An iron blood test, also known as a serum iron test, measures the level of iron in the blood. This test helps identify iron deficiency or excess, which can provide valuable insights into a patient's overall health and guide appropriate treatment options. Iron blood tests are commonly ordered by doctors, and they play a significant role in managing conditions such as anemia, chronic diseases, or monitoring iron supplementation.
Iron deficiency is a common nutritional deficiency worldwide, and it can lead to various health issues if left untreated. Symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, dizziness, pale skin, and shortness of breath may indicate low iron levels. On the other hand, iron overload can result from conditions such as hereditary hemochromatosis or excessive iron supplementation, potentially causing organ damage and other complications. Identifying these imbalances early on is crucial for maintaining optimal health.
