Blood testing is commonplace when visiting the doctor to get a snap shot of what is going on inside your intrinsic body systems. The problem is most blood tests are not compared to past blood tests to look for constant low levels, fluctuation levels and high levels. Blood test results help me as Absolique Trichologist to see where you are at with general health, especially if you don’t have constant healthy stable levels, which in most cases of hair loss and hair thinning, you don’t.
Hair loss treatments combination therapy with nutritionals can also be gauged by blood tests and help us to drop nutritionals and swap out for food, and also to be aware if any deficiencies are present, as our nutritional treatment regime is not designed to address deficiency, simply to support the body. So if we find deficiency levels are not improving, then we know pointed treatment with your doctor may be essential. It also shows the effect of your dosage and absorption.
To Read Hair Loss with Blood Tests with General Health Blood Test, please ask to include:
- Iron Studies
- Thyroid Studies
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin B12 and Folate
- Zinc, copper, magnesium
- Blood Sugar/Glucose where possible
In the case of iron, ferritin and Vitamin D to keep thing simple, commonly I see clients taking iron supplements, yet the ferritin is not raising, or taking Vitamin D and the same, is not raising. And I also see a lot of supplementation that is not at the right dose for the deficiency, not taken regularly and stopping of the supplement before checking in with the doctor again.
For healthy hair, you need to have a healthy body so looking in at the big picture helps us to help you, and we show you how to read your blood tests to look for the signs that may indicate things are getting out of balance and also returning to balance so you can adjust things in life accordingly.
Whether you are visiting Absolique Hair Health Clinic for the first time or coming back for a check-up appointment, please bring you most recent blood tests with you and kindly ask your doctor to list your past results on the same sheet, as we will find interesting things to show you to look out for your future health and healthy hair.
