Do you feel too tired or weak? Iron deficiency could explain that

Iron Deficiency can make you feel tired

Do you often experience unexplained fatigue? While it is normal to feel tired sometimes, experiencing constant exhaustion indicates a serious underlying problem. You could be suffering from iron deficiency, world’s most common nutritional deficiency problem.

Iron is one of the most important components of hemoglobin, the protein in the red blood cells which carries the oxygen from lungs to every cell in the body. Insufficient iron in the body does not produce enough healthy oxygen carrying red blood cells and it can cause anemia. However, high iron levels are also not desirable. Both high and low levels of iron indicate serious medical problems.

Some common symptoms of iron deficiency include:

  • Extreme Fatigue
  • Pale Complexion
  • Unexplained weakness
  • Swollen Tongue
  • Fast Heartbeat
  • Hair Loss
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chronic headaches
  • Leg pains

Iron deficiency if left untreated can affect the body’s immune system and can result in complications such as abnormally fast heartbeat. It can also cause heart failure since the heart fails to pump enough blood at the right pressure. Pregnant women lacking sufficient iron also have higher risk of complications before and after childbirth.

Ferritin Test to measure Iron Deficiency

If the above symptoms persist, consult your doctor and request a ferritin test. A ferritin test requires a small quantity of blood to measure the iron stores in your body.
