Fatigue can be caused by several kinds of illnesses. If you suffer from depression, memory loss, or anxiety, it might be advisable to use laboratory tests to exclude the possibility of various illnesses. Look after yourself and purchase the Blood Counts that Cause Fatigue test package.
The LOUNA Blood Values that Cause Fatigue package is designed for anyone who suffers from gloominess or fatigue. The package contains various tests that are linked to these symptoms.
For example, certain symptoms of anaemia can resemble symptoms of depression. It is also known to cause gloominess and fatigue. Iron deficiency, or anaemia, can be diagnosed by measuring haemoglobin levels. Also ferritin and Vitamin B12 are important markers.
An underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) can cause various vague symptoms, from fatigue to memory loss and weight gain. Measuring the hormone that stimulates the thyroid (thyrotropic hormone, TSH) helps evaluate the status of the thyroid.
An overactive parathyroid gland (hyperparathyroidism) can also cause general fatigue and exhaustion due to increased parathyroid hormone secretion. Hyperthyroidism is often associated with an increase in blood calcium.
Excessive alcohol consumption can also cause symptoms of depression. Therefore, the package also includes the alanine aminotransferase test (ALT), which checks for liver damage.
The package is supplemented by a long-acting sugar test called HbA1c, which shows the long-term concentration of glucose in the blood. This can reveal adult-onset (type 2) diabetes. The LOUNA Blood Values that Cause Fatigue package is ideal for both one-off and regular monitoring.
Red blood cell count
The number of red blood cells (B-Eryt)

Avarage hemoglobin concentration in red blood cells
Mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration E-MCHC. MCHC is part of the Complete blood count and Basic blood count.
Medium erythrocyte volume
Mean corpuscular volume (E-MCV). MCV is part of the Complete blood count and Basic blood count.
Inflammation and infections
CRP is short for C-reactive protein (S-CRP). In healthy individuals, the liver continuously produces small amounts of CRP. Its amount increases considerably in connection with infections, inflammation, and tissue damage in the body.
Kidneys and urinary tract
Glomerular filtration rate

Active vitamin B12

Paastoa vaativissa tutkimuksissa tulee olla syömättä ja juomatta 10–12 tuntia ennen verikoetta. Tarvittaessa tuona aikana voi juoda lasin vettä.
Paastoverikokeet suosittelemme otettavaksi kello 8–10 välisenä aikana. Lue muista suosituksista täältä.
