My cholesterol levels have always been on the high side. My motivation is to stay off medication for as long as possible — Thriva’s plan is helping me do this with my diet, mental wellbeing, and exercise.

What's included in your blood test?

We help you understand your cholesterol levels, liver function, diabetes risk and more with a blood test and a full GP report.



Cholesterol is essential for health, but high levels are linked to an increased risk of heart disease.

This test checks your:
LDL cholesterol — high amounts of this circulating in your blood can lead to a build-up of fatty deposits on your arteries
- HDL cholesterol — helps your body get rid of excess LDL (which helps protect against heart disease)
- total cholesterol — your HDL and non-HDL levels combined
- non-HDL cholesterol — helps check your VLDL cholesterol levels (linked to a build-up of plaque on your arteries)
- triglycerides — another type of fat that can increase your heart disease risk if raised



Apolipoproteins are proteins that transport fats in your blood.

This test measures your:
- apo A1 — the main protein found in HDL cholesterol (protect against heart disease)
- apo B — the main type of protein found in lipoproteins like LDL cholesterol (linked to an increased risk of heart disease)

Combined with your cholesterol levels, this gives you detailed insights into your heart disease risk.



C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein in your blood that increases when there’s inflammation in your body. If you’re experiencing chronic inflammation, it's thought to play a big role in the development of many diseases, like heart disease.

A high sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP) test can detect these low levels of inflammation.


HbA1c (diabetes risk)

Raised blood sugars are linked to an increased risk of heart disease. An HbA1c test checks your average blood sugars over the last 3 months.


Liver function

Poor liver health can increase the inflammation in your body — increasing your risk of heart disease.

This test checks for signs of liver inflammation or damage by measuring a range of things in your blood like proteins, liver enzymes, and bilirubin.


Kidney function

Your heart and kidney health are closely related.

If your kidneys aren’t functioning correctly, it increases your risk of heart disease.

Similarly, things like high blood pressure can put a strain on your kidneys. This test checks your kidney function by measuring your creatinine and eGFR levels.
