Iron deficiency among adolescents is an important aspect that should not be underestimated: in fact, in this phase there is an increase in tissue growth which requires a greater demand for this mineral. In addition, in girls the period of adolescence also coincides with the onset of menstruation, which involves a considerable loss of iron.
An unregulated diet can also be decisive for an iron deficiency. Teenagers often eat irregularly, preferring sweet and fatty foods to those rich in iron, such as meat, fish and legumes. This causes the manifestations of deficiencies to be more evident and the recovery slower. Therefore, to avoid deficiencies it is advisable to follow a balanced diet that includes the intake of meat as the iron present in vegatals is not bioavailable, so our body is unable to assimilate it. Fruit, especially those rich in Vitamin C, must never be missing, because it facilitates the absorption of iron.
Iron deficiency leads to iron deficiency anemia, which is particularly harmful during adolescence because it makes the supply of oxygen to tissues in the growth and development phase more complicated.
The symptoms of iron deficiency anemia are the same as those seen in adults: asthenia, chronic fatigue, skin pallor, tachycardia, somnolence and dyspnea on exertion. Sometimes celiac disease or other conditions are the cause of iron malabsorption.
