Learn about Iron Deficiency
Iron is needed by your body to produce energy and to improve your mood and concentration. Normally there is a healthy balance between the supply of iron in your diet and the amount that your body needs. Despite this, there are many ways that you can become iron deficient, for example through blood loss or if your diet does not supply enough iron. Amongst other symptoms, this can lead to fatigue. You might experience fatigue as feeling “listless”, “washed out”, or “cranky”. Other signs that you might be iron deficient include looking pale, feeling the cold, dizziness and craving to eat non-food items.
