Anaemia Screening in West Brunswick


Do you get tired very easily? Do you tend to be sleepy or feel cold you? Are you having headaches or feel dizzy? You might be iron deficient.

Iron deficiency is common in Australia, particularly in women, in small babies, children and people on restricted diets.This type of anaemia can be easily treated.


Iron test gives you an idea of your iron level and may help recognize problems with iron deficiency or overload.

The Test Process


The test to conduct will require a simple prick of blood. With a little blood sample collected, we put it into the machine. The standard levels are at 12.9. In case that your iron levels were kind of lower than the level point,we will give you different options on how to deal with that number.


To check if your iron levels are within the range, it is recommended that you have an anaemia screening test every 3 months or so. This will be an indicator of whether or not your iron medication is working for you.


If your number is slightly lower than 12.9, we recommend a number of options for you.


Achieving Your Iron Optimal Level!

We help you achieve your iron optimal level through consultations on different kinds of supplements you may be needing. However, when it comes to supplementing your iron levels, the most important thing we take into consideration is to find what effectively works for you. 

What Do We Recommend!

We guide you with some invaluable consultations that you will surely need in your journey to becoming iron deficient. As a result, you will be able to live your life less the symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia.

1. Choose an Iron in an Chelate Form

One recommendation that we would definitely make in terms of selecting an iron supplement is getting aniron in a chelate form. What that means is that the body recognises the iron as a bigger compound and it passes it through a bigger channel, so then there’s less iron sitting on the top of our guts, and then that stops any sort of side effects. That’s why we often have patients complaining of gas, any sort of constipation, or even diarrhoea in some changes. It’s because the iron isn’t being well-absorbed and it’s causing irritation to our gut, so that’s one thing.

Iron Supplement and Vitamin C

2. Choose an Iron with Vit.C/Vit.B

The other supplement we recommend is to really consider having an iron supplement with some sort of vitamin C or vitamin B with it. The reason for that is vitamin C boosts up our energy anyway so do Vitamin B’s. But also, these two vitamins help facilitate the absorption of the iron into our system. It may be that we aren’t getting enough iron in our diet or through a supplement, but it may not be picked up and put into the bloodstream as well. That is why we always recommend that you have some sort of B vitamin or vitamin C supplement available.

3.Iron Supplement- In Tablet Form or Liquid Form?

You can get iron in a tablet form, in a liquid form as well. The most important thing is just to be aware of the liquid forms. It can be really, really good when you’re trying to give children iron supplements. It’s easy to drink, and it’s often well-flavored. But sometimes what happens is it can stain children’s teeth, so just be aware of that and make sure that you’re brushing children’s teeth or your own teeth if you’re going to use an iron liquid when you are taking an iron supplement.

3.Have an Iron Test (Anaemia Screening Test) Every Three Months

We always recommend that you do an iron test every three months or so just to see whether or not your levels are well within range and whether or not your medication is working for you.
