    Question Is it true about gold rings and anemia?

    I have been told a test,(although i guess not exacltly very accurate)you can quickly do yourself to test for possible anemia is to rub a gold ring down the skin on your face.
    When this happens on certain people a black line appears, apparntly this is susposed to mean you have low haemaglobin or iron or something so it could be possible anemia.
    Is there any truth in this?

    Thumbs up

    I believe there is truth in the test you are speaking of. Just because I'm severe anemic and it comes up on my skin really dark. Only I rub the gold ring across the inside of my wrist right below my hand. I was told the darker the line shows up means the more anemic you are. I have been told that my whole life and it seems to work everytime its been tested out. I beleive it may have something to do with the type of metal that is in Gold rings themselves that reacts to your body and skin having a low level of iron. But i'm not a dr. jsut a home health nurse. But I have seen it done many times by many differant people.
