Frequently Asked Questions
Why test for ferritin when determining iron deficiency?
Ferritin is a blood protein that stores and releases iron within the body. It therefore indirectly provides an indication of iron levels. Iron deficiency can cause several health issues. Low ferritin may also indicate hypothyroidism, vitamin C deficiency or coeliac disease.
Why test for vitamin D deficiency?
Vitamin D helps regulate calcium and phosphate and is important for bone, teeth, and muscle health. If someone is vitamin D deficient, they are at risk of bone deformities or pain. Vitamin D deficiency can also be be linked to cancer, cardio vascular disease, auto immune diseases, diabetes and depression.
Data from UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey indicates that approximately 20% of adults adults may be vitamin D deficient.
Why test for COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2)?
COVID-19 infections are still occurring and some people remain vulnerable to infection or serious illness. Confirming your COVID-19 status will allow you to make informed decisions about when to take actions to protect you and your loved ones.
When should I test?
Iron Test: The test can be used at anytime of the day. It’s advisable to test following the onset of symptoms such as paleness, headaches, faster heartbeat or shortness of breath. Do not use if you following the diagnosis of diseases, acute inflammations, or spleen or liver injury.
Vitamin D Test: The test can be used at anytime of the day or when you experience common vitamin D deficiency symptoms. People in less sunny climates or those who regularly shield from the sun are advised to the test as a screening tool as part of a regular healthcare routine.
Covid-19 Test: The test can be used at any time of the day and performed whether you have COVID-19 symptoms or not.
Iron Test: Results interpretation is slightly different for this test. If you get a test (T) and control (C) line this means the ferritin concentration in the blood is normal. If you only get a (C) line it may suggest ferritin levels are abnormal. The test will not detect high ferritin levels.
Vitamin D Test: When the test (T) line shows a dense colour alongside the control (C) line this means someone is deficient. A mid-coloured T line and control (C) line means insufficient and a lightly colour T line suggests sufficient levels. No T line would suggest excess levels. Always consult a doctor if your result suggests you are deficient, insufficient or if you have any concerns about your vitamin d levels. Always read the instructions before use.
Covid-19 Test: When both the test (T) line and control (C) line appear, it means the test has detected SARS-CoV-2 proteins in your sample. A control (C) line on its own means COVID-19 was not present in your sample. Always read the instructions before use. Consult a doctor if you get a positive result or if you have an underlying health condition and/or concerned about catching COVID-19.
