Intro to Iron Deficiency, Menopause and Hair Loss

Dull, dry, breaking and thinning hair with major changes in texture and volume are being reported during menopause every day. 

Because estrogen and progesterone levels decrease, and testosterone increases, it wreaks havoc on moods, hair follicles, and ultimately self-esteem, especially if your hair is not quite up to snuff.

Other factors can contribute to lifeless, breaking, and thinning hair during menopause such as an unbalanced diet, high-stress levels, and illness. 

Many overlook the importance of iron in their diet.

If you are not getting enough iron through your diet, you may experience excessive hair shedding (Telogen Effluvium), or you may find that your hair will not grow past a certain length.

Iron is a mineral essential to our health.
Its most important function is to aid in producing red blood cells. Red blood cells contain a protein called hemoglobin, which carries oxygen through our bloodstream to all our organs and tissue, which includes our hair follicles.

Iron also optimizes energy levels, nourishes muscles (including your heart), and helps the immune system function. It’s vital for total body health and well-being.

If you do not have enough iron in your body, you may develop a condition called iron deficiency anemia.

With a lack of red blood cells, your body lacks oxygen. It will channel the available oxygen supply to vital organs to keep them alive, rather than your hair follicles.

Without oxygen, your hair follicles stop functioning properly, causing slow growth and hair loss.

It’s important to consume plenty of iron through diet. Those that are vegetarian, vegan, and if you frequently exercise because some iron is lost through sweat should pay particular attention to their iron intake through diet. Anemia can occur if your diet lacks iron-rich foods or if you are not absorbing iron adequately.

​The symptoms of iron deficiency anemia include:

Extreme tiredness

Lack of energy

Pale skin


Heart palpitations

Slow hair growth

Hair loss

Conclusion to Iron Deficiency, Menopause and Hair Loss

If you notice your hair isn’t growing as long or as fast as it used to or if you have excessive hair loss ask your doctor to test your iron levels.

If you discover you have low levels of iron (anemic), try not to stress — hair loss due to anemia is reversible, and your doctor can prescribe an iron supplement.

It is important to follow the dosage you are given because taking more than prescribed will not lead to faster results and high iron levels can also be dangerous. You may also want to ask your doctor to suggest changes to your diet.

The most beneficial treatment for anemia and hair loss is making sure you’re getting enough iron through good nutrition and supplementation. Good sources of iron are meat, liver, shellfish, nuts, leafy green vegetables, dried fruit, beans, and whole grains. To ensure
