FAQs

Without sufficient iron, the body cannot produce enough hemoglobin – the substance in red blood cells that enables them to carry oxygen to the body’s tissues and organs. This can be due to diet, heredity, external factors like surgery, internal bleeding, certain chronic blood disorders, gastrointestinal or kidney issues, or and pre-natal and postpartum situations.

It is important to note that iron deficiency anemia is a medical condition and disease state that requires medical care.

Because iron deficiency limits the amount of oxygen tissues and vital organs receive, depending on the severity and length of time of the deficiency, it can be very serious or even fatal.

Iron deficiency simply means having less than the desired amount of iron, while true iron deficiency anemia is more severe and represents an actual disease state requiring medical care.

Initially, iron deficiency symptoms can be so mild they often go unnoticed, but as the deficiency becomes more acute, the signs and symptoms worsen. Early symptoms can include:

  • Extreme fatigue/lethargy
  • Weakness
  • Pallor
  • Chest pain, fast heartbeat, shortness of breath
  • Headache, dizziness, lightheadedness
  • Coldness in the extremities
  • Brittleness in nails
  • Unusual cravings for non-food items (dirt, ice, starch, etc.)
  • Poor appetite
  • Excitability, lack of focus, or behavior problems in children

Iron deficiency is a common and serious problem in children, especially preemies and those who are picky eaters. Although iron deficiency affects fewer adults, it is fairly common. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, iron deficiency anemia is less common in adult males, but it affects roughly 12 percent of white females and nearly 20 percent of Black and Hispanic females in the United States.

According to a recent study published in Lancet Haemotology, iron deficiency is very common, affecting roughly one-third of all people and making it the single most widespread nutrient deficiency among adults and children alike. Iron deficiency is most common among women of child-bearing age.

While iron deficiency can exacerbate many health conditions, especially cardiac, pulmonary and circulatory problems, it plays a critical role in conditions like Restless Leg Syndrome, PICA, ADD, ADHD, Celiac disease, Crohn's disease and foot-strike hemolysis.

Iron deficiency can often be temporary or situational and will resolve after a shorter course of supplement treatment, more serious or chronic conditions can require long-term supplement usage or even transfusions. As with any other medical condition, it is best to consult with your physician on these issues to determine what’s best for you.
