christie, congratz on the ferritin levels. I have also experienced hair loss recently due to very high stress levels and a low ferritin level. After doing some research I found out that emotional or physical trauma event can cause hair loss. During the event the body stops "feeding" a percentage of hair follicles and the hair may not actually start falling out until 3 months after the event. There is nothing you can do to prevent that hair from falling out. Low ferritin levels cause hair loss because the realizes iron stores are low and well hair isn't that important. So again the body stops nourishing a percentage of hair follicles. Try to eliminate stress the best you can. I am sure your new results have calmed your nerves a bunch. Good Luck

CD11 - it has and thanks. My stress level is much better......I am on the mend. In your research or in your own experience, the hair follicles that weren't fed.........they are still "okay" and once the body starts absorbing nutrients, etc.........will they become active again? So confusing..........
