Hi Ashleynicol,

Sorry for the really late reply. I've actually had blood work done recently and I did have my thyroid checked. All seemed normal. I did discover that I'm moderately anemic (extremely low iron stores, low red cell count, etc.) and have a low vitamin D level. How any of that relates to my hair is anyone's guess, but maybe this is a start.

I've suffered from both. The iron deficiency years ago and I'm currently (hopefully) at the end of sorting my Vitamin D issue out.

The hair shredding was the first indication in both cases I had a deficiency before other symptoms followed. With iron deficiency I had bald temples, there as with Vitamin D the hair loss was from my whole head.
