to learn about the signs and symptoms of iron deficiency anemia.

Why it matters

Iron deficiency anemia is the most common type of blood disorder, affecting millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the body doesn't have enough iron, which leads to too few blood cells. Because anemia often develops slowly and has symptoms that mimic those of other conditions, it is often overlooked. By familiarizing yourself with the signs, you may be able to spot it more easily, now or in the future.

Fun Fact

Crabs have blue blood! Theirs doesn't contain iron like ours does; it contains copper, which causes the blue hue.
