What's covered in this blood test?

Cholesterol and apolipoproteins (inc. ApoB)

ApoB (Apolipoprotein B) is a protein involved in lipid metabolism and is a component of LDL particles. Elevated ApoB levels are considered a strong predictor of cardiovascular risk, as they indicate the number of atherogenic particles that can contribute to arterial plaque buildup. Measure ApoB alongside other markers like LDL, HDL and triglycerides with this test.
This affects:
Long Term Health

CRP (high sensitivity)

High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) is an inflammation marker. Elevated levels can indicate inflammation, often linked to metabolic issues like insulin resistance, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. Monitoring hs-CRP helps in early detection and management of metabolic health risks.  
This affects:
Long Term Health
Mood
Sleep
Weight

HbA1c (blood sugar)

Tracking HbA1c is important for cardiovascular health because it reflects long-term glucose levels. Elevated HbA1c indicates poor blood sugar control, which can lead to arterial damage, inflammation and atherosclerosis, and an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases like heart attack and stroke.
This affects:
Energy
Long Term Health
Sleep
Weight

Liver profile

Monitoring liver health markers like ALT, Gamma-GT (GGT), and bilirubin is important for cardiovascular health because the liver plays an important role in lipid metabolism and inflammation. Liver dysfunction can lead to imbalances in cholesterol levels and elevated inflammatory markers, both of which increase cardiovascular risk.
This affects:
Energy
Fitness
Long Term Health
Mood
Sleep
Weight

Creatinine (kidney function)

Elevated creatinine levels can indicate compromised kidney function, which in turn has implications for cardiovascular health. Poorly functioning kidneys may cause fluid retention and high blood pressure - both risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
This affects:
Energy
Long Term Health
