Folic acid deficiency results in anaemia. Deficiency in folic acid triggers the body to produce large abnormally-sized red blood cells. These do not function effectively and therefore cause poor oxygen supply to the body. Folic acid deficiency also results in tiredness, muscle weakness, reduced energy, poor memory and judgment, feeling of pins and needles, especially in the hands and feet, and depression. Treatment is taking folic acid supplements and eating foods rich in folic acid.
