ABSTRACT
The article offers information on iron deficiency and its two levels, with or without anaemia, noting that it is a common cause of fatigue among athletes. It states that iron is an essential component of haemoglobin and suggests that low ferritin levels lead to iron deficiency anaemia. It also suggests treatment and prevention which involves consuming products like fish, spinach, and legumes rich in haem and non-haem iron, and states the dangers of supplementing in case of no iron deficiency.
