It may be a sign of an iron deficiency if you’ve ever felt unexpectedly weak or fatigued when exercising or even just standing. If left untreated, an iron deficiency can lead to serious consequences. Fortunately, there are a few ways to treat iron deficiency so that it does not create serious health concerns or become a long-term problem.
Treating iron deficiency
There are a few ways to treat iron deficiency, though some are more effective than others, so depending on the nature of your condition, you may choose different options.
Change your diet
If you’re looking to slowly and naturally increase the amount of iron in your body, one way is to start eating more iron-rich foods. Certain green leafy vegetables, nuts, and other items are great sources of iron. This can take a while but may be a good option for those with mild iron deficiency.
Take oral supplements
We all know about over-the-counter vitamins and supplements. If you’re trying to get more iron in your diet and eating iron-rich foods isn’t an option or isn’t doing enough, you might consider taking an iron supplement.
Iron IV therapy
One of the best ways to raise your iron levels quickly is with iron IV therapy. You can get a large dose of iron administered directly into your bloodstream that works quickly to correct a low iron level.
