I started researching on the web what I can do to prevent additional hair loss and ways to restore hair loss and found your website.
I was wondering if you could answer a question for me. Here’s a little history – I have had a medical condition which involved being on non-inflammatory steroids (prednisone) for 4 years and have had 3 surgeries. During each surgery I have noticed that my hair had gotten thinner. I also have a problem with being anemic due to the result of my prior medical problem and surgeries. I am supposed to be cured now, however, I have hair loss which is visible on the top of my head (easily to see my scalp). I’m only 34 years old and am very discouraged. Can my hair loss be restored by taking vitamins and/or iron pills? If not, what would I be facing to restore it? Can it even be restored at this point? Help!
You need to be examined to be sure that there is no other medical problem that is producing hair loss at this time. Anemia is just one of the causes of hair loss. Generally, vitamins and / or iron pills will have no effect. I am not sure if you are a man or woman from this question and this would be an important factor for men with hair loss that is genetic and precipitated by a medical condition will usually not get the hair back. You need to make an appointment with a competent doctor, who is familiar with hair loss.
