Who iron tracking is relevant for

Menstruating women

Almost 20% of women of "reproductive age" - that means that they are menstruating - have an iron deficiency. The reason for this is, that with each period, they lose quite a bit of iron.

Vegans & vegetarians

Meat is a big source of iron. That is why eating little or no meat can easily lead to an iron deficiency in both women and men unless you intentionally incorporate iron-rich food in your diet.

Previous iron deficiency

If you had iron deficiency in the past and you did not change anything about your diet or your life style, it is very likely that you will develop iron deficiency again.

Treatment options if you have iron deficiency

  • Supplements
  • Iron drip
  • Dietary change

Iron supplements

If you have an iron deficiency, you first need to replenish your iron stores. The most common way to do that, is to take iron pills, which you can get at any pharmacy.

Important to know: Iron is better absorbed if you take it with Vitamin C. So take your iron pills with some orange juice.

To make sure, that treatment worked, you should re-test about 6 weeks after you started taking iron supplements.

Iron drip

If you have a very severe iron deficiency or if supplements are not working well, you can also get an iron drip.
 
Usually, it´s the fastest way to replenish your iron stores. It is, however, a lot more expensive than supplements and it requires a doctor´s visit. You might require one or more drips.
 
Just like with supplements, it always makes sense to re-test 4 to 6 weeks after you received treatment to make sure that your iron levels are back to normal.

Nutrition advice

You take in iron through your food. So if you have developed an iron deficiency, your diet is probably not providing you with enough iron to cover what your body uses or loses (for example through menstruation).
 
Getting advice on how to change your diet to cover your iron needs based on your lifestyle can help prevent recurring iron deficiency. It might just require a few tweaks to your normal meal plan.
