Description

What is an At Home Rapid Anemia Test used for?

The Rapid Anemia Test helps to determine whether or not you may have anemia. Anemia most commonly occurs when a person’s body has low levels of iron. Iron is needed to make hemoglobin (protein in red blood cells that carry oxygen). This condition can be caused in multiple ways, including, not eating enough iron-rich foods, if your body cannot properly absorb the iron, if you lose iron through blood loss.Mild anemia isn’t usually noticeable. When it becomes more severe, you may have these symptoms: Weakness or feeling tired more often than usual

  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Palpitations (fast heartbeat)
  • Chest pain
  • Feet and hands feel cold
  • Hair loss
  • Cracked or brittle nails
  • Tongue is sore and swollen

What do I need to do to prepare for the home test?

You don’t need any special preparations for this at home screening test.

What do the results mean?

The results are based on the various intensities of the color results, and have associated values.

Low levels may be a sign of:

  • Iron deficiency
  • Thalassemia
  • Kidney disease
  • Cancer and other diseases
  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency
  • Sickle Cell Anemia
  • Folate Deficiency
  • Alcoholism
  • Pregnancy

High levels may be a sign of:

  • Lung or Heart disease
  • Polycythemia vera – a disorder in which your body makes too many red blood cells. It can cause headaches, fatigue, and shortness of breath.
    With abnormal levels, it does not necessarily indicate a medical problem needing treatment. Diet, activity level, medications, a woman’s menstrual cycle, and other considerations can affect the results. In addition, you may have higher than normal levels if you live in a high altitude area. Your health care provider can provide more information and follow up on what your results mean.
