What is iron Deficiency?

If your body lacks healthy red blood cells, you may suffer from iron deficiency. Some symptoms of this type of anemia include feeling tired, having pale skin, and having trouble breathing. Heavy menstrual bleeding and pregnancy increase the risk of iron deficiency in women of childbearing age. Intestinal or gastric hemorrhage, an unhealthy diet, and malabsorption disorders are other potential reasons. Iron supplements treat iron deficiency, while iron-rich foods such as meat, dark greens, and fortified cereals are eaten. Neglected iron deficiency anemia can worsen preexisting diseases, stunt children’s development, and reduce immune function.

Causes of Iron Deficiency

During iron deficiency, the body lacks iron enough to produce hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to the blood. Insufficient iron intake or excessive iron loss can lead to a gradual worsening of anemia symptoms. Causes of iron deficiency anemia include chronic blood loss due to conditions like heavy menstrual periods or gastrointestinal bleeding, inadequate dietary iron intake, impaired iron absorption from the small intestine (as seen in conditions like celiac disease), and increased iron demand during pregnancy.

Symptoms of Iron Deficiency

Some of the symptoms of iron deficiency are listed below:

  • Being tired with little to no physical activity
  • Chest pain, fast heartbeat, or shortness of breath
  • Weakness
  • Pale skin
  • Inflammation or soreness of your tongue
  • Headache, dizziness, or lightheadedness
  • Brittle nails
  • Unusual cravings
  • Poor appetite
  • Cold hands and feet

Iron Deficiency Treatment

  1. Ferrous iron salt oral supplements are the most widely recommended treatment for iron deficiency anemia. Here are the main points regarding these medications:
  2. If you are looking for an affordable and widely used oral iron supplement, ferrous sulfate is best for you. Pills with 50-60 mg of elemental iron4 are on the market.
  3. The reduced iron content per tablet (25-50 mg) of other ferrous salts, such as ferrous gluconate and ferrous fumarate, may lead to fewer gastrointestinal side effects.
  4. Even though it works better when taken on an empty stomach, you can take iron orally with food if you experience gastrointestinal distress. Iron supplements can be better absorbed when taken with vitamin C.
  5. To quickly restore iron stores and hemoglobin levels3, blood transfusions or intravenous iron infusions may be required for severe iron deficiency anemia.
  6. Treatment for iron deficiency should also target underlying causes like bleeding or malabsorption disorders.

FAQs About Iron Deficiency

What is a low iron level for a woman?

A woman is considered to have low iron levels if her serum ferritin concentration is less than 30 μg/L, meaning her body stores less iron, and her hemoglobin level is below 12 g/dL. In adult females, a hemocrit level below the normal range of 35.5% to 44.9% might also indicate iron deficiency anemia.

What is the best treatment for iron deficiency?

The best treatment for iron deficiency is using external iron supplements to improve the body's iron deficiency. Additionally, you can include iron-rich foods in your diet to add iron to the body. Iron supplements take 3-6 months to recover from iron deficiency. Talk to our doctor for an iron deficiency prescription at Your Doctors Online.

Can I treat iron deficiency myself?

To treat iron deficiency, first, you need a correct diagnosis of the severity of your deficiency. This is only possible with doctor’s prescribed diagnosis tests. After diagnosis, your doctor will provide you with the best treatment options for your condition. If you self-treat without knowing the amount of iron your body needs, you will do more damage than it already has.

What is the fastest way to cure anemia?

The fastest way to cure anemia is via blood transfusions that help increase the number of red blood cells rapidly in your blood. However, these transfusions are only prescribed by your doctor in severe cases of iron deficiency.

What low iron feels like?

A low amount of iron in the body can have serious consequences, as the lack of hemoglobin reduces red blood cells and cause anemia. It makes you feel tired and weak, and your skin appears pale. Moreover, it can occasionally cause shortness of breath and chest pain.

What is a normal iron level for a woman?

Iron measurement in the body is done in micrograms per deciliter (mcg/dL). For women, the normal level of iron in the body is 50-170 mcg/dL, while for a man, 70-175 mcg/dL.

How long does it take to get iron levels up?

Taking prescribed iron supplements can help increase iron levels in 3-7 days; however, restoring hemoglobin levels may take some time. If your deficiency is severe, it may take up to 2 months and even more for complete recovery. While taking iron supplements, you may experience some side effects like stomach pain, nausea, and constipation.

How can I raise my iron levels quickly?

To raise iron levels quickly, you should consult your doctor for suitable iron supplements and add additional sources of iron in your diet as well like spinach and other dark leafy vegetables, seafood, beans, red meat, iron-fortified cereals, peas, and dry fruits like apricots and raisins.

Can low iron affect babies during pregnancy?

Low iron levels can affect both mother and child during pregnancy. It can cause birth defects like low weight during birth, maternal illness, premature delivery, and intrauterine growth complications. Moreover, it can affect the fetal brain if the mother has iron deficiency.

How can I increase my iron while breastfeeding?

Certain supplements contain iron and vitamin C. Doctors recommend mothers take those supplements or iron supplements with orange juice or vitamin C supplements to increase the iron uptake in the blood. Some other vitamin supplements like zinc and calcium should be avoided with iron and vitamin C as they can reduce iron uptake when taken together. Consult a doctor at Your Doctors Online to increase your iron intake during breastfeeding.

What happens if mothers have low iron while breastfeeding?

Iron deficiency has many consequences but post-delivery, they become more serious as the baby’s health is directly associated with the baby’s health. Low iron can affect your mood, makes you irritable and at risk of postpartum depression. Fatigue due to iron deficiency also makes breastfeeding difficult.
