Anaemia Test - £55.00
Anaemia can occur when the body has insufficient red blood cells or lack of haemoglobin contained within red blood cells. Pernicious Anaemia causes the heart to work harder to get enough oxygen to the body's organs and tissues. This stress on the heart can cause heart murmurs, fast or irregular heartbeats, an enlarged heart, or even heart failure. If left undiagnosed and untreated, PA can also damage the nervous system and has also been associated with cancer of the stomach. Fatigue, tiredness, lethargy, hypotension, tachycardia, shortness of breath, feeling faint, cognitive impairment, diarrhoea, pins and needles, jaundice, headaches, palpitations, altered taste, being off your food, tinnitus, swollen tongue, personality or memory changes, looking pale are the common symptoms of anaemia.
The test requires just a pin-prick blood sample. Results are available within 10 working days
