Anemia is the most common nutritional deficiency in the United States. It is a condition that develops when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells or hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is a main part of red blood cells and binds oxygen. If you have too few or abnormal red blood cells, or your hemoglobin is abnormal or low, the cells in your body will not get enough oxygen. Symptoms of anemia occur because organs aren't getting what they need to function properly.
Because there are many types and causes of anemia, we have created this panel to look at the most frequent causes, such as iron deficiency, B12 deficiency, and the bone marrow’s ability to produce red blood cells. Symptoms of anemia symptoms include fatigue, pale skin, weakness, shortness of breath, headache, dizziness, and cold hands and feet. Individuals who should consider testing include, women of childbearing age, young children, people with chronic diseases, older adults, as well as vegetarians and vegans.
The Anemia Panel Includes:
CBC (Complete Blood Count)
A CBC gives important information about the kinds and numbers of cells in the blood, especially red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. This panel looks for many illnesses, including anemia, infections, and leukemia, in your blood.
CMP (Comprehensive Metabolic Panel)
CMP is a blood test that measures your sugar (glucose) level, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function. This panel includes ALT/(SPGT), alkaline phosphatase, AST/SGOT, bilirubin total, bun, calcium, carbon dioxide total, chloride, creatinine, globulin, glucose, potassium, protein total, sodium. AG ratio, bun/creatinine ratio.
Iron & TIBC
Iron is an important mineral that your body needs to stay healthy. Your body uses iron to make hemoglobin, the protein in your red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body. The total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) test looks at how well the iron moves through your body.
Ferritin is a protein found inside cells that stores iron so your body can use it later. A ferritin test indirectly measures the amount of iron in your blood.
Vitamin B12 & Folate
Measuring vitamin B12 & folate levels can help diagnose the cause of macrocytic anemia. Vitamin B12 is necessary for the formation of normal red blood cells, nerve function, and tissue and cellular repair.
A Hemoglobin A1C test provides a measurement of a person’s average blood glucose levels over the past 2-3 months by determining the percentage of their hemoglobin which is glycated. This test includes a calculation for estimated average glucose (eAG). EAG is a measurement which indicates a person’s average daily blood sugar level.
A reticulocyte count is a blood test that measures how fast red blood cells are made by the bone marrow and released into the blood. Reticulocytes are in the blood for about 2 days before developing into mature red blood cells.
