Iron and TIBC Panel Blood Test

$53.00$59.00

* This is not a home test kit. You will need to visit a local lab for testing.

Description

Use:

This panel measures the amount of iron in your blood and looks at how well the iron moves through your body. Iron is an important mineral your body uses to make hemoglobin, the protein in your red blood cells responsible for carrying oxygen throughout your body. It is also needed for proper muscle and organ function. About 3/4 of the body’s iron is bound to hemoglobin in red blood cells, while the rest is either bound to other proteins (transferrin in blood or ferritin in bone marrow) or stored in other body tissues.

Some symptoms associated with iron deficiency include fatigue, weakness, frequent infections, feeling cold all the time, tongue swelling. Some symptoms associated with iron overload are joint pain and abdominal pain.

Recommended For:

Those who want to check their iron levels; Those who experience symptoms associated with iron deficiency or overload.

Special Notes:

Fasting for 12 hours prior to iron testing is required. Also, women who are having their menstrual period may have decreased iron so it is recommended to test before or after your period.
