What we test

Haematinics

A haematinic is a nutrient required for the formation of blood cells. The main haematinics are iron, B12, and folate. Deficiency in haematinics can lead to anaemia.

This blood test measures:

Holotranscobalamin represents only 10-30% of the Vitamin B12 circulating in the blood but is the ONLY form of Vitamin B12 that is taken up and used by cells of the body, hence it’s other name - ACTIVE Vitamin B12.

Found naturally in food, such as green leafy vegetables. Folate (vitamin B9) plays a role in DNA creation and is important for the production of red blood cells.

The ferritin concentration within the blood stream reflects the amount of iron stored in your body and is reduced in anaemia.
