it is interesting your ferritin is not low but TIBC and serum transferrin is still high i.e. out of range... (you did not post reference ranges for serum transferrin so I'm just assuming it is similar to my lab ranges).

and, I would say the saturation is still way too low.

did they check your ESR (sedimentation rate) and CRP (C-reactive protein) to see if maybe inflammation raised the ferritin? though in that case transferrin should be low.

if no inflammation I would take some more iron.

note I did not have hair loss issues even at a ferritin of 6, but this could be very individual. btw I would notice hair loss easily as I don't have thick hair and never did but in my case it is genetic, unrelated to iron status, my mother is the same. but certainly no need to wear a wig!
