I recently had my ferritin level checked. I'm a 10. Which I was told by my endocrinologist and physician is normal. I was told the normal range is 6 - 110. Quite a range. Clearly, even if I am 'normal' I am on the low end of normal. Tom Haggerty's website (google Tom Haggarty & hair loss) suggests getting ferritin up to a 70 for a speedier TE recovery. My question is -- can this be done simply be eating more lean red meat? I have no problem increasing my comsumption of steak - just wondering is it POSSIBLE to increase from diet alone or would I need supplements? Thoughts? My problem is drug-induced TE from Zoloft, Trazadone and Klonopin. I took these drugs for just under 2 months and stopped them about 1 month ago. I am having diffuse hair loss all over - A LOT - 200 per day on the days I wash (which is every other day). I am told this will go on 3-6 months; probably more like 2-4 ... am very concerned about the amt I will lose before this is all over and regrowing. Any thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated.
