Iron deficiency anemia is a common type of anemia — a condition in which blood lacks adequate healthy red blood cells.
Red blood cells carry oxygen to the body's tissues, giving your body energy and your skin a healthy color.
Iron deficiency anemia is due to insufficient iron. Without enough iron, your body can't produce enough hemoglobin, a substance in red blood cells that enables them to carry oxygen. As a result, iron deficiency anemia may leave you tired, weak and pale.
Common causes of iron deficiency anemia include:
Blood loss eg. women with heavy periods
A lack of iron in your diet.
An inability to absorb iron
Iron deficiency anemia symptoms may include:
Shortness of breath
Dizziness or lightheadedness
Cold hands and feet
Inflammation or soreness of your tongue
Increased likelihood of infections
Irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia)
Unusual cravings for non-nutritive substances, such as ice, dirt or pure starch
Poor appetite, especially in infants and children with iron deficiency anemia
Restless legs syndrome — an uncomfortable tingling or crawling feeling in your legs
