Do you feel weak?

Did you know that some medicines can sometimes increase your risk of anaemia?
Important facts about iron deficiency and anaemia:
• Iron is required for good physical and mental health, to maintain energy levels and to ensure a healthy immune system
• When iron deficient, you may feel more tired and lethargic than usual, along with a range of other symptoms
• Haemaglobin (Hb) testing, as part of the Anaemia Screening Service, can provide an indication of iron levels. A lower than normal Hb reading may indicate low levels of iron
This cost of the service is $15.00.
