My Ferritin tested low (17) but Iron levels are normal (>100). I've lost about 50% of my hair over the last year. Can low Ferritin cause hair loss even though the IRON levels are NORMAL?
Oh yes. It happened to me. I had a ferritin of 30 with a normal serum iron. Major hair loss and extreme fatigue. A research dermatologist told me that the rock bottom ferritin level for a woman is 70; anything lower will produce symptoms. She said the current lab reference values need to be updated.

Did your hair grow back, and if so, how long did it take to see regrowth and at what Ferritin level?
