In late 2001 I began noticing my hair thinning. I've always had very thick, long hair, but since I was going through a lot of anxiety & depression (including taking many types of antidepressants), I thought that was the cause. Well, it's been over 6 mos. and I've had no antidepressants..though my depression still exists. I've seen 2 dermatologists who told me that b/c I have the sickle cell trait, I'm prob anemic (w/low iron) causing this. I asked if I should tk something to build up my iron, but one Dr. said no b/c I may then have too much iron (?) I'm only 29, and I'm seeing the baldness esp. in the front! I don't know if I should cut my hair short & wear a wig! --Is there something I can do? My gynecolgist did a routine blood test in her lab 2 mos. ago & says things seem fine....Does that mean she checked for me being anemic? Suggestions, comments, help...??
