welcome to health care magic forum,
Dear there are many reasons for low Hb, and for this full case taking is must, and your hair fall is because of low Hb count. you are feeling tired because of low Hb.
But as you have mentioned that your weight suddenly increased upto 12 kgs cannot be ignored and need some investigations, do you have any period problem or not your thyroid level should be checked.

Here are some tips to prevent hair fall
Gently massage your scalp with fingertips after applying a hair oil.
Eat Aamla in any form early in the day. It also increase your HEMOGLOBIN level.
Eat all types of vegetables & fruits. This will ensure supply of minerals
and vitamins essential for hair growth.
Also eat protien rich food items.
While bathing, wash your head with cold water only.
It is winter and water is ice - cold, you can make it luke warm.
Dandruff is a cause of hair loss. Squeeze half a lemon to half a liter
of water and rinse your hair and scalp with this water as a cure to
dandruff. Do this no more than three times a week and for upto a month.
Rosemary oil is an aromatherapy oil, which can be applied to your hair
once in a week to reduce hair fall.
Never apply soap or high power shampoo on your head,
as it can affect healthy gowth of hair
Take Homeopathic treatment for your hair fall and use Homeoapthic hair oil
& shampoo.

to increase hb level
just take iron tablets along with folic acid for about six months

anaemia(low hb) may be the cause of hair fall. so increase in hb relives this.

welcome to healthcare magic
as per your complaints i suggest you to go for thyroid profile test.
sudden increse in weight,hair fall are sugesstive for thyroid.
are your menses regular??your appetite??is it decreased,??if your appetite is decreased and still your putting on weight than definately your suffering from hypothyroidism.
if it is so than go for thyroid test.. good luck
and yes there is treatment available for your complaint in homeopathy.if you are thyroid patient or not it matter a little for homeopath as we treat patient as a whole not just disease.

ur count is low. check for cause of this by consultation of a physician.u may have execissive amount of menstrual bleeding or parasiting infestation. so first rule out it. if all is clear you can take iron tablets once daily for 1 to 2 months. in food take lot of green leafy veg with proteins and citrus foods like lemon,orange. if menstrual problem meet a gynecologist.anemia may be the cause of hair some exercises.take low calorie food .more stress on fruits. take food 2 hr. before will reduce ur wt.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
First of all since your weight has increased please get test for thyroid done to rule out hypothyroid.Secondly hair fall can be due to anaemia as your Hb level is quite low also please understand that it cannot be increased by diet alone you will have to take Iron& folic acid combination tablets for about 3 months & then recheck the Hb levels.The tiredness is because of anaemia ;you require treatment please consult a doctor.

Hi !
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Firstly for your significant weight gain you need to be investigated.Did you take any hormonal or steriodal based medicines for any complaints in the last few months coz. they also increases the wieght. Get your thyroid level checked. For increasing your Hb % start taking Beetroots, jaggery ang groundnuts, Dates and Pomegranate juice, green leafy vegetables. This wii reduce your hair fall too.Start Syrup Ferrum Plus(bakson's) 1Tsf 3 times daily for raising Hb %. There are very good Homoeopathic medicines for maintaining Hb %, preventing Hairfall and Dandruff, so consult a Homoeopath nearby.

Thanks and take care

Welcome to Healthcaremagic

The significant increase in weight means some underlying disease, you must get done all your blood work. Hypothyrodism can be the main cause for it. Low hb level indicates the anaemia, which is also causing the hair fall. You should start taking the vitamin b12 for anaemia.This vitamin is usually found in animal protein, especially in meats such as kidney and liver. There are, however, other equally good sources of vitamin BI2 such as dairy products which also contain some B12 .

Beets are very helpful in curing anaemia. Beet juice contains potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sulphur, iodine, iron, copper, carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins B1 B2, B6, niacin, and vitamin b12. With their high iron content, beets help in the formation of red blood cells. Besides that almonds,spinach,soyabeans, honey, black sesame seeds are the rich sources of iron. Eating amla in any form or drinking its juice too helps in preventing hair fall.

Homeopathy has a good success rate in curing conditions like anaemia, hair fall and obesity, so can certainly consult a Homeopath.
