Iron deficiency anaemia is caused by lack of iron, often because of blood loss or pregnancy. It’s treated with iron tablets prescribed by a GP and by eating iron-rich foods.

Check if you have iron deficiency anaemia,
Symptoms can include:
• Tiredness and lack of energy
• Shortness of breath
• Noticeable heartbeats (heart palpitations)
• Pale skin

Less common symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia (that are not usually connected to pregnancy) include:
• Headaches
• Hearing ringing, buzzing or hissing noises inside your head (tinnitus)
• Food tasting strange
• Feeling itchy
• A sore tongue
• Hair loss – you notice more hair coming out when brushing or washing it
• Wanting to eat non-food items, such as paper or ice (pica)
• Finding it hard to swallow (dysphagia)
• Painful open sores (ulcers) in the corners of your mouth
• Spoon-shaped nails
• Restless legs syndrome

You must see your healthcare professional if you have symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia – A simple blood test will confirm if you’re anaemic.

Things you can do yourself:
If your diet is partly causing your iron deficiency anaemia, your healthcare professional will tell you what foods are rich in iron so you can eat more of them.

Eat and drink more:
• Dark-green leafy vegetables like watercress and curly kale
• Cereals and bread with extra iron in them (fortified)
• Meat
• Dried fruit like apricots, prunes and raisins
• Pulses (beans, peas and lentils)

Eat and drink less (Large amounts of these foods and drinks make it harder for your body to absorb iron):
• Tea
• Coffee
• Milk and dairy
• Foods with high levels of phytic acid, such as wholegrain cereals, which can stop your body absorbing iron from other foods and pills

You might be referred to a specialist dietitian if you’re finding it hard to include iron in your diet.

When the VA thought I might have sleep apnea, they arranged for me to have a home sleep study test. They sent me this kit from WatchPAT. It was the easiest, most simple device I've used in a very long time. This video first tells you how I used the machine, then I have included screenshots from the WatchPAT APP showing the step-by-step process to use this device. It was not uncomfortable to wear at all, and the next morning it quickly uploaded the data to their server and I guess VA had the completed report in 2 days, since they called me to set up a follow up appointment - which will be in October, but that' ok by me.The music in this video I purchased a license from POND5:Riding My Motorcycle by WAVEBRIGADE

In this video, I go over the difference between the negative symptoms of schizophrenia and depression with psychosis. I also define negative vs. positive symptoms. Eugen Bleuler expanded our understanding of schizophrenia by introducing the 4 As: Alogia, Autism, Affective blunting and Ambivalence. These 4 As are now called negative symptoms of schizophrenia. Positive symptoms refer to delusions, hallucinations and disorganized thinking or behavior. WANT TO START IN THERAPY?
