Iron is essential towards helping your body to function at it’s best, as it helps to transport oxygen around the body, keeping you alive.

Low iron levels can be detrimental to your health and can lead to fatigue, breathlessness, decreased immunity, and anaemia. Additional symptoms may include difficulty concentrating, hair loss, headaches, and dizziness.

Health Check Procedure

Your Pharmacist will draw a blood sample from your fingertip, and place the sample on the test strip. You will be directed to apply gentle pressure, with gauze or cotton, to the area afterwards.

Advise your Pharmacist if you’re feeling dizzy or faint (this is quite common after blood being drawn). It is also normal for a small amount of bleeding or bruising to be present after a blood sample is taken. The process should take around 1 minute.

Check your total iron levels at your local Blooms The Chemist.
