How does the SELFCheck Iron Level Test work?

Ferritin is a protein and is the main way in which iron is stored in your cells. Only one line visible in your test result (next to the C mark) means that the ferritin concentration in your blood is lower than 20ng/mL and you could have an iron deficiency.

When can this test be performed?

The test can be used at any time of the day but must not be performed if you are ill, suffering from acute inflammation or a spleen or liver injury.

Can the result be incorrect?

Your result will be accurate provided you have interpreted the instructions correctly. Nevertheless, your result may be incorrect if your test gets wet before performing the test or insufficient blood or diluent is added to the sample well. The plastic pipette provided is designed to ensure that the correct amount of blood is used.

If I read the result after 15 minutes, will the result be reliable?

No. The result should be read within 10 minutes after adding the diluent. The result is reliable for up to 15 minutes.

What should I do if the result shows that I could be iron deficient?

If your test says that you could be iron deficient, then it means that the ferritin level in your blood is lower than normal (approx. 20ng/mL). You should speak to your doctor and mention the test results. Your doctor will decide whether any additional investigation should be performed.

What should I do if the result is normal?

If the result is normal, it means that the ferritin level is higher than 20ng/mL. However, you should always speak to your doctor if you are concerned about your symptoms.
