Elderly

In a woman’s golden years, blood loss and poor absorption are the most common causes of iron deficiency.

Use of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and aspirin over many years can damage the gastrointestinal tract and cause bleeding. Also, not producing enough stomach acid can interfere with iron absorption. Women in their golden years may also experience decreased appetite and consume a nutrient-poor diet that doesn’t contain enough iron, further increasing their risk of developing iron deficiency.

Finally, medications and chronic conditions (which are more common during this stage of life) can also increase the risk.

Although this has given me a bit of diarrhea, and loss of appetite I will continue on this medication. It is by far much better than any other iron supplement I have taken. I haven’t been on it long, and already notice I am not as tired and light headed. I am so happy to have found it. Thank you!*
