Iron deficiency is a widespread nutritional deficiency, especially in women during pregnancy and in people taking a low iron-rich diet. Its lack causes anaemia. This usually happens when your body does not have enough iron to make haemoglobin, which carries oxygen from the lungs to the bloodstream. The energy in the body is related to the circulation of oxygen. If there is a decrease in the level of iron in the blood, then oxygen will not be adequately circulated, making you feel more tired than usual. Various such symptoms are clear indications of iron deficiency, which can be rectified by taking a proper diet.
