There are several different blood tests used in the US to look for iron deficiency. Ferritin level is the most common (and supposedly most reliable) It reflects your total iron stores. The number range used that is considered within range is 10-220 (some go a bit higher to almost 300, each lab is different but generally agree on the lower end) I can't remember the actual unit of measure used. Even though my iron levels are extremely low I don't have a big problem with hair loss. I've always had this issue so I think my body has just learned to compensate.
