Iron deficiency is a condition whereby the body is deficient in iron, the component of hemoglobin that attaches itself to oxygen in order for it to be transported to vital organs in the body. With low levels of Iron in the blood, the amount of oxygen transported would be decreased leading to organ malfunction. Some symptoms of Iron deficiency include fatigue, irritability, overall pallor and decreased mental alertness.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Iron deficiency anemia is the most prevalent nutritional disorder in the world and women are most susceptible due to their monthly menstrual cycle.
A study conducted on Filipino women revealed that the average menstrual loss of iron is approximately 0.55mg/day and the condition is aggravated by low Iron intakes. Pregnant women who are in their third trimester are also at risk as that is the time where the fetus starts to draw iron from the mother for storage. If Iron stores are low in the mother, the fetus will get insufficient iron and it may affect proper fetal cognitive development.
Who is likely to be deficient?
Vegetarians eat less iron than non-vegetarians, and the iron they eat is somewhat less absorbable. As a result, vegetarians are more likely to have reduced iron stores.1 However, iron deficiency is not usually caused by a lack of iron in the diet alone. An underlying cause, such as iron loss in menstrual blood, often exists.
Pregnant women, marathon runners, people who take aspirin, and those who have parasitic infections, hemorrhoids, ulcers, Crohn’s issue, gastrointestinal issue, or other conditions that cause blood loss or malabsorption are likely to become deficient.
