What's included in this blood test?

Cholesterol and apolipoproteins (heart disease risk)

Apolipoproteins are the main protein that forms lipoproteins — these transport fat, like cholesterol, around your body. Apolipoproteins are a better predictor of your heart disease risk than LDL cholesterol alone.
This affects:
Long Term Health

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for your health throughout menopause. Lower oestrogen levels can cause your bones to become weaker — increasing your risk of osteoporosis (brittle bones).
This affects:
Long Term Health

Thyroid profile

Your thyroid is a gland that controls your body’s processes. Thyroid conditions can increase your risk of osteoporosis and heart disease. An overactive thyroid causes similar symptoms to menopause — like heavy periods, fatigue, and brain fog.  
This affects:
Long Term Health

HbA1c (diabetes risk)

HbA1c measures your blood sugar control over the last 3 months. When you reach menopause, your body can’t process blood sugar (glucose) as efficiently as it used to, increasing your risk of diabetes.
This affects:
Long Term Health
