Cholesterol is a form of fat we need. It helps make the outer membranes of our bodies' cells stable and people with high total cholesterol levels are more likely to get heart disease. Different forms of cholesterol ("good" and "bad") also play a role; high total cholesterol, high bad cholesterol, or low good cholesterol could raise your chances of future issues. Testing these different kinds of cholesterol and other fats in your blood (lipids) will give you a good understanding of your overall Cholesterol level.

Tests indicators included

HDL Cholesterol

HDL Cholesterol is often referred to as "good cholesterol".

LDL Cholesterol

LDL Cholesterol is sometimes referred to as "bad cholesterol".

Triglycerides

Triglycerides are a type of fat that circulates in your blood.

Liver Check

Liver function tests are used to measure specific enzymes and proteins in your blood. These tests will help determine the health of your liver by measuring the levels of proteins, liver enzymes, and bilirubin in your blood. either higher - or lower-than-normal levels of these enzymes or proteins can indicate a problem with your liver.

Tests indicators included

Aspartate Transaminase

AST is an enzyme made is cells contained in many tissues of your body. It is found in high amounts in liver cells and is released when cells are damaged of inflamed.

Alanine Transaminase

ALT is an enzyme made by liver cells and is released when cells are damaged of inflamed.

Alkaline Phosphatase

ALP is an enzyme found in many different tissues of the body. It is found in its highest concentrations in bone and the liver.

Bilirubin

Albumin

Albumin is made by the liver so can be used as indicator of liver function.

GGT

Heart Check

Heart tests will assess your heart health, by checking your risk for developing heart and circulatory disease. If you've already been diagnosed with a heart condition, these tests can help monitor your condition and the effects of your medicines if you are taking any. The high-sensitivity CRP test measures low levels of CRP in the blood to identify low levels of inflammation that are associated with risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Tests indicators included

hsCRP

High sensitivity CRP is a test which can differentiate CRP concentrations at low levels. CRP (c-reactive protein) is an acute phase protein released into the blood stream by the liver during inflammation.

Kidney Check

Your kidneys play several vital roles in maintaining your health. One of their most important jobs is to filter waste materials from the blood and expel them from the body as urine. These tests show how well the kidneys are doing these jobs and how quickly body wastes are being removed.

Tests indicators included

Creatinine

eGFR

Iron Status

Iron is an essential nutrient that, among other functions, is needed in small quantities to help form normal red blood cells (RBCs). When the level of iron is insufficient to meet the body's needs, the level of iron in the blood drops and iron stores are depleted and the most common symptoms include fatigue, weakness, dizziness, headaches and pale skin. Tests will evaluate the amount of iron in the body by measuring several substances in the blood.

Tests indicators included

Ferritin

Ferritin in the major Iron storage protein in the blood so gives a very good indication of iron status.

Total B12

Vitamin Bq2 performs a number of important functions in the body. Lack of B12 can result is a form of anaemia as well along with a number of other non-specific symptoms.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential for strong bones, because it helps the body use calcium from the diet. Deficiency has been associated with rickets, a disease in which the bone tissue doesn't properly mineralise, leading to soft bones and skeletal deformities. Research however is revealing the importance of vitamin D in protecting against a host of health problems. Tests will show whether you’re getting enough vitamin D or not, and whether you may need to take supplements or expose your skin to the sun more.

Tests indicators included

25-hydroxy Vitamin D

Vitamin D helps the body maintain bone structure by enabling calcium to be absorbed. 25 OH Vitamin D is produced in the liver from vitamin D which is provided by exposure to the sun or through the diet.

Folate

Folate (Vitamin B9) is necessary for your body to make new red blood cells. Your body needs red blood cells to carry oxygen to your organs. Not having enough red blood cells causes a condition called anemia, which can make you feel weak and tired. Tests will check your folic acid levels in your body.

Tests indicators included

Vitamin B9 (folate)

Folate is also known as Vitamin B9 or folic acid and is primarily used to aid in the diagnosis of some forms of anaemia.

Diabetes Insight

Blood cells contain haemoglobin, the protein responsible for carrying oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Sometimes glucose attaches itself to haemoglobin to form glycated haemoglobin, which is then known as HbA1c. HbA1c is therefore tested and measured for the diagnosis and monitoring of diabetes mellitus.

Tests indicators included

HbA1c

HbA1c (or glycated haemoglobin) is an indicator of your average blood glucose (sugar) levels for the previous two to three months.
