What’s covered in this blood test?
Cholesterol (lipid profile)
Lipids, including cholesterol, are essential for the production of hormones and vitamin D. But high cholesterol levels are linked to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke. There are no symptoms for high cholesterol so regular checks are recommended. A cholesterol test/lipid profile test, will look at the different types of fats in your blood.
Diabetes (diagnosis and monitoring)
A HbA1c test measures your average blood sugar over the past 3 months, which is a good indicator for the risk of developing pre-diabetes and diabetes.
HbA1c refers to glycated haemoglobin. When the glucose (sugar) in your blood rises, it binds to the haemoglobin in your red blood cells. Red blood cells live for around 3 months, so a HbA1c test measures your average blood glucose levels over the last few months.
Iron is an important part of haemoglobin, which carries oxygen around your body. Low iron levels can cause tiredness, shortness of breath, head pain, and heart palpitations. Iron is a nutrient that helps transport oxygen around your body. If your levels are low, it can affect your energy, sleep, and fitness. Or if it’s too high, it can affect your heart health.
Your liver health is a good indicator of your long-term health — because it can affect your immunity and the inflammation in your body. Your liver can also affect everything from your energy levels and fitness to your mood and sleep. Your liver is an organ that plays a role in numerous functions of the body. A liver function test measures the levels of a range of things in your blood, like proteins, liver enzymes, and bilirubin. Measuring these things can help check your liver function and also check for signs of inflammation or damage.
Vitamin B12 is essential for a healthy brain and nervous system. It’s also needed for making red blood cells — which are important for your energy levels. Low vitamin B12 levels can make you feel depressed and can affect your sleep and fitness. A deficiency can lead to anaemia — when you can’t transport enough oxygen around your body. Symptoms of this include low energy, pins and needles, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, and difficulty concentrating.
Vitamin D plays a key role in your long-term health, particularly your bone health. It’s also important for a strong immune system and is linked to your sleep, energy levels, and mood. Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium. It’s needed to maintain strong bones and a healthy immune system. If you don’t get enough you might feel tired, get sick often, have weak bones, and feel anxious or depressed.
Full Blood Count
Full Blood Count (FBC) provides information about the different cells in the blood, these include the red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Red blood cells contain haemoglobin which carries oxygen to the different tissues in the body whereas white blood cells control the immune system and protects the body from foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses. FBC testing are used as a screening test for various disorders like anaemia and infections.
A renal profile is used to help diagnose and manage conditions affecting kidney/renal function. This profile may also be used to screen someone who is at risk of developing kidney disease, or to monitor someone with know kidney disease. Certain conditions increase the risk of developing kidney disease, risk factors include: High blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, smoking, obesity. This test measures the levels of urea, creatine and certain proteins in the blood, these values are used to determine whether the kidneys are working properly.
