I've been suffering from diffuse hair loss for over 2 years. About 6 months ago, I discovered that my serum ferritin was low (13). I've been taking 2 Slow Iron pills daily and my levels are up to 53. I am still shedding hair and am starting to feel like this will never help. I'm wondering if anyone out there has been helped by increasing their iron stores and if so, what number did it reach before helping.
