Iron Deficiency Disorders

Iron deficiency disorders are typically caused by diseases that impair proper absorption into the blood, or those which cause blood loss. Untreated iron deficiency can lead to iron deficiency anemia (a lack of red blood cells) — a common type of anemia. Stomach ulcers, colon cancer, and menstrual disorders that cause heavy bleeding should be addressed immediately to prevent the more serious complications of iron deficiency anemia.

Symptoms Of Iron Deficiency Include;
• General body weakness
• Pale, thinning, brittle nails
• Sleep disturbances or insomnia
• Dizziness
• Sore tongue
• Sensitivity to cold or a low body temperature
• Loss of interest in activities and relationships
• Chronic fatigue
• Shortness of breath even after doing commonly easy tasks
• Restless leg syndrome
