Late 20’s female concerned about hair thinning most notable in last 2 months. History of birth control to treat acne and endometriosis. GP was treating low iron. We found additional low ferritin and anemic state upon viewing blood work. The hormonal influence of birth control can cause Female Pattern Thinning (FMPT). Low iron, low ferritin and an anemic state can cause hair loss and result in hair thinning.
With a correct diagnosis, diffuse hair thinning, FMPT, low iron and low ferritin, we could form a treatment plan to assist alongside of GP. Absolique focus is always on symptoms and causes where possible. To support the hair cell, hair cycle and raising iron and ferritin, combination therapy was the best option.
Hair Loss Treatment for Women, FMPT and Low Ferritin:
- Clean and prepare scalp for safe hair loss treatment
- Support hair cell and hair cycle topically
- Use topical antioxidants to address FMPT
- Nutritional therapy to support iron and ferritin absorption
Absolique hair loss treatment runs for 4 months. This is how long it takes changes at a cellular level to reach the surface of the scalp to be seen as healthy hair. Topical treatment is applied every 2nd day or 3 times a week as part of
your home hair washing regime. Nutritional therapy is taken twice a day on a hungry, empty tummy.
Results are checked at the 4-month mark with a digital comparison and the start of microscopic tracking. Both digital and microscopic images showed marked improvement. Blood results showed ferritin was raising, iron still needed some work and we were no longer in an anemic state, all progressive. Topically we remained the same for continued results and now decided to address FMPT topically only. Nutritional therapy reduced to once a day to support iron and ferritin and healthy hair growth along with positive diet changes. Next check in will be in 4 months with fingers crossed both iron and ferritin will be back in safe range.
Please take note from this story not to use birth control to treat acne or hormonal problems. Always ask for a copy of your blood tests and understand both iron and ferritin are important for health and hair growth. If your levels are in range but low, it can cause a hair growth problem.
