Did you know that your body can actually be starving for iron, even if your doctor says your blood test look “normal”?! If you’re struggling with the life draining symptoms of low iron, but your doctor seems to think everything is fine...you’re gonna want to stick around for this post!
You’ve probably heard people say they’re ‘anemic’ because their blood tests indicate a low hemoglobin level.
But...did you know that being considered anemic is actually the second stage of iron deficiency and that most doctors never even order the test to identify the first stage of low iron?!
Sounds crazy, right?! But You can actually be severely iron deficient and still have a ‘normal’ hemoglobin level!
