Biochemistry

Blood iron testing is performed at IntroLab, a private laboratory in Belgrade. This test is crucial for diagnosing anemia and assessing iron overload. The iron level is measured along with other markers of iron metabolism such as hemoglobin, ferritin, transferrin, TIBC, UIBC. This comprehensive approach offers a complete overview of the iron levels in the body, facilitating accurate diagnosis and ongoing monitoring of patients.

About Iron

This vital element plays a significant role in various metabolic processes, including oxygen transport, cellular respiration, and the formation of proteins and enzymes. Obtained through diet, it is transported by transferrin in the blood. Serum testing evaluates the quantity bound to transferrin. Insufficient levels may cause anemia, while excess can result in detrimental accumulation and potential organ damage.

When is Iron analysis necessary?

This test is particularly recommended when a complete blood count shows low levels of hemoglobin, hematocrit, or indications of microcytic, hypochromic anemia. This test is crucial for identifying iron deficiency, possibly before other symptoms manifest.

A doctor might request a serum iron test as part of a broader anemia evaluation when symptoms of anemia or hemochromatosis appear. Anemia symptoms include fatigue, weakness, dizziness, headaches, and pallor of the skin and mucous membranes. If left untreated, these symptoms can escalate, leading to concentration difficulties, irritability, brittle nails, and frequent sores in the mouth.

Why is an excessive amount of iron harmful?

Excessive amounts of this element in the body can be detrimental. Symptoms of overload might manifest as joint pain, weakness, abdominal discomfort, and unexplained weight loss. In such cases, seeking medical advice for further evaluation and treatment is recommended.

Overabundance can cause various health complications and organ damage. Potential issues include pancreatic damage, possibly leading to diabetes, liver issues resulting in cirrhosis, cardiac complications like arrhythmias, and the risk of early menopause in women. Early detection and management of these conditions are key. Our laboratory provides affordable testing, offering an opportunity for early diagnosis without a substantial financial burden.
