Hello, I've been really happy these past few weeks. I feel like something is finally working to reduce my hair shedding. I finally found a doctor in past month or so who took my hair loss concerns seriously. If you haven't yet found a good doctor who will listen to you, visit the American Academy of Dermatology Web site to find a doctor in your area who specializes in hair problems. That is what I did. Anyway, my ferritin was somewhat low, at 35. And my hair was shedding quite a bit everyday. My doctor put me on iron supplements (Feosol) once a day and I think this helped. But I also noticed that the shedding slowed down quite a bit when I ate red meat/protein. So, besides taking the supplement, I'm also watching my diet to make sure to include protein more often. I was not a vegetarian, but wasn't much of a meat eater either. The other things that I think are helping my hair look better is biotin and rogaine (2%), which I use once a day. I'm taking 4,000 mcg a day. So, anyway, just thought I'd write to give others some hope. Good luck and happy new year everyone!
