Anaemia Profile Blood Test

An Anaemia profile blood test is a blood test that diagnoses anaemia and its likely causes, including iron deficiency anaemia, vitamin B12 deficiency anaemia, folic acid deficiency anaemia, and iron deficiency anaemia.

What is anaemia?

Anaemia is a category of blood disorders that cause a decrease in red blood cells or the amount of haemoglobin in the blood. Haemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that transports oxygen from your lungs to other body parts. Without sufficient oxygen, the body cannot function properly.

Different types of anaemia affect people, each with unique causes and characteristics. The common types of anaemia are:

  • Vitamin-deficiency anaemia
  • Iron-deficiency anaemia
  • Haemolytic anaemia

Understanding the types of anaemia is important to determine the most effective treatment.

  • Shortness of breath
  • Pale skin
  • Noticeable heartbeats (heart palpitations)
  • Lack of energy or tiredness

Less common symptoms

  • Feeling itchy
  • Headaches
  • Food tasting strange
  • A sore tongue
  • Hearing ringing, hissing, or buzzing noises inside your head (tinnitus)
  • Hair loss – increased hair loss when washing or brushing your hair
  • Restless legs syndrome
  • Spoon-shaped nails
  • Painful open sores (ulcers) in the corners of the mouth
  • Difficulty swallowing (dysphagia)
  • Wanting to eat non-food items like ice or paper
