In brief: Low iron,thyroid
Many things can lead to hair loss including heredity, iron deficiency, an under active thyroid or hormone abnormalities associated with polycywtic ovaries.
Temporary cause of hair loss include high fever, anesthesia, medications, rapid weight loss, and hair loss after delivering a baby. A proper diagnosis needs an exam and blood tests.
