The connection between iron and hair loss is one that is well documented, and has even been the subject of scrutiny in studies that have spanned over 50 years.
A lack of iron has been linked to many symptoms, but one of the most noticeable and outwardly apparent one is hair loss. Low iron levels can cause hair to thin and even fall out in large clumps.
A big problem with iron deficiency is that it can be difficult to diagnose as the question ‘do I have a lack of iron?’ isn’t often on the tip of people's tongues.
This symptom of iron deficiency can affect both men and women, although arguably it can be much more emotional experience for women, if and when it strikes. While there are many treatments for hair loss with the varying results, if you are concerned about your hair loss as a result of iron deficiency, it is prudent to ensure you treat your iron problem in conjunction with hair replacement therapy for optimal results.
