Iron Deficiency Test
Are you deficient in iron?
There are often very little symptoms of an iron deficiency at first. However, if it is left untreated for too long, some people may begin to suffer from anaemia.
Symptoms of anaemia often include:
• Shortness of breath.
• Chest pain.
If left untreated, anaemia can complicate a healthy heart or pair of lungs, and in some extreme cases, can lead to heart failure.
If you're looking to take charge of your health and well-being, purchasing an iron deficiency test is a wise decision. Iron plays a vital role in our bodies, and its deficiency can have noticeable impacts on our skin, hair, and nails.
By identifying any deficiencies through the test, you can gain valuable insights into your iron levels and take appropriate steps to address them. Iron deficiency can lead to pale and dull skin, brittle and thinning hair, and brittle or spoon-shaped nails.
Investing in an iron deficiency test empowers you to understand the root cause of these concerns and enables you to make informed choices about your nutrition, supplementation, and overall health. Don't underestimate the profound influence iron has on your external appearance – take control of your well-being and consider purchasing an iron deficiency test today.

How it works?
Iron is an essential trace element and nutrient that, among other functions, is necessary for the production of healthy red blood cells(RBCs). The body cannot produce iron and must absorb it from the foods we eat or from supplements (1).
In healthy people, most of the iron absorbed by the body is incorporated into the haemoglobin of red blood cells.
When the level of iron is insufficient to meet the body’s needs, the level of iron in the blood drops, iron stores are depleted, and ferritin levels decrease (2).
Insufficient levels of circulating and stored iron may eventually lead to iron deficiency anaemia (decreased haemoglobin). A deficiency is registered when the ferritin concentration in blood is lower than 30ng/ml.
