What's tested?

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.
An enzyme that exists mainly in your liver but can also be found in your bones. High levels can indicate problems with your liver, gallbladder or bones, as well as many other things.
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 when your body breaks down protein. Healthy kidneys remove almost all the urea your body produces, so blood levels can show how well your kidneys are working.
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 mineral found in your bones as well as your blood. Plays a vital role in bone health, blood clotting and muscle contraction.
A calculation of how much albumin (a protein made by your liver) is in your body and how much ‘free’ calcium is in your blood. (You have two types of blood calcium: ‘bound calcium’, which is attached to proteins, and ‘free calcium’ which isn’t. The free form of calcium is the most active form.
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.
Shows the amount of iron in your blood. Lower levels can mean you have iron deficiency anaemia, whereas high levels can suggest liver problems.
Gout is a form of arthritis characterised by a build-up of urate crystals in your joints, causing inflammation and severe, sudden joint pain.

If you have gout, you can effectively treat and manage the condition with medication and self-help strategies.
A by-product of the breakdown of substances in your body and from digesting particular food and drinks. Urate levels can determine if you have gout or explain why you may have recurrent kidney stones.

FAQs

Our general health blood test is our most in-depth blood test. It measures how health markers in your blood, like cholesterol levels, HbA1c (diabetes risk), and kidney and liver function all interact to give a useful indication of your overall health. General health blood tests can help doctors identify common conditions, including diabetes, heart disease risk and iron deficiency.

General health blood tests give you great insight into your overall health and help you monitor any ongoing conditions. They help you understand how well vital organs like your liver and kidneys are working and give you a measure of key health markers like your iron, HbA1c, and cholesterol levels. Having this data at your fingertips can guide you in making insight-driven healthy lifestyle changes.

Not all cholesterol is bad for your health. It's LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol that gets a bad name. This is because having high amounts of LDL particles in your blood can cause a build-up of plaque in your arteries and increase your risk for heart disease and stroke.

Your total cholesterol levels will be specific to you. We'll let you know whether your results fall within a normal range or outside of it once we've processed your results, taking into account variables like your age and biological sex.

Common diabetes health complications include:

  • heart attack and stroke
  • difficulty healing from cuts, sores and infections
  • kidney damage
  • loss of sensitivity and feeling (nerve damage)
  • gum disease and other mouth problems
  • eye problems such as glaucoma, cataracts and vision loss

You’re at risk of developing diabetes if you have a close relative with diabetes, if you're overweight, are over 40, or you're below 40 but have an Asian, Afro-Caribbean or Black African background. 

A 'normal' HbA1c level is specific to you and your body. We'll let you know whether your results fall within a normal range or outside of it once we've processed your results, taking into account variables like your age and biological sex.

Iron helps keep many functions in your body ticking over. It supports your general energy levels, digestion, and immune system and is needed to produce healthy red blood cells that carry oxygen around your body. Iron is also essential for normal brain function, muscle growth and development, and supporting a healthy pregnancy.

Symptoms of low iron include extreme tiredness, a lack of energy, pale skin, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, poor hair and nail health, and noticeable heartbeats (also known as heart palpitations).

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

Talk to your doctor before taking this test. Being pregnant can have a noticeable impact on your results, so make sure to check in with your GP first.
