Hairfall due to iron
I am a 21 years old male.I had been having hairfall from the past 2years. 8 months ago i found that my serum ferritin levels were 25, and now it is 82. I have taken 6 prp sessions, but even now I have rapid hairfall. How long does it usually take for a person with iron deficiency to get back his hair and have no hairfall? Is there any other reason for my hairfall? Is there any test for omega 3?

PRP is not a remedy for hair fall but can assist core medications. Certain Dermatologists advice procedures like PRP therapy, platelet rich plasma therapy when needed which may accelerate the rate of hair growth. PRP needs multiple sessions roughly at 6 weeks intervals. PRP is rich in components needed for the hair to grow and become healthier. However it is a top-up treatment and has to be done in parallel to the main medications for hair fall. PRP therapy is increasingly being accepted by dermatologists all over the world. The cost of single session widely varies depending upon manual PRP preparation or automated and the expertise of the dermatologist. For manual prepared PRP it should be in the range of Rs 5000 to Rs 7000 for a single session, however this is an estimate.
