Anaemia is a condition where your blood doesn’t carry enough oxygen to the places your body needs it. Anaemia may sound serious, but it’s very common and is often the root cause of symptoms like:
A 'full blood count' checks your haemoglobin level along with the other core cell counts and measurements in your blood.
Iron deficiency is one of the commonest causes of anaemia. Women before the menopause and people on plant-based diets are at particularly high risk of iron deficiency.
Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common cause of anaemia, particularly in people on a plant-based diet

This blood test will check for anaemia (low haemoglobin level in the blood) and also screen for the common causes of anaemia - iron or vitamin B12 deficiency. This means you'll get certainty over whether or not you have anaemia and what you might be able to change in your diet, lifestyle or supplements to sort it out.
We do not recommend using this test panel if you:
Your results will be reviewed by one of our doctors. They will write a report explaining what your results mean for you. They will also tell you if there are any specific actions you should take, like seeing a healthcare professional, considering further tests or making changes to your lifestyle.
