Did you start any medications?
Did you have your thyroid levels checked?

Customer reply replied 8 months 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.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
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.
Doctor: Dr. Scott, Doctor replied 8 months ago
Did you have your testosterone and androgen levels checked?
Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 8 months 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 reply replied 8 months ago
No. I will cancel service and pay for this one call.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
