"After using the Welzo Tiredness & Fatigue Blood Test due to ongoing tiredness, I found the testing process simple and the results came quickly. They revealed low iron levels. With this knowledge, I adjusted my diet and started iron supplements, which markedly improved my energy. This test was a key part in addressing my fatigue."

  • Information

Ferritin

Iron is bound to proteins in the blood, which are referred to as ferritin and hemosiderin. However, iron is predominantly stored as ferritin, hence its use as a biomarker when checking for iron deficiency and levels. Ferritin is primarily stored in the liver. However, it can also be found in the spleen, bone marrow and muscles.

Vitamin B12 total

Vitamin B12 is a vitamin that's essential for many functions in your body, including red blood cell production and nerve function. Vitamin B12 can be found in food, supplements, and fortified foods. If you don't get enough vitamin B12, you may develop anaemia or nerve damage. A normal vitamin B12 level is 200 to 900 ng/mL. If you have a low vitamin B12 level, your doctor may recommend that you take a supplement or eat foods that are fortified with vitamin B12.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a vitamin that's essential for many functions in your body, including bone and muscle health. Vitamin D can be found in food, supplements, and fortified foods. If you don't get enough vitamin D, you may develop osteoporosis or muscle weakness. An average vitamin D level is 20 to 50 ng/mL. If you have a low vitamin D level, we may recommend that you take a vitamin D supplement or eat foods fortified with vitamin D.

Symptoms of fatigue in new mothers

Symptoms are:

  • Headaches

  • Lack of energy

  • Depression/ Anxiety

  • Insomnia


Additional Information

A blood test is a common procedure that is often used to check for various medical conditions. This is especially true for new mothers, who may need to undergo a blood test to check for anaemia or other health concerns.

Additional Insight from Dr Sameer Nakedar, MBBS, MRCGP, PGCert

Giving birth is one of the most beautiful experiences for most mothers. However, taking care of a newborn baby can be a considerable challenge. New mums can suffer from sleep deprivation, exhaustion, frustration or even mood issues. Mums that are breastfeeding need to optimise their nutrition to support them during this challenging time.

When to take a tired new mum blood test?

If you have given birth recently and have been feeling excessively tired ever since it is important that you check your nutrition levels. The cause of your fatigue may be a lack of vitamin B12, Vitamin D or Iron. The deficiency of these can cause lightheadedness, dizziness, insomnia and even depression or anxiety in some cases. Post-partum fatigue is medically recognised to be a sign of post-natal depression.

10%
of women in the UK
suffer from post natal depression implying that 1 in 10 women are affected. Post natal depression is also attributed to post partum fatigue.
75%
of new mums
feel extremely tired in the first month after delivery. 15% of these women have chances of developing a post natal depression.

Experts Opinion

"Often during birth, a mother may lose a lot of blood, leading to iron deficiency anaemia. Other causes of being weary and tired can be low vitamin B12 or even low vitamin D.

This test will help you get a picture of these important minerals and vitamin levels which, if low, may contribute to tiredness as a new mum."
