Article on Hairloss and hyporthyroidism


Great article on Hairloss, hypothyroidism and the importance of enough iron, by Izabella Wentz:

About sufficient ferritin level:

"Normal ferritin levels for women are between 20 and 200 ng/mL. According to some experts, ferritin levels of at least 40 ng/ml are required to stop hair loss, while levels of at least 70 ng/ml are needed for hair regrowth. The optimal ferritin level for thyroid function is between 90-110 ng/ml."
