I read somewhere that a low hemoglobin count (anemia) can cause hair loss or excessive shedding. When I went for blood work last month, the doctor told me that my hemoglobin count was low and recommended that I take an iron supplement. I had major surgery 4 months ago. Unfortunately, iron binds me up, if ya know what I mean. I saw that someone on the board takes a supplement called Ferrofood. I checked it out online. It sounded like it would work for me and not cause the ummmmmmmm.... discomfort, as well as solve my anemia problem. I'd like to know if anyone has been anemic and experienced excessive shedding. If so, did you take iron supplements, like Ferrofood and did it help with the shedding? Thanks.
