What we test

Iron Studies

This simple iron test measures how much iron you have in your blood, as well as the amount of iron you have stored in your body. This iron test can be used to diagnose anaemia or monitor an existing iron deficiency. This iron test can also be used to investigate iron overload syndrome (haemochromatosis) which is an inherited condition where your body cannot remove excess iron.

This iron test measures:

An essential trace element is necessary for forming healthy red blood cells and for some enzymes.

A protein that binds iron and transports it around the body (also known as TIBC). High levels indicate iron deficiency.

Low levels typically indicate iron deficiency, and high levels can indicate iron overload.

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