I have just found out I have very low iron levels. I am hoping this is the reason for my hair loss, tiredness and the extent of my depression and panic attacks.

I have just realised that my message makes me sound happy about my hair loss. Its just a relief that it is something that will hopefully get better with the iron tablets I'm on.

My hair is all falling out too! DS 4 and three quarter months. I am getting a widows peak! I went to a health food shop and am trying an iron product, it is called Spa tone, apparently one sachet contains as much iron as 1lb of spinach! It is natural too, so may be less likely to bung up your intestines!
