What is tested?

Total cholesterol:
Measures the total amount of cholesterol in your blood.
High-density lipoprotein (HDL):
Known as good cholesterol. Helps remove other forms of cholesterol from your arteries.
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL):
Known as bad cholesterol. High levels can cause cholesterol to build up in your arteries.
TC:HDL ratio:
The level of good cholesterol in your blood compared to your overall cholesterol level.
Non-HDL cholesterol:
The total amount of bad cholesterol in your body. Higher numbers mean a higher risk of heart disease.
Triglycerides:
A type of fat stored in your blood. High levels can mean a higher risk of heart disease.
HDL percentage:
The percentage of good cholesterol that makes up your body's total amount of cholesterol.
HbA1c (Glycosylated Haemoglobin):
Measures the amount of blood sugar (glucose) attached to the haemoglobin in your blood and gives you your average blood sugar level from the last 3 months.
Albumin:
A protein made by your liver. It keeps fluid from leaking out of blood vessels and carries hormones and nutrients around your body.
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP):
An enzyme that exists mainly in your liver but can also be found in your bones. High levels can indicate problems with your liver, gallbladder or bones, as well as many other things.
Alanine transaminase (ALT):
An enzyme your liver uses to produce energy. High levels can indicate problems with your liver.
Gamma GT (GGT):
An enzyme found throughout your body, but mainly in your liver. High levels in your blood can signal liver problems.
Total bilirubin:
The total amount of bilirubin (a substance found in bile) in your blood. Most bilirubin comes from the body breaking down old red blood cells, and a healthy liver can remove it. But bilirubin can build up to unhealthy levels if you have liver problems.
Urea:
A waste product made when your body breaks down protein. Healthy kidneys remove almost all the urea your body produces, so blood levels can show how well your kidneys are working.
Creatinine:
A waste product made by your muscles. Healthy kidneys remove creatinine from your body, so blood levels can show how well your kidneys are working.
Glomerular filtration rate (GFR):
Your kidneys have tiny filters called glomeruli which help remove waste from your blood. A GFR test estimates how much blood passes through these filters and can detect and monitor changes in your kidneys.
Calcium:
A mineral found in your bones as well as your blood. Plays a vital role in bone health, blood clotting and muscle contraction.
Adjusted calcium:
A calculation of how much albumin (a protein made by your liver) is in your body and how much ‘free’ calcium is in your blood. (You have two types of blood calcium: ‘bound calcium’, which is attached to proteins, and ‘free calcium’ which isn’t. The free form of calcium is the most active form.
Iron:
Shows the amount of iron in your blood. Lower levels can mean you have iron deficiency anaemia, whereas high levels can suggest liver problems.
Urate (uric acid):
A by-product of the breakdown of substances in your body and from digesting particular food and drinks. Urate levels can determine if you have gout or explain why you may have recurrent kidney stones.

FAQs

This can provide insights into many areas of your body. 

General wellness blood tests give you great insight into your overall health and wellness.

Having this data at your fingertips can guide you in making insight-driven healthy lifestyle changes.

Not all cholesterol is bad for your health. It's LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol that gets a bad name. This is because having high amounts of LDL particles in your blood can cause a build-up of plaque in your arteries and increase your risk for heart disease and stroke.

Your total cholesterol levels will be specific to you. We'll let you know whether your results fall within a normal range or outside of it once we've processed your results, taking into account variables like your age and biological sex.

Common diabetes health complications include:

  • heart attack and stroke
  • difficulty healing from cuts, sores and infections
  • kidney damage
  • loss of sensitivity and feeling (nerve damage)
  • gum disease and other mouth problems
  • eye problems such as glaucoma, cataracts and vision loss

Here are some risk factors for developing diabetes:

  • having a close relative with diabetes
  • being overweight or obese
  • being over 40 (if you're white or over 25 for certain ethnicities like African-Caribbean, Black African, Chinese or South Asian)

A normal HbA1c level is specific to you and your body. We'll let you know whether your results fall within a normal range or outside of it once we've processed your results, taking into account variables like your age and biological sex.

Iron helps keep many functions in your body ticking over. It supports your general digestion, energy levels and immune system, and helps produce healthy red blood cells that carry oxygen around your body. Iron is also essential for normal brain function and can support a healthy pregnancy.

Symptoms of low iron include extreme tiredness, a lack of energy, pale skin, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, poor hair and nail health, and noticeable heartbeats (also known as heart palpitations).

No, you don’t need to fast before this test.

Talk to your doctor before taking this test. Being pregnant can have a noticeable impact on your results, so make sure to check in with your GP first.
