Symptoms of iron deficiency in seniors

Symptoms of iron deficiency in seniors

(NC)—Dr. Cathy Carlson-Rink, a licensed naturopathic physician and registered midwife, points out some of the symptoms of iron deficiency in seniors:

• Decreased cognitive function

• Dizziness

• Apathy

• Decreased ability to concentrate

• Increased frequency of infection

• Paleness

• Dark circles under the eyes

• Brittle hair and nails

• Shortness of breath

• Restless legs, and cold hands and feet.

Dr. Carlson-Rink also says “a serum ferritin test is the best way to identify iron deficiency. For years, I have recommended Salus Floradix, a liquid iron supplement that is plant-based, so it does not lead to iron overload, and is also additive and preservative free.”
