What are the most common symptoms of iron deficiency?

Exhaustion - the most common symptom that is also the most difficult to detect. Women are especially used to feeling tired because of juggling too many roles and responsibilities. As a result, they can easily dismiss exhaustion as a normal part of their lives. However, iron deficiency deprives the body of oxygen; therefore the body is deprived of the energy levels it needs. If feeling fatigue is coupled with feeling weak, irritable or lack of focus, then there is a big chance that you are suffering from iron deficiency.

You look pale - Iron deficiency means you have low hemoglobin or the red blood cells. This is what gives your skin its rosy tint. No matter what your skin tone is, being pale inside your lips, your gums and inside of your bottom eyelids, means you are likely to be iron deficient.

Shortness of breath - if you have low oxygen levels, no matter how deep you breathe, you will still feel out of air. Observe yourself and see if you easily get out of breath when doing things that you used to handle perfectly well.

Other signs to look out for:

  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Loss of hair

What are the common causes of iron deficiency?

  • Heavy menstruation
  • You don't get enough iron from your diet; especially true for vegans and vegetarians
  • Your body cannot absorb iron well.
  • You have bleeding inside your body.

Iron supplements

The most common option for preventing and dealing with iron deficiency is taking iron supplements. You need to take it 3 times a day and within a few days of taking it you may already start feeling better. But do not stop yet. It will take around 6 months of regular intake to bring iron back to normal levels. Page updated 06/04/18 12:47:36 p.m.
