Are you deficient?: It warns of possible iron deficiency even before you become anemic. Your physician knows what to do to evaluate possible causes. If you are a non-meat-eater or have heavy monthly loss, you may have a supplement recommended for you, or a search for a source of bleeding may be in order.
