While I have previously discussed the signs and symptoms of iron deficiency, I would like to introduce you to the Iron Deficiency/Iron Deficiency Anemia Symptoms Checker!
I have helped to create this Symptoms Checker, one for adults and one for children, in the hope that this tool will help identify your symptoms associated with iron deficiency and encourage a conversation with your healthcare provider for proper diagnosis.
Download Your Symptoms Checker:
If you (or your child) identify with any of the specified risk groups and are experiencing three or more of the symptoms listed in the Symptoms Checker, it is highly recommended to speak with your doctor regarding the possibility of being iron deficient. Even if you fall into one or more of the at-risk groups but are not symptomatic (or vice versa), it is advisable to speak with your doctor. If iron deficiency is discovered early enough, a change of diet and/or the use of an oral iron supplement may be all that is needed to help you feel better faster.
