What is immune function?

Your immune system is your first line of defence against harmful things (like viruses and bacteria), protecting you from infections and diseases. A range of things can affect how well it functions — including many lifestyle factors like diet and exercise.

What can this test tell you?

This blood test checks your liver function and measures a range of nutrients that are important for a healthy immune system. You’ll also get insights into other areas of your health and what to focus on so you can take health into your own hands.

What's included in this test?

Arrow

Liver function

Your liver plays a role in over 500 functions in your body — like getting rid of harmful toxins and fighting infections. So if your liver function is under strain, it can affect your immune function. Your diet, alcohol intake, exercise habits, and weight have a big impact on how well your liver can function.

Arrow

Active vitamin B12 and vitamin B9

 Vitamin B12 and vitamin B9 (folate) help to support your immune system. So if you’re deficient in these nutrients it can affect how well your immune system functions.

Sometimes, your immune system might be responsible for a nutrient deficiency. For example, if you have pernicious anaemia, your immune system attacks cells in your stomach that produce intrinsic factor — which your body relies on to absorb vitamin B12.

Arrow

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential for a healthy immune system. In fact, a sign of vitamin D deficiency is getting sick often. Some evidence suggests vitamin D supplements might help reduce your risk of developing a cold or flu. In addition to this, vitamin D has also been linked to the prevention and protection against autoimmune diseases. 

Note: If you have sarcoidosis (an inflammatory disease) or a condition that affects your parathyroid glands (these regulate calcium in your body), it can make it difficult to interpret your vitamin D results. So in this case, it's best to work with your doctor and get specialist input.
