A men’s health blood test can help you learn about the different factors that can affect your health — whether you’re trying to improve your sleep, energy, or long-term health. Plus, you can understand your risk of developing conditions like:
With GP-reviewed results and evidence-based advice to improve your health, we support you every step of the way.
Testosterone is really important for your long-term health. Low testosterone is linked to diabetes and heart disease. High testosterone is linked to acne, mood swings, and weight gain.
Type 2 diabetes tends to affect men earlier in their lives than women. An HbA1c test measures your average blood sugar levels over the past 3 months.
CRP is linked to inflammation in your body — affecting everything from your heart health to your mood, sleep, and even weight. A raised hs-CRP level is also linked to diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and some cancers.
Men have a higher overall risk of heart disease and tend to develop it 10 years earlier than women. It's important to check your cholesterol regularly, as high levels might increase this risk.
Drinking too much alcohol, carrying excess weight, an unhealthy diet, and certain medications can affect your liver. It's essential to check your liver health as alcoholic liver disease affects more men than women.
Vitamin D is essential for your health as it's needed for healthy bones, muscles, and a strong immune system. There’s also evidence to suggest it might improve your fertility.
