Iron Studies/Anemia Screening
Anaemia is a deficiency in the number or quality of red blood cells. The red blood cells carry oxygen around the body, using a protein called haemoglobin. Symptoms of anaemia can include feeling tired or weak, a lack of energy, pale skin or breathlessness. People at a higher risk of anaemia include menstruating, pregnant and breastfeeding women, vegetarians or fad dieters and athletes.
We are able to perform a quick screening for anaemia with just a drop of blood from your fingertip. Using a laboratory grade testing device, we can instantly measure your Haemoglobin (Hb) level. If your results fall outside of the normal range, we will provide advice on dietary changes and supplements and refer you for further testing if necessary.
