Thanks for the reply NYCGIRL. I have had my thyroid etc. checked at least four different times during this. It is supposed to be normal, but you know how that is. I have not had my hormones checked yet. I don't know why. I am seeing a dermatologist/hairloss Dr. and low ferritin is what was noticable. I don't like my number alway's in the 30's and dropping to 24 anyway's, but I wish this had been tried out over two year's ago! When you are going through this, the Dr's etc. really aren't there to answer questions! It is bad enough having the 100+ shed a day, let alone 350+ now. So I am trying to look at anything. They have me taking ferrous sulphate 325mg three times a day. I was told my hair is reflecting three months ago. Three months ago, I had lowest ferritin, death of a friend etc. In over two year's of this it is my worst ever. I am trying to look at hairpieces and things just to face the world again.
