Feel­ing tired

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - News -

‘A vi­ta­min B12 de­fi­ciency

causes a range of symp­toms, in­clud­ing de­bil­i­tat­ing fa­tigue,’ says Suzie. ‘Oth­ers may in­clude breath­ing prob­lems, rapid heart­beat, mem­ory and con­cen­tra­tion is­sues, weak­ness, bal­ance prob­lems, pins and nee­dles (in legs and feet), and numb­ness in the legs. Low iron lev­els can lead to anaemia, with symp­toms of tired­ness, pal­pi­ta­tions and short­ness of breath.’ Ask your GP for a blood test.

Fix it

Eat foods that con­tain vi­ta­min B12, such as poul­try, meat, eggs, fish and dairy prod­ucts. Foods that are high in iron in­clude red meat, liver, of­fal, nuts, eggs, dark, leafy greens, dried fruits (apri­cots, raisins), whole­grains, brown rice, nuts and beans.
