    My ferritin has been over 70 for these last four months. I have had it checked twice and my lab work is good. Prior to this my ferritin was incredibly low. I think 30. Anyhow, at over 70 for 4 months andmy shedding has not stopped. I thought it was slowing but recently it really got worse. What is wrong with me?

    Could it be from the products you are using on your hair? Is your scalp itchy? Are you tying it up a lot? Do you stress a lot?

    Tricky Iron Levels

    Personally my shedding did not stop until my ferritin levels hit 100 and stayed there for 2-3 months. I also took biotin while on high doses of iron because my dermatologist said that sometimes iron supplements can make other vitamins harder to absorb.

    If you have an itchy scalp or anything consider an over the counter shampoo and gently blow drying hair until the scalp is dry, both are really important to my hair health.
