Full blood profile
Our clinic offers a unique, comprehensive full blood profile which has been developed by our head doctor to provide a good general health overview (this service was recently featured on BBC3 and in the Daily Telegraph). Full blood tests are used in our Wellman and Wellwoman screenings and also to support your doctor diagnose what may be causing your symptoms. It is also a useful tool towards understanding your cardiovascular risk, the health of your liver, checking for iron deficiency and many other purposes.
Benefits of a full blood test
The test may help to flag up any issues that need to be addressed before they develop into health problems, and provides a good reflection of how your various lifestyle choices are affecting your body. It can also help to flag any underlying, difficult-to-diagnose conditions that affect your quality of life, such as anaemia, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
This special profile covers 40 different markers in total, and includes:
• Full blood count (haematology)
• Checks for infection and inflammation
• Cholesterol (lipid) screening
• Liver function screening
• Kidney function screening
• Checks for muscle damage
• Calcium screening
• Potassium level check
• Sodium level check
• Glucose level check
• Iron and ferritin profiling
Our new, extended full blood test also includes thyroid function testing and your vitamin D level. These are especially useful if you suffer from tiredness, aches and pains and other chronic symptoms. Talk to our doctors about the right level of testing for you.
Should you require a consultation, please note that this is not included in the test price. Please note that our doctors cannot interpret your results without a consultation. You can return for a consultation to discuss your results or take them to your GP for discussion. We look forward to welcoming you at one of our clinics. We are here to answer your calls if you have any questions about this comprehensive blood test.
