Question: I have anaemia and wondered if it could be causing my hair loss?
Answer: Hi Lucie. It is possible that you may be experiencing hair loss from anaemia.
Many different illnesses and conditions, including anaemia, cause people to lose their hair on a temporary basis. This is due to something called Telogen Effluvium, a hair loss condition which causes diffuse thinning across the scalp and can last up to 12 months.
Without completing a full assessment of your pattern of shedding we cannot confirm the precise cause(s). Confirming the pattern of your hair loss can determine whether or not it is genetic or perhaps caused by anaemia. We would advise you to consult a specialist who can provide you with a personalised diagnosis and recommend the most effective hair loss treatments for your regrowth needs.
