If you think you’re suffering from Iron Deficiency, then the helpful points below could help to diagnose any issues you may be facing.

The symptoms of iron deficiency are subtle and can be mistaken for a ‘busy lifestyle’. If you have any of these symptoms, you may be low in iron and should see your doctor:

  • Tiredness (even after rest)
  • Lack of energy
  • Poor concentration
  • Irritability
  • Frequent infections

If you’re a young female, pregnant or breastfeeding, you may be at risk of iron deficiency. Women have increased requirements for iron due to:

  • Monthly blood loss associated with heavy periods
  • Support baby growth in pregnancy and during breastfeeding
  • Low meat intake, in particular low red meat intake

We recommend you plan your meals out each week. Look at easy ways you can incorporate red meat, like beef jerky, into your diet. However, if you still feel drained and tired then please consult a specialist.
