What does the test include?

Iron is an important element that we use to create new red blood cells, which distribute oxygen around the body, and build up the immune system. Most of our iron resides inside a protein called haemoglobin. Additionally, some of our iron is stored inside a protein called ferritin, which has control over how much is released into our system.

The iron status test checks how well your body can absorb and store iron, and can also diagnose iron deficiency, anaemia, and overload (known as Haemochromatosis).

Health markers
Iron is a mineral that is important in making red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. Lower levels of iron than usual can lead to iron deficiency anaemia.
A TIBC test measures the ability of the blood to attach itself to iron and transport it around the body. A high TIBC indicates an iron deficiency and a low TIBC indicates anaemia due to red blood cells being destroyed too quickly.
Ferritin is a blood protein that contains iron. A ferritin test indicates how much iron is stored in the body. Low ferritin levels indicate iron deficiency.
A transferrin saturation test tells us how much iron in the blood is bound to transferrin. Transferrin is a protein produced by the liver and it regulates the absorption of iron into the blood. Low transferrin saturation indicates iron deficiency.

This test checks your vitamin D and active B12 levels to see if they are healthy. Vitamin D and Vitamin B12 are essential nutrients which regulate your mood and energise your body. Therefore, vitamin D and B12 deficiencies are a cause of exhaustion and fatigue that should be identified or ruled out.

Health markers
Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that helps the body function properly. Sufficient levels of this Vitamin are necessary for maintaining healthy teeth, bones, and immune systems. Vitamin D can also help with heart and lung health, and with combating depression symptoms. Our bodies can get some of this nutrient from food, but sunlight is the main source.
Active B12 is the form of Vitamin B12 that can be used by the body. Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that supports neurological function, DNA production and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system. It also helps to energise you, regulate your mood and generate red blood cells which carry oxygen around the body. In pregnancy, Vitamin B12 contributes to foetal development and maturation of the baby�s nervous system.

Thyroxine is a hormone responsible for many vital functions including regulating metabolism, mood, and body temperature. High T4 levels indicate hyperthyroidism, and low T4 levels indicate hypothyroidism.

Health markers
TSH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland and has the role of regulating the production of hormones by the thyroid gland. High TSH levels indicate hypothyroidism, and low TSH levels indicate hyperthyroidism.
Thyroxine is a hormone responsible for many vital functions including regulating metabolism, mood, and body temperature. High T4 levels indicate hyperthyroidism, and low T4 levels indicate hypothyroidism.
