How do I know if I have iron deficiency anemia?


Sometimes I have moments when I get really cold, pale, dizzy, my legs and arms feel heavy, and I feel like I'm going to faint. I suspect it may be iron deficiency anemia but I want to get a second opinion. Any help?
----------

You are exhibiting most of the signs and symptoms of anemia. but anemia can be caused by several other conditions and not just the iron deficiency. It would be wise to go to your doctor so he can run some blood/lab test to rule out any other problems you have. A family/general practice doctor will be good enough to do this for you. or you can go directly to an internal medicine doctor. try taking some over the counter iron supplements to alleviate your symptoms while you are waiting for the doctor to see you.  (+ info)

Creative ideas for a project about iron deficiency anemia?


I have to do a project in anatomy about iron deficiency anemia. We have to include the various blood tests she would have such as WBC count and platelet count and the results. Any ideas? I've always just done powerpoints and would like to do something more original but I'm having a hard time thinking of anything.
I'm not in medical school. It's just a high school anatomy class, it's not a specific division it's more of a broad overview.
