When to Seek Care for Anemia Symptoms
Iron-deficiency anemia is a common type of anemia that occurs when your body does not have enough iron. Iron is necessary for the production of hemoglobin, which helps to carry oxygen throughout your body. If you are deficient in iron, you may experience a variety of symptoms, including fatigue, pale skin, breathlessness, and dizziness.
While signs and symptoms of iron-deficiency anemia may vary, Advance ER can provide diagnostic testing to detect the cause and treat symptoms promptly. For 24/7 emergency care, reach out to us at (214) 494-8222.
