Feeling tired is one of the most common reasons people visit their doctor, but sometimes finding out the reasons for your symptoms can be a journey of trial and error. Often, fatigue is caused by anaemia, either from iron deficiency or low levels of B vitamins, which are essential to creating normal red blood cells.
This Advanced Tiredness and Fatigue Blood Test includes all of the tests for all of these possible reasons plus a full blood count (FBC), where the number, size, and shape of your red blood cells will be looked at. If your red blood cells are abnormal, it affects their ability to transport oxygen around your body, a common cause of fatigue.
This test is for you if:
You feeling tired all the time or experiencing fatigue.
You can be confident that the most common medical causes of low energy are covered, including red blood cells, full iron status and vitamin B12 for anaemia, white blood cells for recent infection, and thyroid and vitamin D for fatigue.
Please remember though, these tests are not a substitute for seeing your doctor. Our doctors will interpret your results based on the information you have provided, but will not diagnose, consult or provide any treatment. You will be advised to see your doctor for any necessary follow-up action.
