ANEMIA BUNDLE

Tests in this bundle help assess proper functioning of the organism. Anaemia can be of genetic, environmental or nutritional origin. A common feature is low red blood cell and haemoglobin count.

ANEMIA BUNDLE
  • MorphologyTest which helps assess the general health state of the patient based on the number and appearance of different type of cells – i.e. red, white and plates. One of the first symptoms of many diseases are changes in blood morphology – this is why this test can be a big step towards diagnosing anaemia, viral infections, bacterial infections, immunological inefficiencies, coagulation disorders and others.
  • ferritinThis test enables assessment of iron economy of the organism. High results can indicate inflammation, low results can indicate iron deficiency
  • Ireon (Fe)Among the trace elements iron occurs in the highest concentration. Low level of iron can be caused by loss of blood, problems with absorption or low iron supply in the diet.
  • Folic acidStimulates haematopoietic processes and has a huge impact on regular growth of cells and their functioning. It protects the organism from cancer development. Low level of folic acid in pregnant women can result in developmental complications of the fetus.
  • OBTest that helps assess the general health state and enables re recognition and monitoring of heavy and protracted inflammations
  • TransferrinTest carried out if the iron balance in the organism is disrupted. Very helpful in assessing the functioning of organs (the liver) and nutrition. Transferrin regulates the concentration of iron ions and mediates their transport to tissues.
  • Vitamin B12regulates production of red blood cells. This vitamin occurs mainly in foods of animal origin – because of that people who use a vegetarian or vegan diet risk deficiency. Lack of this vitamin can cause macrocyte anaemia or neurological disorders.

It is worth Knowing

Symptoms of anaemia:

  • weak immunity
  • fainting, short-term loss of consciousness
  • heart arrhythmia
  • weak nails and hair
  • low blood pressure
  • pale skin
  • haemorrhage
  • chest pain
  • trouble breathing

Anaemia is a disease easy to diagnose and treat.  Symptoms, should be taken seriously – even the benign ones. The treatment involves a proper diet. It is worth remembering that treatment of anaemia is not based upon eating exclusively meat. It can be replaced by green vegetables, beets, dried fruit, legumes and egg yolks. In case of serious issues the doctor will advise to take iron orally. Untreated anaemia can lead to such complications as:

  • heightened sensitivity to bacterial, parasitical and fungal infections
  • higher probability of malignant tumours
  • rheumatic problems
