Got a Cough that Won't Quit?

If your cough isn't caused by the usual suspects like smoking, asthma, allergies or a virus, your iron levels may be low. In a recent study, otherwise healthy women between the ages of 35 and 41 who took iron supplements for two months saw their chronic coughs improve - and in some cases disappear. How to tell if you're iron deficient? Ask your doctor for a blood test.
