Iron Level Test

£18.00

Your body needs iron to make red blood cells, which carry oxygen all around your body and is important for healthy skin, nails, hair and muscles. You get most of your iron from food, although you can get iron supplements to help keep your iron levels healthy if you don’t get enough in your diet.  It is important to get your iron levels checked to make sure you are getting the right amount.

Iron deficiency anaemia is caused by a lack of iron in the blood. Not having enough iron means your body produces fewer red blood cells, and these red blood cells can’t carry as much oxygen around your body as normal. This is called iron deficiency anaemia and common symptoms can include headaches, tiredness, lack of energy, palpitations, and hair loss.

Measurement of specific biomarkers in the blood, such as ferritin, is a simple and more reliable indicator of iron deficiency anaemia than a full blood count.

The SELFCheck Iron Level Test detects the level of ferritin in your blood within minutes from a finger-prick blood sample. A low concentration of ferritin in your blood can indicate iron deficiency.

The advantage of this self-test is that it can be carried out in privacy, ensuring confidentiality whilst also highlighting the need to take further steps in managing your personal health. Always consult your doctor; professionals must only make medical decisions.

A simple way to check for iron deficiency anaemia in a finger-prick blood drop.
