    Your b12 level does not seem too low at 411 but you may be deficient at cell level if you have low folate level. Do you know ferritin and thyroid function? Is hair loss your only symptom?

      Hi heather,

      My ferritin is 47

      Folate is 9.2 ug ref 3.1-20.5

      I had my thyroid tests back at tsh2.1

      T4 13.3 ref 12-22 and t3 4.1 ref 3.5- 6.8

      Also my zinc is 12.5 ref 11.5-20

      And copper 12.7 - 25

      Do any of these seem low enough to be causing my hairloss.

      I feel so depressed!! And my scalp is itchy and burns sad

      Your thyroid seems to be struggling. Your ferritin could do with coming up a little. Try taking daily spatone natural iron water to help your ferritin.
