Included in this test

Blood

Blood transports oxygen, carbon dioxide, nutrients, hormones and waste products around the body. It consists of a number of cellular components; red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets, as well as a liquid called plasma. Red blood cells are an important oxygen transporter while white blood cells defend the body against infection.

Tested biomarkers
  • White Blood Cell Count (WBC)
  • Transferrin Saturation
  • Red Blood Cell (RBC)
  • RBC Distribution Width (RDW)
  • Platelet Count
  • Neutrophils
  • Monocytes
  • Mean Platelet Volume (MPV)
  • Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV)
  • Mean Corpscular Haemoglobin Concentration (MCHC)
  • Mean Cell Haemoglobin (MCH)
  • Lymphocytes
  • Iron
  • Haemoglobin
  • Haematocrit (HCT)
  • Ferritin
  • Eosinophils
  • Basophils

Cardiovascular

Your cardiovascular system consists of your heart and the network of arteries, veins and capillaries which are responsible for transporting oxygen, hormones and nutrients throughout the body. Unfortunately, coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in the UK. Factors which increase the risk of heart disease include high cholesterol, smoking, being overweight and lack of exercise.

Tested biomarkers
  • Triglycerides
  • Total Cholesterol
  • LDL
  • hs-CRP
  • HDL % of Total Cholesterol
  • HDL

Kidney

The kidneys remove harmful waste products from your body and regulates your body's water levels. They also control the release of certain substances such as electrolytes back into your bloodstream thereby maintaining the body's balance. Poor kidney function can lead to the build-up of waste products in your body causing headaches, a loss of energy, weight gain and more.

Tested biomarkers
  • Uric Acid
  • Urea
  • Creatinine
  • ALB

Liver

The liver performs hundreds of complex functions including fighting infections and illness, removing toxins, controlling cholesterol levels, helping blood to clot, aiding digestion and producing proteins. A good diet is essential in maintaining a healthy and efficient liver. Poor liver health can lead to disease, weight gain and a lack of energy.

Tested biomarkers
  • Total Protein
  • Globulin
  • Gamma GT
  • Bilirubin (total)
  • Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)
  • ALB
  • Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT)

Metabolic

Metabolism refers to the chemical processes which take place within your body that converts food into energy. Good nutrition is essential for a healthy metabolism. Problems with your metabolism can lead to fluctuations in weight as well as fatigue or hyperactivity.

Tested biomarkers
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
  • Testosterone (total)
  • Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin
  • HbA1c
  • Cortisol (9am)

Muscle

Muscles support movement and help circulate blood and other substances throughout the body. Good muscle tone can help to prevent injury.

Tested biomarkers
  • Creatine Kinase

Vitamins & minerals

Healthy levels of vitamins and minerals are essential for your body to function properly. Some vitamins known as fat soluble can be stored in your body whilst others known as water soluble cannot. You can usually get all the vitamins and minerals you need by eating a varied and balanced diet.

Tested biomarkers
  • Zinc
  • Vitamin D (25 OH)
  • Vitamin B12 (active)
  • Sodium
  • Phosphate
  • Omega 6: Omega 3 Ratio
  • Magnesium (serum)
  • Folate (serum)
  • Corrected Calcium
  • Chloride
  • Calcium
  • Bicarbonate (C02)
