I am very positive about the diabetes test I bought from Homed-IQ! The actual testing process is easy and the doctor's result was clear. A great solution for me. I think everyone should have access to tests like the diabetes test, because it gives a lot of information. Homed-IQ makes that possible!

Overall experience was excellent. But the processing time was a bit long, maybe it was because I only ordered late Friday evening. The rest of the process went well.

The test was delivered within a day and I thought it was all easy to do, activating the test could perhaps be a little easier. At least I didn't have to go to the doctor or take a day off from work to get my blood checked or come back to a doctor's office for the results! It's quick and easy.

Shipping is very fast and the purchase process is well described in the supplied manual. It took me a maximum of five minutes to do. I knew it would be difficult for me to get to the doctor, especially because of COVID-19, so this was a lifesaver. It took 4 days to receive my results.

About the Test

What is an Anemia test?
This test measures the Hemoglobin, Ferritin, Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid levels in your blood, which can be used to determine whether or not you have Anemia. The test consists of a finger prick test that you can perform yourself from home. After this, your sample will be examined by a certified laboratory and you will receive the results within a few days. It couldn’t be easier.

What Is Anemia?
Many people think that Anemia is caused by having an insufficient amount of blood, but this is not the case. Anemia means you have a shortage of red blood cells and Hemoglobin. Your red blood cells are about 1/3 filled with hemoglobin, a protein found in the blood. Hemoglobin is red and therefore gives your blood its red color. The function of hemoglobin is to transport oxygen and carbon dioxide. This means that as soon as you have a shortage of hemoglobin, you can feel lethargic and fatigued. 

What causes Anemia?
The most common cause is blood loss during menstruation. However, a shortage of Vitamin B12 or Folic Acid can also be a factor. This is often the case with vegetarians, when their diet isn’t versatile enough, or with alcoholics. However, sometimes your body also (temporarily) produces less hemoglobin without cause and you will not notice the change at all.

Symptoms

Common symptoms of anemia are:

  • Pale skin
  • Fatigue
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Headache
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness

Results

What does the result indicate?
This test measures the Hemoglobin, Iron, Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid levels in your blood, based on the results of this test it can be determined whether you have Anemia or not.

What can you do next to prevent Anemia?
Anemia cannot always be prevented, but a healthy and varied diet does reduce the risk of Anemia. That is why it is a good idea to include the following ingredients in your daily diet:

  • Red meat
  • Eggs
  • Certain types of fish such as herring, sardines and cod
  • Legumes, such as beans, lentils or nuts
  • Red fruit
  • Dried fruit
  • Vegetables such as spinach, endive, broccoli or zucchini

Frequently Asked Questions

Accordion Content

Anemia affects more than two billion people worldwide, which is more than 30% of the total world population.

Most people are at risk of developing anemia due to poor diet, intestinal disorders, chronic illnesses, infections, and other conditions. Women who are menstruating or pregnant and those with chronic conditions are most at risk of this disease. The risk of anemia increases with age.

If you have any of the following chronic conditions, you may be at even greater risk of developing anemia:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis or another autoimmune disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Cancer
  • Liver disease
  • Thyroid disease
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis)

The signs and symptoms of anemia can easily be overlooked. In fact, many people don’t even realize they have anemia until it is diagnosed with a blood test.

While many types of anemia cannot be prevented, eating healthy foods can reduce the risk of anemia. Foods you can include in your diet include those high in iron (beef, dark green leafy vegetables, dried fruits and nuts), vitamin B12 (meat and dairy products) and folic acid (lemon juice, dark green leafy vegetables, and fortified cereals).
