Symptoms of iron deficiency

What are the symptoms of iron deficiency?

The symptoms that you can expect in a patient with iron deficiency would be things like pica - where you have an abnormal craving for chewing clay or eating ice. Things like lack of concentration, fatigue, cold intolerance, lack of energy, lack of concentration, inability to exercise or perform activities.

These are frequently symptoms that we attribute to anaemia, but they in fact can be because of iron deficiency. If you correct anaemia without correcting iron deficiency, you might have these residual symptoms.

That is why it is important to correct the underlying iron deficiency.
