I experience hair loss and angular stomatitis ... Or inflammation of the angles of my mouth. Are those strong enough indicators for iron deficiency?

In brief: May or may not

Iron deficiency can cause your symptoms but so can other conditions like pellagra or vit b deficiency and other vitamin and mineral deficiency.
It seems you have abdominal problems and malabsorption is a consideration. Go to your doctor and be examined. Fe-deficiency is easy to test, the others not so easy.
