More than just a test result

In conjunction with the Bloom Lab and the Bloom App, the Bloom Ferritin Test quantifies and interprets your test results for you. Your medical history – symptoms, current and past illnesses, medications, lifestyle, and family illnesses – provide the basis for this interpretation. Your data will be encrypted and protected. Applying research done by our medical team and established healthcare guidelines, the Bloom App can help you to read and understand your own test results.

Who benefits from a Ferritin test?

Although the Bloom Ferritin Test is suitable for everyone above 18 years old*, taking the test is advised if you are worried about your iron levels or belong to a group of people that are susceptible to iron deficiency or overload. These include:

  • Vegans and vegetarians
  • Athletes
  • People who have experienced previous or recent blood loss, e.g., due to heavy periods or regular blood donations
  • People with known malabsorption problems, such as coeliac disease
  • People with hemochromatosis, or with a family history of hemochromatosis
  • People having repeated blood transfusions
  • People with liver disease, such as alcoholic liver disease or chronic hepatitis C infection
     

What are signs you might suffer from iron deficiency or overload?

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you could be suffering from iron deficiency or even iron deficiency anemia.

  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Poor physical performance and weakness
  • Headaches
  • Pale skin 
  • Unusual cravings for ice, dirt, or starch

Symptoms of iron overload may include:

  • Unusual tiredness
  • Weight loss 
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Bronze/gray-looking skin
  • Joint pain or abdominal pain

* The Bloom Ferritin Test is not recommended if you are less than 18 years old, pregnant, intoxicated or in an acute situation of emergency and distress. It is furthermore important to note that ferritin is one of the so-called acute phase proteins and its serum level can increase under acute or chronic inflammatory conditions and that ferritin levels do therefore not properly reflect iron stores during inflammatory conditions (including, but not limited to infections, autoimmune diseases, organ-specific inflammatory conditions, diabetes, etc.).

Ferritin is a protein that stores iron in your body. Iron, in turn, is needed to produce healthy red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. Your body cannot produce iron itself and must therefore gain it from your diet.

In case of iron deficiency, red blood cells are unable to deliver enough oxygen, which can lead to anemia, among other issues. An excess of iron is also dangerous as it can lead to tissue damage and even organ failure. Low ferritin levels are a good indicator of iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia, while high ferritin levels can indicate iron overload.
