Iron is an essential mineral that's key to your health. You need it to make your red blood cells and for a strong immune system. But iron deficiency is really common.

Some of us are at particularly high risk of iron deficiency:

  • Bullet Icon
    People on plant-based diets: one of the main sources of iron is meat. If you eat little or no meat you're at high risk of deficiency.
  • Bullet Icon
    Women before the menopause: losing iron with your monthly cycle can often lead to iron deficiency - particularly if periods are heavy.

With iron deficiency you can have no symptoms at all or feel tired and run-down and be more prone to infections.

Our Quick and Easy Iron Deficiency Test is a simple finger-prick blood test to measure the levels of the biomarker ferritin. Low ferritin is caused by iron deficiency.
