Iron is a vital mineral in the body, essential for the production of hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to the body’s tissues. Iron levels in the blood can be measured to assess the body’s iron stores and to help diagnose conditions related to iron imbalance.

High Iron Levels: Elevated iron levels can be indicative of hemochromatosis (a condition leading to iron overload), excessive iron supplementation, or certain types of anaemia.

Low Iron Levels: Low iron levels typically suggest iron deficiency, which can lead to iron deficiency anaemia. This might be due to inadequate dietary intake, increased needs during pregnancy, blood loss, or problems with iron absorption.
