In females? My labs referenced 15-150 being normal. I have been experiencing hair loss.

Are you taking any iron supplements daily ?

Have you done other blood test to rule out liver disease, rheumatoid arthritis, other inflammatory conditions or hyperthyroidism

I take prenatal meds. I was told liver function was fine. Where can I check those numbers on my labs?

You would need to check the following :

R A Factor

ESR

TSH levels

Thank you. Any ideas on the hair loss?

Hair loss can happen due to hormonal issues , lack of food absorption , stress and diet issues.

I would suggest you to get certain treatments like platelet rich plasma injections or dermaroller treatments for hair loss.

You can use Minoxidil application 2 % twice a day on the scalp for 6 months to reduce hair loss and grow hair as well.

Take some Biotin supplements.

Do let me know if you have any further queries.

I have released the rating service application on your page .

Please do leave me a feedback for my opinion provided.
