Iron deficiency anemia is a common condition affecting children and women, especially those who are menstruating, with at least 20% experiencing iron deficiency. Symptoms such as paleness, fatigue, headaches, rapid pulse, or shortness of breath during exercise can develop gradually and may be overlooked. It is essential to determine if the body has sufficient iron to meet its needs.

  • Why Test for Anemia: Early detection of iron deficiency can help manage and treat the condition effectively.
