It is extremely difficult to correct iron deficiency anaemia solely with an iron-rich diet. Supplementation (under the guidance of your medical practitioner) is usually required to treat a diagnosed iron deficiency.

Often athletes experiencing symptoms such as fatigue or lethargy turn to iron supplements to correct or prevent the problem. Currently, there is little evidence to indicate that iron supplementation improves aerobic capacity in athletes with depleted iron stores, who do not have anaemia. Further research is needed before iron supplementation is recommended for athletes without clinically diagnosed iron deficiency anaemia. Regular, inappropriate use of iron supplements can interfere with zinc and copper absorption and may have negative effects on the immune system.
