There are over 400 types of anaemia.

They’re grouped into three categories: microcytic (includes iron-deficiency anaemia); normocytic (includes sickle-cell and other anaemias caused by genetic conditions); macrocytic (often caused by nutrient deficiency).

In all forms of anaemia, red blood cells are not functioning at optimal levels.

Iron-deficiency anaemia is the most common form of anaemia. Our practitioners can test for and diagnose all forms of anaemia.

The most common signs of anaemia are fatigue, pale skin, shortness of breath and heart palpitations.

In children, it can slow mental and physical development, while in adults it affects productivity negatively.

Another common sign of iron deficiency anaemia is eating ice. It’s thought this is because it gives anaemics a mental boost, combating fatigue.

The most common type of anaemia is iron deficiency anaemia. Pregnancy and blood loss, whether caused by menstruation or surgery can cause this type of anaemia.

Other forms of anaemia are caused by other vitamin deficiencies, like B12.

Some forms of anaemia, like sickle cell disease, are genetic. Inflammation, certain medications and chronic illness can also cause anaemia.

We can test for and identify anaemia caused by iron or other vitamin deficiencies.

If your tests show your nutrient levels are sufficient, we can test for all other types of anaemia too.
