Iron & Ferritin Blood Test – £57
Iron tests are most often used to check whether your iron levels are too low (an indication of anemia) or too high, which could be a sign of hemochomatosis, a condition that causes your body to absorb too much iron from the food you eat. This can lead to issues such as liver disease, heart problems and potential diabetes.
A Ferritin test helps your doctor determine how much iron your body stores. A test that reveals low levels of ferritin could indicate that your body’s iron levels are low and you have an iron deficiency.
It may be a good idea to check your Iron and Ferritin levels if you are a vegetarian or vegan as you may need more iron rich sources in your diet.
