@bernyc Iron deficiency affects up to one-third of the world's population, and it is more in people of older age with chronic heart conditions. According to various data, iron deficiency has detrimental effects in patients with coronary artery disease, heart failure (HF), and pulmonary hypertension. Change in lifestyle by exercising, eating rich food, and having a balanced diet can lower the risk of both iron deficiency and cardiovascular diseases. Thanks!
