The Warning Signs You’re Lacking In Iron & How To Gain More Of It

Iron deficiency happens when your body does not have enough iron in it (Which is a mineral).


Our bodies need it because it makes a protein called hemoglobin now this is a red blood cell that carries oxygen to our bodies.


When there is not enough hemoglobin in your body, your tissues and muscles will not get the oxygen it needs around your body.


When there is a lack of hemoglobin in our body it leads to anemia.


There many types of anemia so do not get yourself confused with another one, this one (Iron deficiency is the most common one).


So this is really going to go through the common symptoms and what to do, because this has been requested so much I have to let you know.

 

More Tired Than Ever!

This is like the number one symptom that springs to my mind with iron deficiency.


When you lack iron you feel tired period.


The reason why you feel that way is because your body lacks the iron it needs to make that protein I was talking about hemoglobin…


Which helps carry oxygen around our bodies.


So not only do we have less oxygen reaching our tissues and muscles, which stops them from having any energy…

 

We then have to push even harder to move our oxygen blood around our bodies, this will then make you tired as it’s a hard job on next to nothing of oxygen!


 

The issue with this, why we don’t find out what is wrong with us, is everybody seems to be tired of something!


 

This is why I said more tired than ever, if you feel really really tired then do not ignore it you could be exp it.

 

Shortness Of Breath

It’s not just covid that causes shortness of breath.

Hemoglobin enables your red blood cells to carry oxygen freely around your body.


When the hemoglobin levels are low your breathing rate will drop, and your body will always try to get more oxygen.


So if you find yourself out of breath for just walking then it might not be Covid you may have low iron.


Headaches & Dizziness

Being low in Iron causes headaches, this is a trait mostly in women.

The symptoms for this seem very hard to point out, but mainly dizziness and feeling lightheaded.


I tried to do some digging into the link between iron deficiency and headaches but the evidence is still unclear.



 Who Should I Go To If I Believe I’m Iron Deficient?

If you think you’re going through symptoms of iron deficiency, you should make an appointment to see your doctor.

You really need to start eating enough iron through real foods too!


Here are 7 foods that are high in iron for you to start off with (Read More).


Only take the supplements if your doctor recommends it for you, as I’m not a doctor myself, so I’ve got to say that…

Although we all know how some poor doctors can be, so if your doctor sucks you already know what to do!


 

THAT’S IT!

 

I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys. Please do let me know, though…
