  • fatigue, or a feeling of being “run down” and tired
  • blurred vision
  • dry, itchy skin
  • tingling or burning pain in the feet, legs, hands, or other body parts
  • high blood pressure
  • mood swings or depression
  • frequent infections, such as urinary tract infections, yeast infections, and skin infections
