The Doctorcall Iron Deficiency Home Testing kit - also known as the Iron Status (Iron, TIBC, Ferritin) test - is an important part of health screening.
In the young, insufficient iron in the diet can lead to exercise intolerance and exhaustion whereas in the elderly it may also lead to heart failure. A drop in iron status can be an important indicator of unseen blood loss caused by serious bowel conditions.
At the other end of the spectrum, iron overload caused by metabolic malfunction can damage vital organs and is easily treated if diagnosed.
No invasive sampling techniques are necessary. We offer a completely confidential service and the test can be performed in the privacy of your home. Everything you need to collect a sample is included:
Sample required: Tiny blood sample – This is obtained from a finger prick with the easy to use lancet provided.
Using the easy to follow guide provided in the box, complete the form and take the sample as instructed, pop it all into the postage-paid envelope and place it into your nearest post box. Your results will be with you within 7 days.
