Know If You’re Low

Know If You’re Low‘s mission is to help female athletes preventatively know if they are low in serum ferritin (iron) so they can be their best in everything they do.

Athlete Blood Test helps athletes thrive by providing accurate and relevant biomarker data, including iron data. We’re proud to support Know If You’re Low’s mission. We believe that providing data, tools, education, and positive messaging around healthy decision making for teen athletes helps them perform better and have more fun, for a season and a lifetime.

Iron deficiency in late teen athletes is often preventable. Without a blood test, many athletes are left wondering why they aren’t performing at their best.

One of those athletes is Maya. When Maya finally figured out that low iron levels that were holding her back, her life changed forever. But Maya wasn’t satisfied just helping herself: she started Know If You’re Low, a non profit with a mission to to help female athletes preventatively know if they are low in serum ferritin (iron) so they can be their best in everything they do.

    About Athlete Blood Test

    Since 2007, Athlete Blood Test has been the leader in individualized, athlete-focused blood analysis to help athletes improve their nutrition, training, and recovery—and ultimately their performance in and enjoyment of their sport.
    How do we do it?   Over the years, we’ve reviewed blood and genetic test results from thousands of athletes.  Using this data, our athlete questionnaire, and third-party research, we’ve identified blood and genetic biomarkers predictive of performance, recovery, and training tolerance for athletes, and precision-profiled individual nutrient-related physiological tendencies.  Our proprietary algorithm, combined with a hands-on expert review of each test, identifies ideal micronutrient ranges for individual athletes based on gender, age, training, and competition frequency, duration, and intensity, and sport.
