I recently found out that I am very anemic, plus I have lost almost 100 pounds over the past 13 months... so because of those 2 things, I am losing hair like crazy. I have been taking Iron for about 2 months for the anemia and I've been taking prenatal vitamins for like1.5 months since they are supposed to make your hair healthier and I am still losing huge amounts of hair on a daily basis.
I just took this pic after I got out of the shower. The hair on the left is what I lost when I brushed my hair and the hair on the right is what I lost in the shower. This happens every day. I have talked to my doctor about it and she doesn't really seem too concerned but it's freaking me out! I don't want to lose all my hair! I don't have any bald spots or anything but my hair is MUCH thinner than it used to be. I know it is normal to lose SOME hair, but I've never lost THIS much... until the last few months.
Do you think I could actually go bald from this? And does anyone know what to do to make it stop or slow it down?
