What can a general health check tell you?

A general health check gives you a clear picture of what’s going on inside and how to support your body. Check everything from your cholesterol levels to your iron and vitamin D levels.

We can help you improve your health in just 3 months — more than 70% of customers who begin with out-of-range results improve by their second blood test.

Our doctors always explain the next steps to help you maintain or improve your results. And you can access your health data anytime, anywhere, just as you should be able to.  

What's covered in this blood test?

Cholesterol (lipid profile)

Learn more

Lipids, including cholesterol, are essential for the production of hormones and vitamin D. But high cholesterol levels are linked to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

Vitamin D

Learn more

Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium. If you don’t get enough vitamin D you might feel depressed, tired, get sick often, have weak bones and muscle pain.


Learn more

Your creatinine levels can help indicate your kidney function.

CRP (high sensitivity)

Learn more

CRP is linked to inflammation in your body. Inflammation can affect your heart health, mood, sleep, and even weight.

Ferritin (iron)

Learn more

Ferritin can help you understand more about your iron levels — a nutrient that helps transport oxygen around your body. If your levels are low, it can affect your energy, sleep, and fitness. Or if it's too high, it can affect your heart health.

Thyroid profile

Learn more

Your thyroid gland produces hormones that control your body's metabolism. If it's over or underactive, it can affect your weight, energy, mood, heart, and bone health.
