What is the optimal serum ferritin level for hair health? Can heavy periods and/or a vegetarian diet w/inadequate iron intake cause low ferritin level

It can be easily addressed by taking oral iron and multivitamins. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Rarer causes include aplastic anemia and myelodysplastic syndrome (mds). If not clear to your doc, may need to see hematologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Most vegan sources of protein e.G beans, tofu, tempeh, seitan, nuts, seeds, have fair amounts of the other nutrients as well. The more restricted a diet, the greater the chances for imbalance (old insight-hippocrates wrote it). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sure, but...: Those no carb diets all work by the same mechanism every diet on earth works by: less calories in.

Try it and see (myfitnesspal is a great app for this). Every 3500 cal missed (or so), another pound will fall off. ...Read more
