Dear Maradon

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

Iron deficiency is not a diagnosis but a symptom of an underlying pathology. I would suggest that you consult a GP to have blood work done to determine what type of anemia you have and what your serum iron levels are. Once this is done, one can embark on the correct treatment.

Kind regards
