What is this?
Anemia is characterized by the condition in which a low hematocrit-hemoglobin is observed in the body.
Anemias are one of the main topics of hematology, with multidimensional etiology and explanation. Briefly we mention:
a. At younger ages, anemias are mainly observed by:
b. In older ages, anemia can be caused by:
The most common tests used independently or in combination in the investigation of anemias are mentioned.
The selection of analyzes is done gradually and with a medical evaluation, while more specialized blood analyzes or tests that are not mentioned on the page may be required.
Direct measurement of hematocrit (HCT) and hemoglobin (HGB) is the first diagnosis of anemia
The following additional parameters of the general blood test, give us additional information about the etiology - type of anemia
It is used to detect long-term inflammatory disease or severe disease of the marrow or other central diseases that may have caused the anemia.
They show the rate of erythrocyte turnover giving information about the productivity of the marrow.
With the tests, the sufficiency of Ferrum in the body is assessed with conclusions of possible loss or malabsorption. The simple measurement of Ferrum is not sufficient, since iron shows particularly large fluctuations from day to day, and is strongly influenced by possible inflammations with 'falsely' low values. The need for measurement and stores is imperative as administering Ferrum to people with 'falsely low' iron results, can be particularly burdensome.
They provide information on the adequate transport of iron within the body, and its ability to absorb it, especially in cases where ferrum administration is needed.
Auxiliary test for detection:
- inflammation that can give 'false' values in Ferrum, ferritin, and transferrin
– serious diseases that can cause anemia
They are the most necessary hematopoietic vitamins. We often find them at low levels in people with a poor or malnourished diet and in people who have difficulty absorbing them due to stomach disorders – malabsorption, old age, or medication use.
Analyzes that check the normal way of renewal - regeneration of the blood, and exclude situations of hemolysis - the destruction of the blood within the body.
They are the antibodies to detect celiac disease, a condition characterized by intolerance to gluten and obstruction of the absorption of Ferrum, vitamin B12, and folic acid. These tests are particularly recommended in cases of unexplained long-term inability to maintain ferritin and vitamin B12 levels after treatment.
It is recommended in established acute phase iron deficiency and in people suspected of blood loss from the gastrointestinal system.
INFORMATION FOR LABORATORY CHECK
A simple blood test is required for laboratory testing.
Blood sampling can be done at any time of the day (no preparation or diet is required).
Blood sampling can be done at any time of the day (the laboratory's working hours are 7.30 am – 7.30 pm).
TIME OF DELIVERY OF THE RESULTS
The results of the blood and stool tests are given on the same day.
Celiac autoantibody results are available within 3 business days.
The blood and stool tests of the blood test are prescribed at the EOPYY, with the participation of the examinee as defined by the referral (15%, unless otherwise stated)
The offer for this period:
With the measurement of the Extended check of trace elements - vitamins - inflammation, is given a free TIBC measurement (worth 20 euros)
