What's tested?

This blood test gives a good insight into whether your thyroid is working normally or not.

Your thyroid is a small gland in your neck which makes hormones. These hormones regulate your metabolic rate (how quickly your body’s cells use energy) and help maintain your core temperature.

Thyroid problems can lead to tiredness, low mood and weight issues, so it’s essential for your health that it’s working correctly.
A hormone made by your pituitary gland that stimulates your thyroid to make thyroxine.
A hormone made by your thyroid. Essential in many of your body’s functions, including metabolism and growth.
Vitamins are essential micronutrients that your body needs to function normally. When you’re lacking in vitamins long-term, it can lead to various health problems, so getting the right amount you need is vital.
Helps your body absorb calcium and magnesium. Also important for keeping your bones, teeth and muscles healthy.
Vitamins are essential micronutrients that your body needs to function normally. When you’re lacking in vitamins long-term, it can lead to various health problems, so getting the right amount you need is vital.
Necessary for red blood cell production, cell and tissue repairs, and overall nerve health.

Necessary for red blood cell production, tissue and cell repairs, and overall nerve health. Getting enough folate is essential when you’re pregnant as it helps prevent birth defects.
This test measures the different types of cholesterol in your blood and the total amount in your body.

Cholesterol is a fatty substance that helps your body make cell membranes, hormones and vitamin D.

Everyone needs a little cholesterol, but having too much can clog up your arteries and lead to health problems in the future, including heart disease and strokes.
Measures the total amount of cholesterol in your blood.
Known as good cholesterol. Helps remove other forms of cholesterol from your arteries.
Known as bad cholesterol. High levels can cause cholesterol to build up in your arteries.
The level of good cholesterol in your blood compared to your overall cholesterol level.
The total amount of bad cholesterol in your body. Higher numbers mean a higher risk of heart disease.
A type of fat stored in your blood. High levels can mean a higher risk of heart disease.
The percentage of good cholesterol that makes up your body's total amount of cholesterol.
This test checks whether you have diabetes or are at risk of developing it anytime soon.

If you already have diabetes, regular monitoring of your HbA1c levels is vital in keeping track of your condition.
Measures the amount of blood sugar (glucose) attached to the haemoglobin in your blood and gives you your average blood sugar level from the last 3 months.
This test checks how well your liver is working.

Not sure what your liver actually does? Here are some of its most important jobs:
  • regulating blood sugar levels
  • producing bile (which breaks down fat and helps digestion)
  • storing energy, vitamins and minerals
  • removing toxins (such as alcohol) from your body
  • helping your blood clot

Good liver function is vital for your overall health and wellbeing.
A protein made by your liver. It keeps fluid from leaking out of blood vessels and carries hormones and nutrients around your body.
A group of proteins made by your liver and immune system. Globulins have lots of different jobs, including fighting viruses and infections.
The total amount of albumin and globulin in your blood. Usually, there’s around twice as much albumin as there is globulin.

An enzyme your liver uses to produce energy. High levels can indicate problems with your liver.
An enzyme found throughout your body, but mainly in your liver. High levels in your blood can signal liver problems.
The total amount of bilirubin (a substance found in bile) in your blood. Most bilirubin comes from the body breaking down old red blood cells, and a healthy liver can remove it. But bilirubin can build up to unhealthy levels if you have liver problems.
This test checks how well your kidneys are working.

The kidneys are vital organs that do the following jobs:
  • remove waste and toxins from your body
  • control your blood pressure
  • control the amount of fluid in your body
  • keep your blood clean and chemically balanced
  • helps activate vitamin D

Having healthy kidneys means your body can filter and remove waste properly, and produce hormones to help your body function well.

A waste product made by your muscles. Healthy kidneys remove creatinine from your body, so blood levels can show how well your kidneys are working.
Your kidneys have tiny filters called glomeruli which help remove waste from your blood. A GFR test estimates how much blood passes through these filters and can detect and monitor changes in your kidneys.
A type of protein found in your heart, brain and skeletal muscle. High levels in your blood can indicate muscle injury or disease.
A mineral found in your bones as well as your blood. Plays a vital role in bone health, blood clotting and muscle contraction.

This test measures the amount of iron carried in your blood and how much iron is stored in your body.

Iron is important in making red blood cells which carry oxygen around your body. It also helps keep your muscles healthy, supports your immune system, and helps your organs work properly. Low iron levels can lead to tiredness, lightheadedness and fatigue.

FAQs

This test is part of our phlebotomy service, and involves a trained phlebotomist using a needle to collect blood from a vein in your arm. This is different from a finger prick test, which you can do yourself by using a lancet to prick your finger. Our phlebotomy tests require more blood than a finger prick test, but they measure a greater range of biomarkers and are an ideal choice for getting a more comprehensive picture of your health.

You can have your blood test at most home addresses in the UK, apart from Northern Ireland, the Scottish Highlands and the Isle of Man. If you don’t want to have your blood test at home, you’ll soon be able to have your test in selected Holland & Barrett stores. Watch this space!

You can view your results on the Ivie Wellness app within 48 hours of our lab partners receiving your sample. To ensure you get your results without delay, you must download the app, create an account, and register your test before returning your sample. Full instructions on how to do this will come with your test kit.

You won’t receive a complete test kit because the phlebotomist attending your appointment will bring most of the equipment needed to collect your blood sample. However, you will still receive a kit that includes the following:

  • Instructions
  • A pre-paid return envelope
  • A test request form
  • 2 name labels

Please label your blood collection tubes using the labels that come with your kit and complete the test request form too. Then give your labelled blood sample, completed test request form and return envelope to the phlebotomist. They'll return your sample for you.

 

Before your test, ensure your Ivie test kit has arrived and you’ve read the instructions. Make sure you’ve registered your test on the app and filled in your test request form, too. On the day of your test, drink plenty of water to improve hydration and enable a smoother blood draw. Avoid strenuous exercise, drinking caffeine and alcohol, and smoking immediately before your appointment, as these activities raise your blood pressure.

No, you don't need to fast before this test.

Your blood sample will be collected by a trained phlebotomist from our clinical partners, Inuvi Health Limited, who are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Please note your sample will not be collected by anyone from Ivie Wellness or Holland & Barrett, and we are not registered with the CQC.

Once you’ve ordered your test, our clinical partner will contact you within 2-3 working days to arrange your appointment. The call will come directly from the phlebotomist, and the incoming number will show either as ‘unknown’ or a 07 number.

You'll have the flexibility to choose a date and time that suits you. After your appointment is scheduled, you’ll receive a confirmation text and appointment reminders.

Appointments usually last 10 to 15 minutes, although this time length can vary depending on your test. Any additional tests may take longer, so it’s best to discuss appointment length when our clinical partners contact you to arrange your appointment.

At your appointment, a phlebotomist will draw blood from a vein (usually in your arm or the back of your hand) into one or more blood collection tubes. You’ll then need to label the tubes using the labels that come with your Ivie kit before giving your sample, test request form and envelope back to the phlebotomist. They’ll return your blood sample for you.
