Analyzes of/for anemia – are indicated for women who have been pregnant. Also, this analysis if you are breastfeeding or have breastfed, if you have menstrual disorders or heavy periods (sideremia, ferritin, total iron binding capacity);

The dosage of vitamin D, specifically 25-OH is one of the important analyzes for women’s health and well-being.

“Many women have vitamin D deficiency,” explains family doctor Cătălina Pușcașu. That’s why it’s important to supplement. Supplementation with vitamin D tablets is done especially in the cold season, after dosing 25 OH vitamin D to establish the optimal dose;

In the warm season, vitamin D can be synthesized in the skin through sun exposure (not to be confused with sunbathing and lack of sunscreen).
