About Iron Deficiency and Ferritin

Detect signs of iron deficiency with our high-quality ferritin test. Iron deficiency is common, especially in menstruating women and children, and can have serious health effects. Our test measures the ferritin level (S-Ferritin) in the blood and provides a clear picture of your iron values. If the result is below the threshold of 30 ng/ml, it may indicate potential iron deficiency and could be related to symptoms such as pallor, fatigue, headaches, and shortness of breath during exercise. Sufficient iron stores are crucial for the body to produce enough hemoglobin and red blood cells, which oxygenate your tissues and provide you with energy. Take care of your health and order our ferritin test today to ensure you have a balanced iron level and optimal well-being.

Instructions

Prepare easily for the test by storing it at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Just make sure to use it before the expiration date and keep it in the sealed bag until it's time to use it.

To perform the test, wash your hands thoroughly and let the test cassette reach room temperature. Remove the cap from the lancet and clean the fingertip with the provided alcohol swab. Press the lancet against the finger to obtain a blood sample, and then massage the finger to produce a blood drop.

Use the pipette to collect the blood and place it into the test cassette. Add a drop of buffer solution and wait for the colored lines to appear. After 5 minutes, you can read the result. Remember not to read the result after 10 minutes.

Who should get an Iron Deficiency test?

Testing ferritin levels is beneficial for those with symptoms of iron deficiency or overload, such as fatigue, weakness, or joint pain. It’s crucial for people with anemia or chronic diseases that affect iron metabolism. Pregnant women, frequent blood donors, and individuals with gastrointestinal disorders that affect nutrient absorption also benefit from ferritin testing to ensure optimal iron levels.

What will the result tell me?

Results will indicate if your levels are low or within the sufficient range. If you desire your exact value, you should opt for our laboratory test for iron/ferritin instead.

What happens if I fail to take the sample?

If you read the instructions carefully before you take the test and it should go well. Should something go wrong, you are welcome to contact us and we will help you.

What Is the Difference Between Iron and Ferritin?

Iron is a mineral crucial for making hemoglobin, which carries oxygen in the blood. Ferritin, on the other hand, is a protein that stores and releases iron as needed. While iron levels fluctuate with dietary intake and loss, ferritin provides a more accurate picture of the body’s iron reserves over time, making it a key marker in assessing iron status.
