Abstract: Hair loss is an important factor in clinical dermatology, as it has a major impact on the quality of human life, especially among women. This retrospective study aims to find a link between ferritin, Hb, TSH, zinc, vitamin B12 and vitamin D levels and the problem of hair loss in different age groups of women. Ferritin, zinc, Hb, TSH, vitamin B12 and vitamin D records were obtained from the 300 female patients who were all diagnosed with chronic diffuse hair loss with an estimated age span of 17 to 61 years and from 70 healthy females control group aged between 20 – 57 years old. The female patients (n=300) were divided into three age-based groups; 17 -32 (n=166), 33 -48 (n= 73) and 49 -61 (n= 61). The control group was classified by age, similar to the age groups of the female patients. The concentrations of ferritin, TSH and Hemoglobin (Hb) were found to be significantly reduced (p<0.05) in female patients aged between 17 to 32 years relative to the control group of similar age. No major decrease was seen in other biochemical parameters (Zn, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D) in this age group. In women aged between 33-48 years, TSH was found to be significantly decreased (p<0.05), along with a significant decrease in vitamin B12. A significant decrease in TSH (p<0.05), vitamin B12(P<0.05) and vitamin D levels (p<0.05) were observed in the older age group (49-61 years) relative to the control group of comparable ages. This study showed the relationship between levels of ferritin, TSH, zinc, Hb, vitamin B12 and vitamin D among women in different age groups suffering from the hair loss problem. The importance of this study is that the causes of hair loss have been clarified in different age groups, which can be relied on in deciding the treatment method at each age group
