What do fatigue, a weakened immune system and impaired brain activity have in common? It turns out they’re all symptoms of iron deficiency. An astonishing number (35 to 58 percent), of young, healthy females experience low iron levels at one time or another and the number goes slightly higher during pregnancy. By the time a woman is diagnosed with anaemia, her iron levels can be in the red zone.
So what does a low iron count mean? It’s actually a sign the body isn’t making enough healthy red blood cells to deliver oxygen from the lungs to the body’s tissues. About 70 percent of the body’s iron floats around in the blood in the form of hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries and delivers oxygen to the body’s tissues in order for it to stay alive. Myoglobin, a protein in the heart and skeletal muscles, also requires iron to function efficiently.
