Sufficient Iron is imperative
There is considerable evidence that there is a iron level issue especially with high school girl athletes. Insufficient iron in the body will affect academic and athletic performance along with experiencing other potential symptoms such as tiredness and cold hands. The test is easy and not that expensive. Most of the girl’s who have been found low in iron have been advised by their doctors on how to eat properly to bring up their iron levels. Some have required doctor prescribed medication. The girls who did have lower levels of iron all noticed significant improvement in how they felt and performed after bringing up their iron levels via eating right or taking the prescribed medication.
