Importance of the profile:
This test will provide information on a number of the common things that doctors look for in blood tests that may give physical reasons for unexplained levels of tiredness.
Full Blood Count: A full blood count can be used to check your overall health and can detect a wide range of issues such as infection, anaemia and leukaemia. A full blood count will look at your red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
Iron Studies: Iron studies are a set of blood tests used to measure the amount of iron carried in the blood and stored in the body’s tissues. Iron deficiency can be the cause of a wide range of symptoms such as fatigue, chest pains and shortness of breath.
Thyroid: Thyroid disorders are common but often remain undiagnosed. If your thyroid isn’t functioning properly it can cause tiredness, mood problems and weight issues.
Vitamin: Vitamins are a group of substances that our bodies need for normal cell function, growth and development. Vitamin deficiencies can be the cause of a wide range of common symptoms and conditions.
