Hiding hunger is a condition that significantly reflects the state of the body and, according to the World Health Organization, is defined as the lack of essential vitamins of minerals and nutrients.
We all know that quality nutrition is the foundation of health and that our body needs vitamins and minerals essential to function. When vital nutrients are lacking, the organs may not function as they should, and this may manifest badly in our health.
Hidden hunger occurs when the food we eat, though it may fill the stomach, does not meet our nutritional needs. It indicates that food does not have enough nutrients that are crucial for the growth, development and optimal functioning of the body.
It is estimated that two billion people worldwide suffer from deficiencies of vitamins and minerals and some other nutrients, among which the most common iron deficiency.
Hidden hunger can occur in anyone who does not follow a well-balanced diet.
It is difficult to diagnose because it may not have visible symptoms, so we often think that we are tired or that our headaches are hurt, and we are actually hungry.
Over time, deficiencies of these nutrients can lead to a number of serious health problems such as visual impairment, impaired immune system and anemia.
The most common drawbacks are vitamin A, iodine and iron. Over time, this can lead to serious health problems such as visual impairment, impaired immune system and anemia.
Common signs that indicate a potential shortage of iron are extreme fatigue, weakness, pale skin, cold extremities, shortness of breath during exercise and walking, poor appetite and painful tongue and difficulty swallowing.
However, it is important to know that iron is not the only one that can affect the formation of red blood cells. Vitamin B12 and folic acid are also nutrients that affect the development of erythrocytes. When you do not get tired, you may feel lack of concentration, tingling in your arms and legs, frequent headaches and even depression.
