Have You Had Problems With Iron?

By Tom Herrin

Many people have some kind of problems with nutrients from time to time.  It can sneak up on them and show up unexpectedly without giving notice.  A lot of the causes may be dietary, others may be something that is going on in their life or physical development.  One of things that is pretty common is iron deficiency.  It may be due to growth and development, injury, or some activity that depletes the supply.  Some medications can also cause low iron as a side effect.  It is a great personal responsibility to know and recognize the symptoms of something such as this in order to be able to better treat it.

Common Symptoms

There are usually a few common signs that people have if their iron is low.  One of the most recognizable is that they will most likely be tired, weak, or feeling run down.  It may beparticularly noticeable if they previously had much more energy.  A somewhat sudden drop in energy level could be a good indicator that iron could be the problem.  Another sign of iron deficiency can be confusion when they try to perform some mental tasks.

The Jobs Of Iron

The most commonly known job of iron for most people is that iron is necessary for oxygen to be transported throughout the bloodstream.  When people are low on iron, they become extremely out of breath while doing somewhat simple tasks.  This is due to the fact that there is not adequate oxygen to enable the release of energy when burning food for fuel.  The other big job of iron is to transport nerve impulses.  When people are low on iron, they may seem to have problems that appear to be dementia instead.

Low Iron Is Usually A Simple Fix

Iron is one of the things that has been available in supplement form for quite some time without any kind of prescriptions.  It can be purchased in various forms according to need.  Many foods also have iron added.  Reading labels is an easy way to be sure of what you are buying.  If you suspect you may be low on iron, the easy and inexpensive way to find out is to go to a blood donor center or mobile blood drive.  They will stick your finger and check your iron.  If you are low, they will give you some information on what to do and send you on your way.  If your iron is good, you will be able to donate and, possibly, help save a life.  Either way, you come out a winner.
