When looking at iron in the body, it can appear to be simple. You are either in the acceptable medical range or not. There is a lot more to iron that simply being within medical acceptable range. Iron is an essential element for the bodies blood production, with around 70 percent of your body’s iron found in the red blood cells of your blood. This is called hemoglobin, in the muscle cells it is called myoglobin. Hemoglobin is essential for transferring oxygen in your blood from the lungs to the waiting tissues of the body.
The immune system is also dependent on iron for efficient functioning. Mental and physical growth require sufficient levels of iron particularly important in childhood and pregnancy where a developing baby depends solely on the mother’s iron supplies.
Iron Studies and Hair Loss Sydney, the whole picture:
- Iron level
- TIBC, Transferrin or Total Iron Binding Capacity level
- Transferrin Saturation level
- Ferritin level
- Hemoglobin level
- High levels
- Low levels
- Associated hair and low levels
The body loses iron in various ways including urination, defecation, sweating, bleeding, and removal of old skin cells. Women will always have a higher demand for iron than men. When iron stores are low, normal haemoglobin production slows down, the transport of oxygen is diminished resulting in symptoms such as fatigue, dizziness, fogginess and low immunity.

What may appear normal in medical ranges may indeed be out of order with highs and lows that can affect hair growth, hair regrowth, scalp conditions and autoimmune conditions.
