Our ferritin test includes a home blood test kit that lets you check your ferritin levels at home and identify whether you might be iron deficient or even at risk of anaemia.
Ferritin is the main form by which iron is stored in the body. A ferritin blood test is therefore the best marker of iron deficiency. If your iron levels are low or high, ferritin will be the first indicator. Being deficient in iron can lead to feelings of weakness, lethargy and fatigue. Ferritin is therefore a good entry level anaemia test.
As well as monitoring iron deficiency, our ferritin check can also be used to identify and monitor iron overload (Haemochromatosis), a disorder which causes too much iron to be absorbed from the diet. Iron overload can also cause fatigue, but in addition can cause abdominal pain, inflammation of the liver and joint pain. Iron overload is an inherited condition, which usually begins to exhibit symptoms in those aged between 30 and 60.
Our home ferritin test makes private ferritin tests affordable and simple. Simply collect your sample at home and send to one of our UKAS accredited UK labs. Out of range results will be reviewed by one of our registered healthcare professionals and your results report will be made available through your own personal online dashboard. Here you can track changes over time and gain information and tips on how to improve.
Our ferritin test kit allows you to quickly gain insight into the levels of ferritin in your body and thus the levels of iron.
By establishing iron levels you gain a clear insight into any risk of either iron deficiency/anaemia or iron overload.
Should you establish you have low ferritin levels, you can then make necessary dietary modifications or seek further assistance to improve them and then track levels over time.
This is the ideal kit for anyone seeking out an iron blood test. You receive the kit, provide a sample using a simple finger prick test and then post it to our lab. From there, it will be just days until you have your ferritin level results available for your to view on a really clear and easy to understand dashboard, which tracks your numbers over time.
The kit includes everything you need to safely and simply collect your finger-prick blood sample, including instructions and CE marked equipment.
We’ll supply you with a Tracked 24 Returns envelope to post your sample direct to the lab using a priority post box.
Your results will be reviewed by our team of registered doctors and made available with any comments on your secure dashboard.

As a working mum, I often find myself training ‘tired’ as the demands of day-to-day life take their toll. Forth has enabled me to gain a valuable insight into what is happening ‘under the surface’, so I can adapt my training and lifestyle.
First time using a service like this looked at reviews previously before purchasing, happy to see the five stars reviews are reflective of the service. The kit arrived the next day after ordering I waited till the Monday to do the sample sent it off Monday AM and had the results back Tuesday PM. Wow what a quick service! Follow the tips about doing the blood sample and you shouldn’t have any issues, I found I only needed one lancet and the blood flowed freely after a hot shower and running my hands under warm water. I will definitely be using this service again as I got some surprising results which I’d like to see improve.
Forthwithlife are just so helpful - professional and extremely easy to deal with. I would highly recommend these guys and would literally never look anywhere Else. Superb company.
The service was great from beginning to end. The test kit arrived quickly and was easy to use, the instructions were clear and simple to follow and my results were available sooner than I expected. Thanks everyone!
As a former Olympic cyclist I always wanted to look after my health. This has never changed to this day but become a lot easier via Forth, it’s the only way to really understand your own body.
Efficient, great communication and information. Very fast, next day turnaround. Very, very pleased. Highly recommended and best value I have found.
Any questions I had, I emailed to the email contact and I was answered within hours. I was really impressed with the level of service and manner of response. I believe the product is very good quality and plan to utilize more of the products in the future. The process is very simple and reliable!
I suffer from a hereditary condition which causes my body to store too much iron. My biggest issue before using Forth was getting an appointment with my GP. Now using Forth I can track my iron quickly and easily and take action before levels start to affect my health
I'd put off getting regular blood tests before because of the long-winded process of a GP visit. Forth has changed all that. The process is very quick and very easy, with thorough, well-explained results delivered to your inbox within days.
Really excellent service - we bought two 'vitality' tests after reading about Forth With Life in Natural Health magazine. The packs came quickly, the phlebotomy appointment at home was convenient and professional and the results were quick and insightful- I recommend without reservation to anyone wishing to gain a comprehensive understanding of biomarkers indicative of their health and wellness!
Wasn’t feeling quite right and believed I may be chronically stressed. Took the baseline plus option which is a wider range of tests and this confirmed by expectations and also highlighted two further issues which I’ve raised with my GP. Well worth the piece of mind.
I enlisted the help of Forth to help me get to the bottom of my current health concerns. The test was really easy to and my results were available within day. Using Forth has helped me take the action needed to get my hormones back on track.
An excellent service, I got fast replies to my enquires and immediate practical solutions. I needed my results quickly after being unable to get samples on my first attempt and Forth found a resolution for me and assisted at each stage. Really great communication from individuals who have the knowledge and ability to sort things out. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
The kindest customer service I have ever experienced. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for these products.
Thank You so much for your prompt responses and helping me with my order.
Fast easy service putting my mind at rest quickly. Sent off sample on Monday, got results back Tuesday afternoon.
This should be the most common thing people do.
Great company, easy to read results. Well worth it. The cost is an investment
Really fast and reliable results.So easy to use! Have used them3 times now and will continueto use this company, amazing.
This was a really simple and quick process. I ordered the test kit, it arrived 2 days later. I did my blood test a few days later and put it straight in the post. My results were with me 3 days later. Brilliant. The dashboard is very well presented and gave me a clear view of each marker. I’m not happy with all the results, but that’s not Forth with Life’s fault. That’s down to my own body!
Very fast service, a fair cost, comprehensive results and an unexpectedly lengthy comment from a Dr about the findings.
I'll definitely be ordering again on a regular basis to keep an eye on things.
Quick delivery and clear instructions - I sent the samples off on Thursday and received the results on Saturday. The information on each statistic was clear, and the recommendations helpful. Will definitely be following up in half a year!
Taking the test is simple just make sure you follow all the instructions so you follow the correct procedures. The customer service is second to none and the results are easy to understand and follow.
