Foods high in iron include: meat, such as lamb, pork, chicken, and beef beans pumpkin and squash seeds leafy greens, such as spinach raisins and other dried fruit eggs seafood, such as clams, sardines, shrimp, and oysters iron-fortified dry and instant cereals

Test Method 1 : A sample of your blood will be needed to perform the test. The blood is tested with compounds that will react with antibodies in your blood. 

The blood sample is obtained through ñvenipuncture, î in which a needle is inserted into a vein in your arm or hand. The needle draws a small amount of blood into tubing, and the sample is stored in a test tube. 

 

This test is often done on infants who may have antibodies in their blood because their mother has a different blood type. To do this test in an infant, the skin is pricked with a small sharp needle called a lancet, usually on the heel of the foot. Blood is collected into a small glass tube, on a glass slide, or on a test strip.
