This is one of the benefits of participating in a clinical trial. If you have any questions about the compensation that participants may receive, please give us a call at (205) 757-8208.

Signs & Symptoms of Iron-Deficiency Anemia

The earliest signs of iron-deficiency anemia can be so mild that they often go unnoticed. This poses a real issue as this is the most common form of anemia. Once the body’s iron levels have dropped further, the symptoms will intensify.

The most common symptoms of iron-deficiency anemia include:

  • Weakness
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chest pain
  • Pale skin
  • Shortness of breath
  • Headaches
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Frequent infections
  • Poor circulation to your hands and feet
  • Brittle nails
  • Sore or inflamed tongue
  • Abnormal cravings for things like dirt, ice or starch
  • Exhibiting symptoms of restless legs syndrome (RLS)

(Children and infants are at risk for iron-deficiency as well. They may exhibit an increasingly poor appetite in addition to these other warning signs.)
