Anemia Profile Test Overview
Decrease in hemoglobin level or number of red blood cells (RBC) leads to anaemia. This affect oxygen carrying capacity of blood to various tissues and organs. Commonest cause is nutritional deficiency of iron, vitamin B12 and folic acid
This can be due to either a lack of these substances in the diet, an increased loss that cannot be compensated by diet alone or an increased unmet demand during pregnancy and lactation.
Few of hereditary haemolytic anaemias include Hemoglobinopathies (Thalassemia's, Sickle cell anaemia etc.), enzyme deficiency disorders (G6PD deficiency).
Acquired Haemolytic Anaemias like Autoimmune Haemolytic Anaemias, Microangiopathic haemolytic anaemia are also common in Indian Population.
Common symptoms of anaemia include difficulty in fatigue, weakness, tiredness, irritability, headache, shortness of breath.
Anaemia Profile-Maxi includes both basic & specialised tests to identify anaemia and its cause

Frequently Asked Questions
Test is done to diagnose anaemia and to identify its causes.
It is done in people who show signs and symptoms of anaemia , who do not respond to the treatment for anaemia , in patients with family history of a hereditary anaemia , in pregnant women , in patients with chronic diseases and chronic infections
Profile includes the following group and individual test:
CBC tests for all Blood cells like RBC, WBC and Platelets , their count and morphology along with Hemoglobin level (Hb), RBC indices (MCV, MCH, MCHC, RDW) & PDW .
Serum Iron measures presence of iron in blood.
Serum transferrin measures iron transport protein transferrin.
TIBC measures Iron binding capacity to Transferrin and other proteins.
Transferrin saturation tells how much Transferrin is bound to iron.
Vitamin B12 test measures Vitamin B12 in serum.
Haemolytic Anaemias are diagnosed by tests like Haptoglobin , Osmotic Fragility , DCT, G6PD and abnormal hemoglobin studies (for hemoglobinopathies).
Reticulocyte count is useful in monitoring treatment in anaemic patients and also to know the bone marrow activity. CRP , TSH and Creatinine are essential to diagnose anaemias due to Chronic Diseases and Infections.
This test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer.
As per WHO , women with Hb < 12mg/dL & men with Hb <13mg/dL are considered anaemic.
In Iron deficiency anaemia Hb , serum Iron, ferritin levels, transferrin saturation are low and TIBC level is high.
In anaemia of chronic disease Hb, serum Iron, transferrin saturation ,TIBC are low with high ferritin.
Other investigations like G6PD, Haptoglobin, Osmotic Fragility, DCT are abnormal in Haemolytic Anaemia. Abnormal Hb studies can detect Sickle cell & Thalassemia.
CRP when high indicates Infection and Inflammation.
Creatinine if increased indicates abnormality in kidney function.
