Hi, I used to go to a doctor that would check my iron regularly using a blood strip test, and then I'd get my blood drawn on occasion to get a more accurate test. My question is, I was wondering what they used to check iron with the finger prick? I can't seem to find it anywhere. I'm hoping it's something I can purchase so I can do it at home.
