How it works

Iron deficiency test

AED 200.00

Iron is a substance that is normally absorbed by the body when we eat. The iron circulates in the body, but we also have iron stored in organs and bones. Iron deficiency is most common among younger women, but the true prevalence in the Swedish population is unclear and other groups in the population also have iron deficiency. Common symptoms of iron deficiency can be fatigue, dizziness and palpitations. The iron deficiency test gives you an overview of your iron value.

What is tested in this package

What are Leukocytes (LPK)
Leukocytes (LPK) is a test taken to check the number of white blood cells in the blood. The white blood cells are important for the body’s immune system and have the task of defending us against attacks from microorganisms such as bacteria or viruses.
What is Hemoglobin Mass (MCH)
MCH stands for “Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin” and is a measure of how much hemoglobin is inside the red blood cells. The red blood cells have the task of binding oxygen molecules from the inhaled air in the lungs and transporting the oxygen to all parts of the body. A majority of this oxygen is bound to the hemoglobin molecules found inside the red blood cells.
What is Hemoglobin (Hb)
Hemoglobin (Hb) is also usually called the blood value. Hemoglobin is found inside the red blood cells (erythrocytes) and is the protein that binds oxygen molecules from the inhaled air in the lungs so that the red blood cells can then transport the oxygen to all parts of the body. Hemoglobin also contributes to the red blood cells maintaining their correct shape so that they can flow as well as possible through the blood vessels.
What is Erythrocytes (EPK)
Erythrocytes (EPK) measure the number of red blood cells per liter of blood and are thus a measure of the concentration of the red blood cells in the blood. The red blood cells have the task of binding oxygen molecules from the inhaled air in the lungs and transporting the oxygen out to all parts of the body, as well as returning carbon dioxide back to the lungs for exhalation.
What is Hematocrit (EVF)
Erythrocyte volume fraction (EVF), also called hematocrit, indicates how much of the blood volume is made up of red blood cells. The red blood cells have the task of binding oxygen molecules from the inhaled air in the lungs and transporting the oxygen out to all parts of the body, as well as returning carbon dioxide back to the lungs for exhalation.
What are Platelets (TPK)
Thrombocytes (TPK) are also called platelets. The platelets are important for blood coagulation (clotting ability), which has the task of stopping bleeding in the event of, for example, a wound by clumping together and forming a plug over the wound. They are also important for other parts of the body’s coagulation system.
What is Mean Cellular Volume (MCV)
MCV is an abbreviation for “Mean Corpuscular Volume” and is a measure of the size of the red blood cells. The red blood cells have the task of binding oxygen molecules from the inhaled air in the lungs and transporting the oxygen to all parts of the body. A majority of this oxygen is bound to the hemoglobin molecules found inside the red blood cells.
What is Ferritin
Ferritin is a protein that binds and stores iron in the body, and is analyzed to get an idea of ​​how large the body’s iron stores are. Iron is a mineral that the body needs as it is an important component of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein in our red blood cells, i.e. the cells in the blood that transport oxygen to our tissues and carbon dioxide from the tissues to the lungs where they can be eliminated via the exhaled air.
What is Iron
Iron is a mineral that the body needs as it is an important component of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein in our red blood cells, i.e. the cells in the blood that transport oxygen to our tissues and the waste product carbon dioxide from the tissues to the lungs where they can be eliminated via the exhaled air. A low iron value can lead to blood deficiency (anemia) and reduced oxygen transport capacity. This condition is called iron deficiency anemia. Iron is also needed for our muscles and internal organs to function normally. The body gets iron through the food we eat.
