I know the friend of mine who refered the derm to me, she has Androgenetic Alopecia, but her mom has it really badly too, she's almost bald. She has no inflammation and her thinning is on the crown, which in our case it's diffuse. The derm told her that usually women with Androgenetic Alopecia have a mom or grandmother or any female with hair loss. You and many others with SD don't , my mom is receding in the front (she's in her late sixties) but she has a lot of hair anywhere else on her head. It most definitely could be the inflammation. Hair doesn't grow in a unhealthy environment, so maybe if the inflammation is gone, the hair will grow back. My iron levels are low too, always have been. I don't know why, doctors say it's normal, a lot of woman my age have it.
