I’m not positive of all the side effects of poor blood levels or being off diet but here are some that I know of:
lack of balance
lack of energy/tiredness
poor concentration
memory loss
tremors or shakes
speech problems
lower IQ
short attention span

I know there are alot of other symptoms but I can’t think of them right now. Also good luck with going back on your diet chargers! You can do it! And also there are ALOT of new formulas that they came out with, some come already made in juice boxes so I’m sure you will beable to find one that you like. GOOD LUCK!
