What does the test include?

A full blood count can be used to check your overall health and can detect a wide range of issues such as infection, anaemia and leukaemia. A full blood count will look at your red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Health markers
A Full Blood Count (FBC) is a test to check the types and numbers of cells in your blood, including red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. An FBC can give an indication of your general health, and can also detect signs of anaemia, infection or inflammation, and bleeding or clotting disorders.
The ESR measures the time it takes for red blood cells to fall to the bottom of a test tube. The quicker they fall, the more likely it is that there are high levels of inflammation. This test is used to help diagnose conditions associated with inflammation such as arthritis, endocarditis and Crohn�s disease.

High cholesterol levels can cause your arteries to become blocked, leading to coronary heart disease, heart attack or stroke. Finding out about high levels of cholesterol can help you to make the positive lifestyle and dietary changes needed to improve your chances of a long and healthy life.

Health markers
Total cholesterol is the overall amount of cholesterol in your blood.
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.
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.
The TC:HDL ratio is a measure of the level of good cholesterol (HDL) in the blood compared to the overall cholesterol level.
Non-HDL cholesterol is calculated by subtracting the number of HDL cholesterol in the blood from the total cholesterol.
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.

Checking your levels of HbA1c is how to confirm if you have (or are at risk of developing) diabetes. Unmanaged or undiagnosed diabetes is one of the leading causes of mortality.

Health markers
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.
A glucose test measures the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood. It may be used to help diagnose or monitor diabetes.

Your kidneys play a vital role in keeping your body functioning, including removing waste products and regulating your blood pressure.

Health markers
Sodium is an electrolyte that helps the body maintain fluid and blood volume. The kidneys remove excess sodium from the blood so an elevated level may indicate kidney disease.
Potassium is an electrolyte that helps the body maintain fluid and blood volume. The kidneys remove excess potassium from the blood so an elevated level may indicate kidney disease.
Chloride is an electrolyte that helps keep the proper balance of fluids and acids in the body. The kidneys remove excess chloride from the blood so an elevated level may indicate kidney disease.
Bicarbonate is a substance that the body needs to help keep a normal acid-base (pH) balance. The kidneys remove excess bicarbonate from the blood so an elevated level may indicate kidney disease.
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.
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.
The eGFR is a measure of how well the kidneys filter blood. A low eGFR may be an indication of kidney disease or failure.

The liver is responsible for many of the body�s essential functions such as regulating blood sugar levels, fighting infections and detoxifying your blood. Good liver function is vital to your overall health and wellbeing.

Health markers
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.
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.
Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) is an enzyme involved in gluconeogenesis in the liver and kidneys, which is a process that gives your body glucose between meals. When liver cells are damaged they release AST, so higher levels are 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.
Bilirubin levels serve as a measure of liver and bile tract function. An elevated level of bilirubin in the blood could be a sign of liver disease.
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.
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.

Iron studies are a set of blood tests used to measure the amount of iron carried in the blood and stored in the body�s tissues. Iron deficiency can be the cause of a wide range of symptoms such as fatigue, chest pains and shortness of breath.

Health markers
Iron is a mineral that is important in making red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. Lower levels of iron than usual can lead to iron deficiency anaemia.
A TIBC test measures the ability of the blood to attach itself to iron and transport it around the body. A high TIBC indicates an iron deficiency and a low TIBC indicates anaemia due to red blood cells being destroyed too quickly.
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.
A transferrin saturation test tells us how much iron in the blood is bound to transferrin. Transferrin is a protein produced by the liver and it regulates the absorption of iron into the blood. Low transferrin saturation indicates iron deficiency.

Thyroid disorders are common but often remain undiagnosed. If your thyroid isn�t functioning properly it can cause tiredness, mood problems and weight issues.

Health markers
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.

A bone profile of blood tests helps to determine how well your body�s metabolic processes are affecting your skeleton. Gout is a common and complex form of arthritis that can affect anyone and is caused by high levels of uric acid. once diagnosed there are ways to manage symptoms and prevent recurrence.

A muscle profile helps to determine tissue damage.

Health markers
LDH is released by muscles and organs when tissue is damaged. Higher levels of LDH in the blood indicate tissue damage.
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.
Phosphate is a chemical essential for energy production, muscle and nerve function, and bone growth.
Uric acid is a waste product found in the blood. High uric acid levels may eventually lead to permanent bone, joint and tissue damage, kidney disease and heart disease.
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.

In women, the Luteinising Hormone (LH) is linked to ovarian hormone production and egg maturation. Checking Follicle Stimulating Hormones (FSH) can help diagnose or evaluate a number of reproductive health matters. These include menopause, polycystic ovary syndrome, ovarian cysts, abnormal vaginal or menstrual bleeding, and fertility problems.

A serum progesterone test is used to determine if ovulation is occurring if taken at the menstrual cycle. When performed at the beginning of your cycle, this test may help diagnose hormonal imbalances, like PCOS.

Prolactin is a hormone made by the pituitary gland and causes milk production. This test is performed in the evaluation of infertility or abnormal breast milk production.
Oestradiol levels may affect puberty, fertility and bone health.

Health markers
LH is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. The LH stimulates ovulation in females and the synthesis of androgen in males. A low level of LH can cause infertility and an irregular menstrual cycle. A high level of LH can indicate perimenopause or polycystic ovary syndrome.
FSH is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland and promotes the formation of eggs (or sperm in men), and ovulation. In women, an FSH level that is too high or too low can indicate that the ovaries are not producing eggs. In men, high FSH levels can indicate that the testicles are not functioning properly.
Progesterone is a hormone which plays an important role in the menstrual cycle. This hormone triggers the lining of the uterus to thicken so that it can accept a fertilised egg. Low progesterone can cause irregular periods and infertility.
Prolactin is a hormone which inhibits the hormones that trigger ovulation to allow eggs to develop and mature. Elevated levels of prolactin can reduce the production of the hormones oestrogen and testosterone. In females, abnormally high levels of prolactin can prevent ovulation.
In women, oestradiol is a hormone that is needed to maintain the eggs inside the ovaries. Abnormally high levels of oestradiol indicate an issue with the ovarian reserve. Men also produce this hormone and abnormally high levels can lead to sexual dysfunction.

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.
