Feeling weak

My 13 yr son has had a problem with suddenly feeling weak ever since he was young. This might occurr about once a day, sometimes twice. People say try iron tablets (which he has done) etc. Has anyone had a similar experience and come up with a solution - dietwise or other? Thanks.

I assume your doctor hasn't felt concerned.

Might be anemia, taking iron only helps if there's a deficiency. Have you tried vitamin B12? Sometimes taking more than the recommended dosage is required (there are actually prescription strength B12's).

Some people who are becoming hypoglycemic feel weak...adding extra protein to each meal would help if that's it.
