Did you know that many people go about their daily lives without realizing their body is low on iron? It is best to ensure you get all of the nutrients your body needs. Otherwise, you could end up dealing with a variety of health conditions. Here at Polmed Primary Care Walk-In Clinic, we can help with iron testing & injections in Safety Harbor to give you the answers you are looking for.
Do You Have Low Iron?
You may be physically fit but find that you sometimes gasp for air while walking up a flight of stairs or doing other physical activities. If you seem exhausted often, you may be low on iron. As a matter of fact, roughly 10% of women living in the U.S. are iron-deficient. Low iron in your diet can bring on adverse health disorders that present a broad range of symptoms.
Some of the top signs and symptoms of iron deficiency include:
- Extreme fatigue
- Shortness of breath
- Recurring headaches or migraines
- Lifeless or pale skin tone
- Brittle nails
- Swollen tongue
- Cardiovascular issues/thumping heart
- Heavy menstruation in women
- Increased anxiety
- Thyroid problems
- Strange cravings (chewing ice, paper, hair, chalk, etc.)
- Unexplained hair loss
At our full-service medical clinic, we have an onsite lab where we can help you with iron testing to get insight into what your body needs. We also provide patients with treatment that may include iron injections to help you get your body back to having normal iron levels to improve daily function and well-being.
