Why Blood Iron Levels are Important

If you are not consuming enough iron then there is a good chance you have a deficiency in your body. Iron is a mineral and it’s primary job is to move oxygen from the lungs to the rest of our body.

The hemoglobin, which is mostly comprised of it, gives blood it’s red color.

It is also responsible for keeping the body and immune system in good working order. If a person has an iron deficiency then their body starts to make less red blood cells and oxygen is not delivered to the body as efficiently as it should.

The result is feeling tired, fatigued, having low energy reserves and a compromised immune system.

It is very common to find iron deficiencies in newborns, toddlers, children, pregnant women and women during their time of the month (especially if there is heavy bleeding). Keeping your iron levels high is essential or you will have a high chance of becoming anemic. On the other hand, too much iron can result in other health complications if the body ends up storing too much of it.

If you have been feeling any of the symptoms listed above then it is wise to consult the doctor. They will give you a complete physical and look closely at your symptoms. You are likely to give blood so the doctor can know your total blood count. If additional testing is required you can expect an endoscopy or colonoscopy.

The treatment is dependant on what caused the problem and what the doctor diagnoses. An iron supplement is likely to be recommended and should be taken for at least 1 or 2 months so that they can build up in the body. It is likely that you will be feeling better within a couple days to a week. This is considering that your body actually absorbs it.

An iron injection is the next step if the tablets don’t do the trick. Extremely severe cases can even require a blood transfusion. Make sure that there is plenty of iron in your diet so you can avoid all of this. Some foods that should be eaten are red meat, breads, spinach, peas, beans, fish, poultry and eggs. It is especially easy for vegetarians or vegans to have low iron levels. So try especially hard to find iron rich foods.

There are several homeopathic remedies that can help to strengthen your body’s iron absorption. Ferrum phosphoricum, Ferrum metallicum and Calcarea phosphorica strengthens the ability of the body to absorb iron and it’s ability to trasport oxygen around. They can also help to keep your hemoglobin levels higher.
