Iron deficiency, although starting out as a nuisance, can turn into a grave condition called anemia. In our everyday life, we may lose iron in numerous ways, so it’s vital to know how to prevent and treat this condition.
Iron deficiency happens when the body doesn’t have enough of the mineral iron, which is responsible for producing hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that enables them to carry oxygen around the body.
