Always feeling tired? Join the ‘30-Day Power Challenge’
Feel the power to win by taking care of your blood health

Do you always feel tired and dizzy? Or do you find yourself looking pale? What do you think is the reason?

We asked our Rappler readers via this post what they think.

Most of them blame stress and lack of sleep.

Some also shared that it could also be because of their unhealthy habits which are taking a toll on their bodies.

But did you know that these could be symptoms of Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA)?

What is IDA?

Iron Deficiency Anemia or IDA is caused by low levels of iron which can affect production of hemoglobin and result in low supply of red blood cells.

The common symptoms of anemia include frequent dizziness, fatigue, weakness, and paleness – conditions which we sometimes think are only a result of stress and lack of sleep like what some of our followers shared.

But in fact, 11.1% of Filipinos suffer from IDA or are anemic. It’s because many things can cause a person to be anemic. Anemia can be caused by nutritional deficiencies in iron, folate or vitamin B12 which can be due to inadequate and imbalanced diet such as those lacking meat and fish sources.

Anemia can also be present during pregnancy, frequent blood donation, surgery or any procedure that causes blood loss.

While every person is prone to IDA, infants, pregnant women, and the elderly are more at risk. IDA can lead to more serious conditions like lung failure, heart failure, and pregnancy complications.

That’s why we shouldn’t ignore the possible symptoms of IDA that we’re feeling and start treating it even before the symptoms get worse.
