Did you start any medications?
Did you have your thyroid levels checked?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am diagnosed hypothroid. I also recently had my levels checked. I am aware that low ferritin and thyroid can both cause hair loss. I also recently had pancreatitis and gallbladder removal in July.

My liver function has been tested and all is good. My other blood tests do not show anemia. My doctor always checks ferritin level because it has been low. I thought the hair loss was because of the surgeries but it is getting worse. I am waiting for call from my doctor.

Did you have your testosterone and androgen levels checked?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. Thank you for your time. I wanted to know what the high level meant with the IBC unsaturated of 334. This is not working for me. I will make an appointment with my doctor.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. I will cancel service and pay for this one call.
