What are the symptoms? Iron deficiency (or anemia) develops when your body can't produce enough red blood cells, which are the primary carriers of oxygen to bodily tissue and organs. Anemia is the most common blood condition in the United States, and symptoms typically include fatigue, pale skin, shortness of breath, dizziness and insomnia. While iron deficiency is a common cause of anemia, bear in mind that it can also result from chronic internal bleeding or from certain medical conditions that hinder or destroy red blood cell production.
What does the test include?
Who should be tested? If you are a woman in her childbearing years with one or more of the symptoms noted above, consider taking this blood testing profile. As a general rule, women are more susceptible to anemia than men, especially during pregnancy and from blood loss caused by menstruation. Senior citizens and people with chronic health conditions who exhibit anemia symptoms should also consider testing. And, African-Americans with anemia-like symptoms and related pain in the hands, feet, back or chest should be tested to determine if they have sickle cell anemia, an inherited blood disorder that damages normal red blood cells.
