Lifestyle and long-term health

Your lifestyle habits play a key role in your every day and long-term health. In fact, many chronic diseases can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle.

Lifestyle habits that help support your long-term health include:

  • eating a healthy and balanced diet
  • exercising regularly
  • not drinking too much alcohol
  • not smoking 
  • maintaining a healthy body weight 

By checking your health, you can understand what’s happening inside your body, the impact your lifestyle is having, and what you can do to feel your best.

What can this test tell you?

This finger-prick blood test will measure a range of factors that are important for your long-term health. It will give you insights into your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. And check your levels of nutrients that can help protect your health as you age.

What's included in this test?


Liver function

The health of your liver is a good indicator of your long-term health. Poor liver health can lower your immunity and increase the inflammation in your body. This increases your risk of developing a chronic disease like heart disease, diabetes, and kidney disease.


Cholesterol profile

This cholesterol profile measures your total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides — fats in your blood. The balance of total cholesterol:HDL and triglycerides:HDL are useful predictors of your risk of heart disease.



HbA1c (glycated haemoglobin) measure your average blood sugar levels of the last 3 months. Your HbA1c levels can help indicate your risk of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.


Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential for long-term health as it's needed for healthy bones, muscles, and a strong immune system.

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.


Folate (vitamin B9)

Folate is essential for your long-term health. Optimal levels are linked to a lower risk of heart disease and cancer and better long-term health.


Omega-3 and omega-6

Higher levels of omega-3 fats are linked with a lower risk of heart disease and better long-term health. Getting the right balance of omega-3 and omega-6 (AA:EPA ratio) in your body is also important. If they're imbalanced, it can lead to increased inflammation in your body — increasing your risk of heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, and some cancers.
