Whether you are experiencing anaemia symptoms & need a diagnosis or need to monitor your blood levels, we can help with fast & accurate testing & experienced doctors.

A healthy blood profile is crucial to overall health. Our clinic’s unique full blood screening includes a test that will highlight the different indications of anaemia. Anaemia is a condition affecting the red blood cells, in which normal levels of haemoglobin (which is responsible for transporting oxygen around the body) are disrupted. The condition can be caused by two distinct issues: either there are fewer blood cells than normal, or the individual red blood cells are less than normal levels of haemoglobin.

When should I get tested?

Your doctor may advise you to get a blood test if you are experiencing symptoms of anaemia, or you may wish to come for a test based on your own concerns. The most common symptoms of anaemia include tiredness, lethargy, dizziness, breathlessness, feeling faint, & pale skin or pallor. Other symptoms of anaemia which are less common include headaches, palpitations, altered sense of taste, & tinnitus (hearing ringing in your ears).

What does the test include

For this test, you will need to give a sample of blood.

Results

If your test was recommended by one of our doctors, you will receive a call from them to discuss your results as soon as they are ready. We will also email you a copy, so that you can go over them with your own doctor if preferred. You can also of course book a consultation with one of our own doctors to go over the findings.
