Anemia Baseline Profile

The Anemia Baseline Profile is a comprehensive set of blood tests designed to assess and diagnose various types of anemia, a condition characterized by a deficiency of red blood cells or hemoglobin. This profile includes several key components that help evaluate the underlying causes of anemia and guide appropriate treatment.

The Anemia Baseline Profile is a meticulous compilation of blood tests designed to unravel the intricate factors contributing to anemia. Anemia, characterized by insufficient red blood cells or hemoglobin, can arise from various causes, and this profile, comprising CBC, IRON, FERRITIN, B12, and FOLATE assessments, serves as a comprehensive tool for an in-depth understanding of the condition.

Complete Blood Count (CBC):
Provides a detailed analysis of the number and types of blood cells, including red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), and platelets.
Hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) are essential indicators.

Iron Studies (Iron, Total Iron-Binding Capacity (TIBC), Transferrin Saturation):
Assesses the body’s iron levels and the capacity to bind and transport iron in the blood.
Iron levels, TIBC, and transferrin saturation help evaluate iron deficiency or excess.

Measures the level of ferritin, a protein that stores iron in the body. Low ferritin levels are often indicative of iron deficiency anemia.
Ferritin levels are crucial for evaluating iron stores in the body.

Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin):
Assesses the levels of vitamin B12, a vital nutrient for red blood cell production. Low B12 levels can lead to megaloblastic anemia.
Vitamin B12 is essential for normal functioning of the nervous system and the production of red blood cells.

Folate (Folic Acid):
Measures the levels of folic acid, a B-vitamin necessary for DNA synthesis and red blood cell production. Folate deficiency can contribute to certain types of anemia.
Folate levels are critical for preventing megaloblastic anemia.
