Buy SELFCheck Iron Level Test Online in the UK
A quick and accurate 10 minute finger prick blood spot test to determine if you have iron deficient anaemia.
Iron deficiency anaemia is a widespread, major, and global public health issue. Women of childbearing age and pregnant women are especially vulnerable. Headaches, weariness, a lack of energy, palpitations, and hair loss are all common symptoms of iron deficiency.
When compared to a full blood count, measuring certain biomarkers in the blood, such as ferritin, is a simpler and more reliable diagnostic of iron deficiency anaemia. Knowing you have low iron levels can help you seek guidance from your chemist and doctor to lower your risk of long-term problems connected with iron deficiency anaemia.
