Iron Test

Iron test is a laboratory test that measures the amount of iron in the blood. It is typically used to diagnose and monitor iron-deficiency anemia and other conditions related to iron metabolism.
Pre-test preparation:
The patient should fast for at least 8 hours prior to the test.
Testing method:
A blood sample is typically drawn from a vein in the arm.
The sample is then sent to a laboratory for analysis.
Common symptoms for prescribing this test:

Pale skin
Shortness of breath

Heart palpitations

Iron-deficiency anemia is diagnosed when the test results show low levels of iron in the blood.
Other conditions, such as hemochromatosis, may be diagnosed based on the test results and other clinical information.
Reference range:
The normal reference range for iron levels in the blood is typically between 60 and 170 micrograms per deciliter (mcg/dL) for adult men and between 50 and 170 mcg/dL for adult women.
Normal values:
Iron level of 60 to 170 mcg/dL is considered normal
Iron level below 60 mcg/dL is considered low and may indicate iron-deficiency anemia.
It is important to consult with a doctor or healthcare professional for any questions or concerns regarding the this test or any other medical test
