Most results are complete within 24-48 hours (please note Vitamin D in Manchester will take slightly longer).
Put simply, the thyroid gland sets the pace for the body’s metabolism, and has a huge impact on your well-being. If the thyroid is not functioning properly, by releasing too many or not enough hormones, you have either an underactive (hypothyroidism) or overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism).
Lipids are fats and fat-like substances that are important constituents of cells and sources of energy. They include the ‘good’ and the ‘bad’ cholesterol. Monitoring and maintaining healthy levels of these lipids is important for cardiovascular health.
Cases of type-2 diabetes are rising dramatically in the Western world. Both long-term blood sugar levels and fasting blood glucose reflect both the average sugar value in recent months and the present. The results can provide an early warning if you are at risk of developing diabetes, while there is still time to reverse the situation.
A full blood count is used to evaluate your overall health and detect a wide range of disorders including anemia and inflammation. Abnormal increases or decreases in blood cell counts may indicate that you have an underlying medical condition that calls for further evaluation.
Vitamins and minerals are vital substances needed for the cells of the body to function. Early deficiency produces few symptoms but is important to catch up before permanent damage occurs. Symptoms can be vague and nonspecific, and therefore difficult to diagnose without monitoring.
The liver has many functions that are vital to life, and is profiled extensively with this package. The liver is one of the largest organs in the body. Amongst other important functions the liver detoxifies your blood, metabolises medications and nutrients, stores vitamins and minerals, produces glucose, and more.
Your kidneys filter waste products from the blood. They are also involved in regulating blood pressure, electrolyte balance, and red blood cell production in the body.
To detect and monitor inflammation and infection CRP (C-reactive protein) is used.
