Iron deficiency

Did you know.... Iron deficiency is a common cause of fatigue and that studies have shown up to 80% female athletes may be iron deficient. 

"Additionally, athletes who are iron deficient may experience the following symptoms: nausea, frequent infections, shortness of breath during exercise, respiratory illness, fatigue, weakness, pale appearance, lack of energy, and exhaustion"

Talk to your doctor if you suspect you might be deficient.
