I am a 48 year old female and have experienced hair thinning over the last 3 months. I have recently been diagnosed with severe iron deficiency for which I am now on medication. My GP says it will take 4-6 months for this medication to work and after that my hair should stop thinning, but I am unclear as to whether I can expect it to grow back to how it was before or whether it will prevent it thinning any more. Do I need to do anything in the meantime to encourage growth?
Answer: It is definitely possible that the hair loss will stop once your iron deficiency has cleared up. We usually recommend Minoxidil MPG for women with this problem, to ensure the hair loss is prevented in the mean-time and restored to it's maximum potential when the medical problem is cleared up.
