I am a 35 year old female. I have been experiencing a rigorous hair fall. I am also feeling tired and dizzy. My skin and hair has become very rough and dry. Also the blood loss during periods is excessive. I got my blood tests done six months back and my serum iron was 36. My doctor had put me on an Iron supplement named Solfe for 6 months. I got my serum iron and vitamin D tested again. I have attached all the reports for your reference. My serum iron is still the same and it has not improved at all. Also, I get bruises on my body randomly. My thyroid levels are normal. Can you advise why my serum iron is not increasing, though my Hb is 11.9? My transferritin saturation is also low. Can this cause severe hair loss? Please advise a solution for my problem.
