What is an Iron Deficiency?
Iron Deficiency Anemia occurs when your body does not have enough to produce hemoglobin- the part of red blood cells that gives blood its red color and enables the red blood cells to carry oxygenated blood throughout your body.
Some symptoms of Iron Deficiency Anemia include:
- Pale skin
- Chest pain, fast heartbeat or shortness of breath
- Headache, dizziness or lightheadedness
- Cold hands and feet
- Inflammation or soreness of your tongue
- Brittle nails
- Unusual cravings for non-nutritive substances, such as ice, dirt or starch
