10 Symptoms of an Iron Deficiency

Symptom #2: Paleness

Another role of hemoglobin in the human body is to give skin its natural color. In cases when there are lower levels of iron in the blood than normal, the skin will become pale. Paleness can affect the entire body or it can be present in specific areas such as in the lower eyelids, inside of the lips, on the gums, on the nails, on the face, etc.

Besides having pale skin, those dealing with the low iron deficiency will also have a pale coloring on the inside of the lower eyelids. Paleness is usually noticed in cases of moderate and severe iron deficiency anemia.
