    Why am i so pale and yellow looking??

    I need to ask those who might know why i look so pale and yellow looking? When i look at others they have color to their face like redness, and i look very pale and yellow. I am of hispanic origin and so i have olive colored skin, but its yellowish and with no healthy looking color...I do feel tired alot and sluggish...Could you tell me what might be wrong? What could i have ?? How can i correct this? I do take vitamins.

    The paleness, along with the sluggishness could be an iron deficiency. I would suggest getting a blood test to check this out. The yellowish tinge could be an involvement of the liver as in newborns that are jaundiced (with a yellow tinge to the skin).

    Hi Matt
    I did have a blood test run for complete CVC, and my doc said i was slightly anemic...and now i am going to start IRON, but i wonder about the pale yellow look? I think its my liver...Is there a way to correct this with any certain type of nutrition?
