But our general health test goes a step further and covers:
• Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR), the gold standard for assessing kidney function in the UK.
• Break down your bad cholesterol in the form of LDL (low-density lipoprotein), and Triglycerides (TG’s) which are another type of fat (lipid) found in your blood
• Ferritin: which is the way we store iron in our body, can help to indicate the presence of iron-deficient anaemia if low levels are found.

Why Testing For Cholesterol Is Important?
Our general health tests offer advanced cholesterol testing by measuring the amount of cholesterol and triglycerides in your blood. But why is this important? One of the largest risk factors for coronary artery disease is high cholesterol levels. Furthermore, by testing your cholesterol levels, you’ll be able to get an indication of the potential of fatty deposits (plaque) currently building up in your arteries.
What Our Experts Say
Dr Gareth James
GP & Medical Director
“Our blood tests are a quick and easy way to give you an outline to how different organs in your body are functioning, giving you a good idea of your overall health, whilst also potentially catching most illnesses or diseases early. Many kidney, liver, heart or lung conditions can be diagnosed using blood tests.
Blood tests are vital if you are experiencing any persistent ill health (from feeling exhausted to weight gain) to identify the cause, or you want to check on your risk of disease or complications.
Or perhaps, you want information that will empower you to optimise your health. For instance, knowing your cholesterol levels allows you to modify your diet and fine-tune any fitness plan or healthy habits.
Both our blood tests include the comprehensive Full blood count (FBC) which checks for levels of every major cell in your blood: white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets, abnormalities of which can point towards anaemia, infection, clotting issues and even identify some cancers.
Getting your blood tested at regular intervals can also allow you to keep track of how your body changes over time, enabling you to make informed decisions about your health.”
Testing For Iron Stores (Ferritin)
Your body stores iron in a protein called ferritin. Iron is sometimes used straightaway to make oxygen for your body, but it’s also stored to restore your body when it’s not getting enough iron.
Low Iron Symptoms Include:
• Dizziness, weakness, and tiredness
• You Look pale
• Have shortness of breath
• An elevated heartbeat
If you suffer from anaemia then this general blood test will tell you your iron store ferritin levels and helps you to monitor these levels.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is ferritin and iron the same thing?
Ferritin and Iron are not the same thing in your body. Ferritin is a protein that stores iron and releases the iron when it's needed. Ferritin lives within your body's cells and circulates in tiny amounts in your blood.
What does ferritin level tell you?
A blood tests that shows ferritin levels can help you and your doctor understand how much iron your body is storing. If the test reveals that your ferritin levels are lower than normal this can indicated that your body's iron levels are also low - and this, an iron deficiency.
What is the normal cholesterol level in a blood test?
Whilst total cholesterol will give you an idea of your risk of cardiovasicular disease, the best indicator is your cholesterol ratio, which calculates the ratio of your 'protective' HDL to your total cholesterol level. The ranges for total cholesterol in adults: Normal: Less than 4 mmol/L Borderline high: 4-5 mmol/L High: At or above 6 mmol/L
