In brief: Vague & not specific
These include fatigue, low energy, poor concentration, mental sluggishness, and poor appetite specially for meat.
Usually edema is present, but not necessarily. These vague symptoms should not be used for diagnosis due to being vague and could occur with other illnesses, hence the importance of lab. For instance the top 4 symptoms above can occur to healthy persons after a long work day.
