Description

Iron deficiency is common and generally affects more women and children than men. Iron is a mineral that the body takes up through food, which is needed to form hemoglobin. At low levels of iron, it becomes more difficult to produce hemoglobin (HB), which captures and transports oxygen in the body. Symptoms of iron deficiency are characterized by fatigue, dizziness, heart palpitations, headaches or that you become short of breath.

Through the iron deficiency test, you get an insight into your iron values ​​and at the same time your blood status. The test can give you an indication of why you experience fatigue or be seen as an opportunity to optimize your iron intake in order to get even more energy.

This is how it works: The test is a blood test that is carried out at the selected sampling unit.

Sample response: You normally have a response within 6 working days after taking the sample. The test answer is sent digitally to your e-mail. Together with the test results, you will receive a report in Swedish about your iron levels and blood status, along with a comment from the Test Reception's doctor. In case of major deviations from the reference value, the doctor will call you.

To think about: Before taking the sample, you should avoid eating (10 hours), also abstain from alcohol the day before taking the sample. It is important to completely avoid anti-inflammatory drugs, pain or fever reducers or a recently completed antibiotic treatment before sampling.

Remember: Bring valid identification with you when taking the sample.

Information

How do you know if you have an iron deficiency?

Fatigue, palpitations, concentration difficulties, headaches or dizziness are common symptoms of iron deficiency. Iron is a mineral and important building block in the body's cells, and is used in the construction of hemoglobin and myoglobin whose purpose is to help the body with oxygen transport. In case of iron deficiency, the body has difficulty with oxygenation, which can result in the symptoms described above.

Reason for iron deficiency?

A common reason for iron deficiency is loss of blood, for example in connection with menstruation or another disease that can cause bleeding. Another reason could be that your body can no longer absorb enough iron from the diet or that your diet does not contain high enough concentrations of iron. The body contains approximately 50 mg of iron per kilogram of body weight and the daily recommended intake of iron amounts to approximately 15 mg/day for menstruating women and 9 mg/day for men.

Why should I do an iron deficiency test?

The test gives you insight into your iron value and detects any iron deficiency that may be the cause of fatigue. Furthermore, the body also has a buffer of iron that is stored in liver cells and macrophages bound to ferritin, which is why it is also important to measure ferritin in order to identify an exhausted iron store. The test also includes all blood status markers and Transferrin, which can be used to detect mild functional iron deficiency.
