Iron, a crucial mineral content in your body, is essential for the healthy development and functioning of RBCs, healthy muscles, bone marrow and other organs. While optimal iron levels are always desired, these may vary based on the age, gender, overall health profile, etc. Too low or too high iron levels may lead to an array of health concerns in varying intensities and consequences. Iron Studies Blood Test or Iron profile Blood tests are the serum blood tests that are leveraged to assess your iron content in real-time and rule out any underlying health complications.

  • Dizziness 
  • Faster or irregular heartbeat
