Your body needs iron to produce the protein known as hemoglobin. Hemoglobin binds to red blood cells, gives red blood cells their red color and carries the oxygen in the blood to the cells throughout the body. Cells need oxygen to function. Low iron levels mean the production of hemoglobin decreases. Without hemoglobin, red blood cells cannot function and oxygen levels drop, causing symptoms similar to peripheral neuropathy. An iron deficiency severe enough to cause symptoms is known as iron-deficiency anemia.

Good dietary sources of iron are found in poultry, beef, pork in all cases particularly the liver.  From most types of beans and oatmeal.  Although fish also has iron, it is usually in much lower quantities than land animal based meats.

Iron-deficiency anemia causes a variety of symptoms that can range from mild to severe, depending on the extent of the deficiency. The symptoms occur due to the lack of oxygen in the blood. The main symptom of iron-deficiency anemia is fatigue. Other symptoms include shortness of breath, dizziness, headache and chest pain. Low iron levels can also cause numbness, tingling or feelings of coldness usually felt in the hands or feet. The lack of oxygen also causes muscle weakness. Although these two symptoms resemble those of Peripheral Neuropathy, iron-deficiency anemia does not result in permanent nerve damage and can be treated.  The numbness and tingling associated with low iron levels which resembles Peripheral Neuropathy disappear when the iron levels increase.
