What does the test include?

Liver function is a useful indicator of your long-term health. Poor liver function can have long term implications such as lowering immunity, increasing the inflammation in the body, which in turn increases the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and kidney disease. There are many lifestyle factors that can impact liver health such as alcohol consumption, smoking, being over weight, not exercising and eating an unhealthy diet.

Health markers
Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) is an enzyme found in liver cells which converts alanine into pyruvate for cellular production. High levels of ALT in the blood may be a sign of liver damage.
Albumin is a protein that helps move many small molecules through the blood, including bilirubin, calcium, progesterone, and medicines. Lower than normal levels of Albumin may be a sign of liver or kidney disease.
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme in the gut which fights off bad bacteria. It helps with digestion, strengthening bones, and psychological function. A higher level of ALP than normal is a sign of liver disease.
A GGT test measures the amount of GGT in the blood. When the liver is damaged, GGT may leak into the bloodstream, therefore high levels of GGT may be a sign of liver disease.
Globulin is a group of proteins in the blood which are produced in the liver. Lower than usual globulin levels can indicate kidney and liver disease. Higher than usual globulin levels can indicate autoimmune diseases, infections and inflammation..
The total protein test measures the total amount of 2 proteins, albumin and globulin, in the blood. High levels of these proteins are an indication of kidney or liver disease.

The kidney is an important organ which helps to filter and remove waste products from the blood, prevent disease, and regulate hormone and energy levels. Therefore, it is very important to check whether this organ is functioning properly as kidney disease or damage can have serious long-term health implications.

Health markers
Creatinine is a waste product made by muscles, which the kidneys filter from the blood. Elevated levels of creatinine in the blood may be a sign of poor kidney function.
The eGFR is a measure of how well the kidneys filter blood. A low eGFR may be an indication of kidney disease or failure.
Urea is a waste product that your kidneys remove from your blood. A high level of urea in the blood can indicate kidney injury or disease.
Your body needs sodium, however, it is easy to take in too much through your diet. The kidneys remove excess sodium from the blood therefore higher than usual sodium levels are indicative of kidney disease/failure.

Cholesterol is a fat-like substance that can be found in every cell of the body and is associated with heart health. Good cholesterol (High-Density Lipoprotein) helps to remove excess bad cholesterol (Low-Density Lipoprotein) from the body. Bad cholesterol may build up in the arteries causing them to become hard and narrow and increasing the risk of experiencing a heart attack or a stroke.

Health markers
HDL is good cholesterol which helps to remove excess bad cholesterol (LDL) from the body and decreases the risk of having heart problems and stroke.
The TC:HDL ratio is a measure of the level of good cholesterol (HDL) in the blood compared to the overall cholesterol level.
LDL is bad cholesterol which can build up in the arteries causing them to become hard and narrow and increasing the risk of experiencing a heart attack or a stroke.
Triglyceride is a common type of fat found in the body and is created when our body holds excess calories, alcohol and sugars. High triglycerides are often a sign of conditions such as obesity and metabolic syndrome, which increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Chronic inflammation can damage healthy cells, tissues and organs. It is also associated with long-term health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, and bowel diseases like Crohn�s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Health markers
A high-sensitivity C-reactive protein test us more sensitive than a standard c-reactive protein test. The hs-CRP test estimates your risk of heart disease and diagnoses chronic inflammation and auto-immune diseases.

This test can screen for deficiencies in active b12, and ferritin (an indication of how much iron your body stores). Vitamin and iron deficiencies have a significant impact on the immune system and the body�s ability to fight infection.
Untreated vitamin and iron deficiencies can also increase the risk of developing heart disease, liver disease, cancer, intestinal problems and rheumatoid arthritis.

Magnesium is an important mineral that supports muscle and nerve function and energy production. Chronically low magnesium levels can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and osteoporosis.

The HbA1c test is the most common test used to assess the risk of pre-diabetes and monitor Type 2 diabetes to see how well treatment plans are working. It provides a snapshot of blood glucose levels over the past two to three months. Undiagnosed/uncontrolled diabetes can have serious long-term health impacts.

Health markers
Ferritin is a blood protein that contains iron. A ferritin test indicates how much iron is stored in the body. Low ferritin levels indicate iron deficiency.
Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that supports neurological function, DNA production and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system. It also helps to energise you, regulate your mood and generate red blood cells which carry oxygen around the body. In pregnancy, Vitamin B12 contributes to foetal development and maturation of the baby�s nervous system.
Magnesium is a mineral that plays many important roles in the body such as supporting muscle and nerve function, energy production, heart health, blood sugar levels and mood regulation.
The HbA1c test measures the amount of blood sugar (glucose) attached to your haemoglobin and is the most common test used to assess the risk of pre-diabetes and monitor Type 2 diabetes.

Elevated creatine kinase levels may indicate skeletal muscle, heart or brain damage. High creatine kinase levels can also be a sign of muscle disease such as muscular dystrophy or rhabdomyolysis.

The body needs a sufficient level of calcium to keep your bones healthy and vitamin D to help your body absorb calcium. Poor bone health can cause conditions such as rickets and osteoporosis and increase risk of breaking a bone from a fall later in life.

Health markers
Creatine Kinase is a type of protein, known as an enzyme. Elevated levels of creatine kinase in the blood indicate skeletal muscle, heart or brain damage, injury, or degeneration.
Calcium is an important mineral for building strong bones and helps muscles contract and nerves transmit signals. Calcium deficiency can cause muscle aches, cramps and spasms.
Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that helps the body function properly. Sufficient levels of this Vitamin are necessary for maintaining healthy teeth, bones, and immune systems. Vitamin D can also help with heart and lung health, and with combating depression symptoms. Our bodies can get some of this nutrient from food, but sunlight is the main source.

This test checks cortisol, testosterone, and thyroid hormone levels as hormonal imbalance can increase risk of developing a range of long term health issues.

Elevated levels of Cortisol, known as the stress hormone, over long periods of time can lead to a chronic stress response in the body. This can disrupt bodily functioning and increase the risk of experiencing health problems such as anxiety, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.

Lower than usual testosterone levels can cause long term health issues for men such as infertility and erectile dysfunction. Abnormally high testosterone levels can also lead to fertility issues alongside increased risk of heart attack, enlarged prostate and liver disease. In women, high testosterone can be a sign of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

It is important to check that the thyroid is functioning properly, as the thyroid hormone system regulates everything from energy levels and sleeping patterns, to muscle strength and weight. Hypothyroidism (an under active thyroid) can lead to an increased risk of heart disease, pregnancy problems in women and the rare life threatening condition myxoedema coma. Hyperthyroidism (an over active thyroid) can lead to heart problems, eye problems and brittle bones.

Health markers
Cortisol is a hormone (the �stress� hormone) that helps your body break down fat and protein, stimulate glucose production in the liver (to help with energy), and regulate blood pressure by limiting inflammation. Therefore, cortisol affects energy and mood, and consistently high levels can cause anxiety.
Testosterone is an important hormone which regulates a significant number of bodily functions from sex drive, fertility and mood, to muscle mass, fat distribution, and the production of red blood cells. Low testosterone levels can cause symptoms such as low sex drive and muscle loss.
TSH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland and has the role of regulating the production of hormones by the thyroid gland. High TSH levels indicate hypothyroidism, and low TSH levels indicate hyperthyroidism.
Thyroxine is a hormone responsible for many vital functions including regulating metabolism, mood, and body temperature. High T4 levels indicate hyperthyroidism, and low T4 levels indicate hypothyroidism.
Triiodothyronine is a thyroid hormone that helps to regulate the body�s metabolic rate, heart and digestive functions amongst many other things. High FT3 levels indicate hyperthyroidism, and low FT3 levels indicate hypothyroidism.

A complete blood count is used to measure different parts and features of your blood including white blood cells, red blood cells and haemoglobin. A complete blood count can help in the diagnoses of a broad range of conditions, from anaemia and infection to cancer.

Health markers
White blood cells are immune system cells, which attack pathogens in blood streams such as bacteria and viruses. Your body produces more white blood cells when fighting infection.
Red blood cells contain a protein called haemoglobin, which carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body. Red blood cells also bring carbon dioxide back to your lungs.
Haemoglobin is an iron-containing protein in the blood which transports oxygen to tissues around the body. Low haemoglobin causes symptoms of anaemia such as fatigue and weakness.
