Learn More about Folate Deficiency Symptoms
Folate or B12 deficiency can lead to anemia. Vitamin B helps the body to produce new
cells. Folic acid helps to create red blood cells, and these cells are very important in
carrying oxygen throughout the body.
What Happens When You Have Folate Deficiency?
When you have Folate deficiency, your medical history plays an important role in
revealing the underlying cause of this deficiency. The lack of folic acid and thus, the
inability to form red blood cells adequately, makes your body weak and tired, since the
oxygen supply is not sufficient. A deficiency most often happens when your diet lacks
foods that are rich in folic acid.
Patients with folate deficiency often complain about sore tongue or about painful
swallowing. Some common folate deficiency symptoms include headaches, irritability,
lethargy, weakness, behavioral disorders and heart palpitations. People with anemia can
also have loss of appetite and weight loss. Visit Methyl-Life to learn more about Folate
Sometimes, you might also experience headaches, heart palpitations, tinnitus, paleness,
numbness, and even feel depressed. This may be happening due to inadequate oxygen
supply to your heart and brain. The most common cause of folate deficiency is an
unbalanced diet, pregnancy or sometimes underlying systemic disorders.
