Irene Blanken’s Activities

I never share personal messages on LinkedIn, but I feel the urge to share my experience along with this NYT article on research (The Lancet) showing iron deficiency diagnosis is often missed in women. The severe consequences like fatigueless and poor concentration can highly affect (private life and) performance at work. After noticing I was feeling faint and fatigued, I requested blood tests at my GP. It turned out I was iron deficient. When talking about this with female friends and colleagues, it turned out I was not the only one. I found out multiple women around me first experienced some vague complains (like brain fog, fatigue and light-headedness) but felt this is just ‘part of being a woman’ and initially did not have any knowledge on the role of iron in our bodies. Eventually, we needed to advocate for ourselves to get proper iron measurement and follow up at the GP. As NYT states “the condition is rarely tested for”. Symptoms include fatigue, cognitive issues like brain fog, shortness of breath, headache and sleep disorders. Even more worrisome is that according to latest estimates more than a third (!!) of women under 50 are iron deficient. This is huge. So, if you are a woman (especially if you are menstruating and/or following a predominantly vegetarian diet) and you experience some of the vague complaints mentioned above, please ask your doctor for iron deficiency screening (blood test) so you can be treated. .Read More
