Service Description

Feeling constantly tired or drained? Is fatigue becoming the norm? Our comprehensive Tiredness & Fatigue blood test will check a range of possible causes of fatigue to help identify the reasons for your tiredness and enable you to get the treatment you need. Some of the main causes of ongoing fatigue can include diabetes, vitamin deficiency, anaemia and thyroid disorders. This test includes: Thyroid testing - Your thyroid is a gland in your neck which produces hormones to manage and maintain your metabolism. If your thyroid under-produces hormones you can experience symptoms such as tiredness and lethargy, dry or brittle hair, dry or sensitive skin and weight gain. An overactive thyroid can lead to weight loss or feelings of anxiety. Vitamin D Testing - Vitamin D is vital for bone strength, as well as protection against chronic illnesses and muscle function. We cannot make it ourselves and need to obtain it from natural sunlight or supplements. It can also be obtained from a small number of foods, such as oily fish, red meat, egg yolks and fortified food such as cereals. Iron - We check for 5 Iron markers: -Ferritin -Iron -Total Iron Binding Concentration -Transferrin -Unsaturated Iron Binding Concentration Iron is used in the body to create new blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. Low levels of iron can lead to fatigue and reduced energy levels, along with pale skin, weak hair and nails and chest pain or heart flutters. Too much iron can lead to iron-overload, or hemochromatosis, which can also lead to fatigue and chest pains, as well as joint pain, stomach pain and unexplained weight loss. We will check your iron levels and your body’s ability to efficiently transport iron via your blood. Blood Cells - We check for 15 Blood Cells markers: -Basophils -Eosinophils -Haematocrit -Haemoglobin -Lymphocytes -MCHC -Mean Cell Haemoglobin -Mean Cell Volume -Monocytes -MPV -Neutrophils -Platelets -Red Blood Cells Red Cell Distribution -White Blood Cells Red blood cells are responsible for transporting oxygen around your body and are continuously being created within your bone marrow to replace cells lost through bleeding or cell aging. Some conditions within the body can lead to excess cells being created, or too few. Too many red blood cells can lead to problems such as blurry or impaired vision, headaches and migraines or an enlarged spleen. Too few, and you could experience anaemia, fatigue, dizziness and heart palpitations.
