Top 5 Signs of Chromium Deficiency

Wednesday, 10 November 2010 04:24 PM EST

Chromium is a trace element required by the human body, and deficiency of chromium can result in diabetes and atherosclerosis. The U.S. tops the list of the number of people suffering from chromium deficiency. Here are the top five symptoms of chromium deficiency for easy reference:
  1. You may experience a sudden and abrupt rise in anxiety levels. You may get lightheaded, anxious, and your heart may start racing even after doing some light exercise. This happens because as the level of chromium in the blood decreases, the body’s ability to control anxiety also decreases. So even when you are exposed to low levels of stress, the body shifts into proactive mode and tells you to be on high alert.
  2. A sudden decrease in energy levels is another sign of chromium deficiency. You might be getting enough sleep, yet you may find that you are getting tired easily. If this symptom lasts for more than three to four days, it is cause for concern.
  3. If you have chronic fatigue and anxiety, you should visit your doctor for a glucose tolerance test. If your doctor suspects chromium deficiency, the determination of blood sugar levels will help him or her prescribe medication to protect the body’s insulin making ability. With a deficiency of chromium, the chances of getting diabetes increase.
  4. A young person may be suspected of chromium deficiency if he or she shows signs of muscle weakness, anxiety and fatigue, along with a slow growth rate. It has also been observed that children who eat large amounts of processed sugar may grow at a slower rate than their peers who are getting enough chromium in their diets.
  5. Chromium deficiency also causes mood swings in affected people. As the regular functioning of the body takes a beating, the mood of the individual also starts fluctuating.
