Iron it out with Iron
A young female in her mid-
After a check up that was all normal, basic blood tests were done, which resulted in a lower than normal haemoglobin level (red blood cells) and the iron levels in the body were low as well.
This was a result of heavy menstruation with blood clots, that often left her feeling tired and worn out and she was already seeing a gynaecologist about this problem, so it was being taken care of.
A very common cause of blood loss in the female body is due to the monthly menstrual cycle. Blood loss from the intestinal system and red blood cell breakdown due to the impact of the foot on the ground whilst running are other causes, and this is usually seen in male athletes.
It is important to supplement iron in the diet, with green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and kale. If iron is still lacking or on the low side, iron supplements are highly recommended in order to restore adequate iron and in turn haemoglobin levels, so that you can return to your previous high level of sports activity.
Once the athlete was provided with appropriate iron supplementation, her haemoglobin level returned to normal resulting in a return to previous sporting performance and less fatigue throughout the day.
