Description

Anaemia is a common and potentially dangerous condition of the blood brought about when the body does not produce enough red blood cells. You should do this test if you think you may be anaemic. This tests checks the levels of Ferritin (FER) in blood in order to verify the iron stores.

WHY SHOULD I PERFORM THE TEST?
The Ferritin level in blood gives is useful in detecting iron store depletion as the concentration drops to very low values. As iron deficiency develops, iron stores are depleted before anaemia becomes apparent. The FER screening should be performed by all the pregnant women and regularly by all anaemic people with a healthy lifestyle.

Checking the normality of the FER value is a very good tool for verifying the iron deficiency anaemia and eventually taking the required preventive actions.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The test is based on an immunochromatographic reaction correlated to the reference laboratory test. The cut-off is calibrated at 20 ng/mL according to the international standard.

    Test kit arrived within 24 hours of ordering. Instructions for the test were easy to follow and clear. It was a bit tricky drawing enough blood for the test using the lancets that come with the test kit, but I got there in the end. Test gave me a positive result, verifying what I had expected. Now going to book an appointment with my GP to follow up.
