of hair cells. If it is low, or even at the lower end of average, it could be worthwhile taking iron supplements – and the results could become apparent within months. But be aware that iron sulphate supplements can cause constipation and iron-related hair loss tends to be more common in vegetarians.

When it’s time to see the Trichologist: If you begin losing hair rapidly, and or are cosmetically concerned about baldness, consult your Trichologist about treatment options. You can receive a free hair loss consultation with a Westminster Trichologist at our Hair Centre.

The point is that you are not getting to the real problem and you should seek specific professional advice from a Westminster Trichologist.
