Information

What is an Iron Test?
An iron test is a blood test that confirms the level iron in the blood to see how well iron is metabolized in the body. Iron is a mineral needed for hemoglobin which is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. In addition, iron is needed for energy, as well as for good muscle and organ function.

The Iron Test is part of our Essential Plus Screening Panel.

Testing

Why should I get tested?
If you are having symptoms such as chronic fatigue, weakness, pale skin, headaches, dizziness, lightheadedness, cold hands and feet, irritability, brittle nails, poor appetite, or a compulsion to eat things other than food, you might want to consider the Iron Test for deficiency.

If your symptoms include joint pain, especially in the hands, chronic fatigue, loss of sex drive, trouble getting or maintaining an erection (Erectile Dysfunction or ED), lack of menstruation, or abdominal pain you many want to consider the Iron Test to assess if your iron levels are too high.

You might also want to consider the Iron Test if you want to monitor your nutritional status, or to check if iron supplementation is working.

How should I prepare for the test?
Avoid iron supplements for 12 hours prior to getting an Iron Test.

Results

What could my screening results mean?
The values for iron are usually checked to see if a low amount of iron in the body may be caused by iron deficiency anemia, as well as to see whether a high amount of iron is due to hemochromatosis.

Other conditions that may be caused by abnormal iron levels include hemolytic anemia, thalassemia, cirrhosis of the liver, lead poisoning, rheumatoid arthritis, overuse of iron supplements, bleeding, kidney failure, or severe infection.

If your Iron Test indicates abnormalities, you should consult your healthcare provider for further analysis. Also tell your healthcare provider if you are taking any medications or supplements as they may affect your test results.
