How can youtell if you have iron deficiency?

Because thesigns and symptoms of iron deficiency (also termed anemia, iron deficiencyanemia, sideropenia, and hypoferremia) can be very subtle, only a blood testcan tell you for sure if your iron levels are too low. Anemia, which hasseveral definitions, including a depletion of functioning red blood cells, canresult from iron deficiency as well as other causes. However, some people withiron deficiency anemia have no recognizable symptoms at all. If the irondeficiency develops over a long time, causing an anemia that developsgradually, the body can adjust to the new state and you may not feel anysymptoms.

On the otherhand, if iron deficiency develops suddenly (such as the result of profoundblood loss) the body has less time to compensate, and you may notice symptomsof iron deficiency listed below right away.

Even whensymptoms of chronic, or long-term, iron deficiency are present, the symptomsare nonspecific and could be caused by a number of different problems.
