Anemia is a disease that often occurs in our society, not only in adults,  anemia can also attack teenagers.

Women need higher iron intake than men, because it is not only used for growth, this intake of iron is also used to replace iron lost through the blood that comes out every month during menstruation.

That is why women are more at risk of experiencing iron deficiency or anemia. Anemia in adolescent girls can have long consequences. It is important for you to know the symptoms or characteristics anemia or lack of blood, including;

Fatigue

This one symptom is very common and occurs a lot, it happens because the body needs iron to make a blood protein called hemoglobin.

Shortness of breath

Lack of hemoglobin levels in the blood can result in a lack of supply of oxygen throughout the body. As a result, the chest will feel tight even if only doing light activities.

Pale

One of the main symptoms anemia is a skin that looks paler, because hemoglobin is a red dye in the blood. That’s why when you lack hemoglobin levels, the skin color will look paler.

Heart Beat Fast

When the body is deficient in iron, the heart will generally experience palpitations or beats quickly exceeding normal conditions
