Why to test for Iron Profile at Symbion VIP Diagnostics, Ahmedabad.

Iron tests are groups of clinical chemistry laboratory blood tests that are used to evaluate body iron stores or the iron level in blood serum.

Other terms used for the same tests are iron panel, iron profile, iron indices or iron status.

Iron status may be evaluated by ordering one or more tests to determine the amount of circulating iron in the blood, the capacity of the blood to transport iron, and the amount of stored iron in tissues. Testing may also help differentiate various causes of anemia and may include:

  • Serum Iron Level
  • Serum Iron Binding Capasity (TIBC)
  • Transferrin Saturation.

Who should get tested for Iron Lab Test Profile ?

One or more iron tests may be ordered when results from a routine CBC test are abnormal, such as a low hematocrit or hemoglobin, or when a doctor suspects that a person has iron deficiency due to the presence of signs and symptoms such as:

  • chronic fatigue/tiredness
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness
  • Headaches
  • Pale skin (pallor)

Ferritin, transferrin saturation, and a TIBC or UIBC may be ordered when a doctor suspects that a person may have a chronic iron overload (Hemochromatosis). HFE genetic testing may be ordered to help confirm a diagnosis of hereditary hemochromatosis and sometimes when a person has a family history of hemochromatosis.

An iron test and sometimes TIBC and ferritin tests may be ordered when a person has symptoms that the doctor suspects are due to iron overload or poisoning. These may include:

  • Joint pain
  • Fatigue, weakness
  • Lack of energy
  • Abdominal pain
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Heart problems

When a child is suspected to have excessively ingested iron tablets, a serum iron test is ordered to detect and help assess the severity of the poisoning.
