Iron and Your Thyroid

Symptoms of iron deficiency are similar to symptoms of thyroid disease which can make them difficult conditions to identify. A serum ferritin test, ordered by your healthcare provider, will help to determine your iron levels and whether you need to increase iron absorption in your daily routine.

Some symptoms of iron deficiency include:

  • Persistent fatigue
  • Pale skin
  • Heart palpitations
  • Shortness of breath
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness

Thyroid medications, iron supplements, and an iron rich diet are some of the ways to improve your iron levels and bring them into the optimum range for good health. Vitamins C, B6, B12, and Folic acid are some supplements that also help with natural iron absorption.

Speak to the Live Well team at Pharmasave Summerland about how you can achieve optimum health through diet and supplementation.
