What causes dizziness during morning?

Hi I have been feeling light headed every morning now soon after I wake up while i am preparing breakfast and it stays fir about hours then I am fine. I am 36 yrs old female, 5 ft 6 weighs about 145 lb. I have anemia/ low iron level. this is a condition that I have had all my life and was doing fine all the past years. Its Mediterranean Anemia since i am originally from the middle east. My doctor had me do a blood test recently and my iron level was lower than my normal. I have been taking iron supplements for about 2 weeks now, also vitamin A , C, D, B50 complex. I take all these supplements in the morning after breakfast except for iron & vitamin C i take them mid day. So any ideas why I feel light headed in the morning?

As per your history, it may be due to hypoglycemia or hypotension.

For further assessment kindly do fasting and postprandial sugar levels are physician consultation.

Do regular blood pressure monitoring.

Further treatment mainly depends upon the underlying condition.

Take balanced diet. Keep your self hydrated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
