Product Description

The at-home Iron Deficiency test helps you get a fast indication of your Ferritin levels and if you may be anaemic.

This test is ideal for detecting Iron deficiency which can be associated with many symptoms such as dizziness, fatigue, lack of energy, feeling cold, poor nails or numbness.

Monitoring your Iron level as a key marker helps to determine if taking supplements would be an important part of your health regime.


This test uses a small sample of blood in a compact testing kit which is mailed directly to you. In the box, there will be full instructions provided on how to complete the sample and testing process in 5 minutes.

The easy-to-use CE-approved testing kit is shipped within 24 business hours.


Monitoring your Iron levels on a regular basis can prevent untreated symptoms from getting worse which include:

  • Fainting
  • Paleness
  • Headaches
  • Shortness of breath during exercise
  • Weakened immune system
  • Faster heartbeat

Items Tested

Ferritin is a blood protein that contains iron. Our home ferritin test helps you understand how much iron your body is storing and if you have iron deficiency.

▶ Ferritin levels less than 30ng/mL indicates and Iron Deficiency or Insufficiency.

▶ The test provides results based on Normal or Abnormal/Deficient basis. Deficient results can then be used to request a secondary test or consult further medical advice.


Ferritin is a large spherical protein consisting of 24 noncovalently linked subunits with a molecular weight of approximately 450 KD. One molecule of ferritin is capable of binding between 4000 and 5000 atoms of iron, making ferritin the major iron storage protein for the body (1). The concentration of ferritin is proportional to the total iron stores in the body, resulting in serum ferritin concentrations becoming a diagnostic tool in the evaluation of iron status.

In most normal adults, serum ferritin concentrations vary with age and sex. There is no sex difference until the onset of puberty, at which time ferritin concentrations rise, particularly in males. There is a significant positive correlation between age and serum ferritin concentrations in females but not in males (1-2).

Patients with iron deficiency anaemia have serum ferritin concentration of approximately one-tenth of normal subjects, while patients with iron overload (hemochromatosis, hemosiderosis) have serum ferritin concentrations much higher than normal. Studies also suggest that serum ferritin provides a sensitive means of detecting iron deficiency at an early stage (2).
