Some fatigue, etc.,,: If there is any effect on the body, it would likely be some fatigue or lethargy, and some paleness. Since your levels are on the borderline, your symptoms, if any, would be very slight. If you increase your iron intake, especially in the form of lean red meats, there should be no problem, but you can also see your doctor to be sure. Good luck.
