How stress affects your health

It's normal to be stressed sometimes, but if you're constantly feeling the strain it can lead to a range of issues like:

  • poor sleep 
  • low energy and mood
  • weight gain
  • digestive issues
  • high blood pressure and heart disease
  • a weakened immune system

What can this test tell you?

This finger-prick blood test measures a range of factors that are important for helping you manage your mood and how well you can cope with stress. It will also give you insights into your heart health — an important area of your health that can be affected by stress.

What's included in this test?


Vitamin D

Vitamin D acts on areas of your brain linked to mental health. If you’re deficient, you might feel low, anxious, or depressed — affecting how well you can cope with stress.

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.



If you’re stressed a lot, it can lead to increased inflammation in your body. And over time, this type of chronic inflammation can affect your mood and increase your risk of heart disease. You can measure chronic inflammation with a high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) test.


Cholesterol profile

High levels of cortisol from long-term stress might increase your cholesterol levels. This lipid profile measures your total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides.
