This happened: I had an iron deficiency for years, perhaps decades before I finally figured it out how to effectively treat it. Iron deficiency treatment is far from perfect and there are many myths about food sources and supplements of iron. Why would a nutritionist not know how to recognize their own iron deficiency?! In hindsight, I should have known. I should have been more proactive. However, deficiency can be so subtle, it is challenging to read by symptoms alone. If it can happen to me, it might happen to you, especially if you are female and of reproductive age.
