• Do I Have Iron Deficiency Anaemia ?

    The World Health Organisation estimates that more than 25% of the world’s population is affected by anaemia, with half of these cases being due to low iron levels – that’s a staggering 2 billion people. If this is the case, why don’t we know more about the condition and why aren’t more people being treated for it?

    Part of the explanation lies in the fact the symptoms can be non-specific, they can easily be confused with other illnesses, and can come on very gradually.
