General Health Profile

General Health Profile

SKU: 284215376135191

What can I expect from this General Health Profile?

 

This home test provides you with a comprehensive check-up of your general health including diabetes (HbA1c), your liver & kidney function, bone health, iron levels and a full cholesterol profile. This profile helps you to proactively manage your health and identify/ monitor many underlying or pre-existing conditions.

 

Cholesterol (7 Biomarkers)

 

  • Total Cholesterol is a measurement of the total amount of cholesterol in the blood. This includes low-density and high-density lipoprotein cholesterols. Cholesterol is used to produce hormones for development, growth and reproduction.
  • High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) is a form of cholesterol which is considered ‘good’ cholesterol because it helps remove cholesterol from the heart’s arteries.
  • Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) is considered ‘bad’ cholesterol because it contributes to cholesterol build-up and blockage in the arteries.
  • Total Cholesterol: HDL Ratio is a mathematical calculation which indicates the ratio of total cholesterol versus ‘good’ (HDL) cholesterol in the blood.
  • Non-HDL Cholesterol is a measurement of the total amount of cholesterol in the blood excluding the ‘good’ high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL).
  • Triglyceride is another type of fat (not the same as cholesterol) found in the bloodstream.
  • HDL percentage: This is the percentage of Total Cholesterol that consists of ‘good’ (HDL) cholesterol.

 

Muscle & Bone (2 Biomarkers)

 

  • Adjusted Calcium: The adjusted calcium blood test measures the amount of free, metabolically active calcium in your blood. This is essential for healthy teeth, bones and other tissues.
  • Calcium: Calcium is an important mineral which is found in the bones as well as circulating in the blood. It has a range of functions and is essential in bone formation and blood clotting. Calcium tests are used to diagnose and monitor conditions relating to the bone, heart, and kidneys.

 

Liver Function (5 Biomarkers)

 

  • Alanine Transaminase: Alanine Transaminase (ALT) is an enzyme which can be found mostly in the liver and in small amounts in the heart, kidneys and the skeletal muscle. It is released into the bloodstream during an injury to the heart, liver, kidney and skeletal muscle. ALT tests can be used to diagnose liver disease.
  • Albumin: Albumin is a protein specifically produced in the liver. Its function consists of keeping fluids in the bloodstream as well as transporting substances like hormones and vitamins throughout the body. Albumin tests can be used to help diagnose and monitor diseases of the liver and kidney.
  • Alkaline Phosphatase: Alkaline Phosphate (ALP) is an enzyme found mostly in the liver and bone. ALP tests can be used to diagnose liver or bone disease.
  • Gamma Glutamyl Transferase: Gamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) is an enzyme mostly found in the liver and is also present in the gallbladder, spleen, pancreas and kidney. It is a significant enzyme used in the liver metabolism of drugs and other toxins. GGT tests can be used to detect liver disease and bile duct injury.
  • Total Bilirubin: Total Bilirubin is a test which measures the amount of bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin can be found in bile to help digest food. It is also produced from broken down haem, which is old red blood cells that used to carry oxygen around the body. Total bilirubin tests can be used to diagnose and monitor liver diseases and certain types of anaemia.

 

Kidney Function (3 Biomarkers)

 

  • Creatinine: Creatinine is a waste product produced by the muscles during contraction. It can be found in the blood and urine as it is excreted by the kidneys. Creatinine tests are used as an indicator of whether the kidneys are working normally.
  • Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate: Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) is a measurement of glomerular function. Glomeruli are the filters in the kidney used to filter waste products from the blood. GFR tests are used to detect and monitor changes in the kidney status.
  • Urea: Urea is a waste product of the amino acids found in proteins. It is released into the bloodstream and the kidney filters urea out of the blood and excretes it in the urine. Urea tests are used to show how well the kidneys are working as well as an indicator for diseases affecting the kidneys and liver.

 

Diabetes (1 Biomarkers)

 

  • Haemoglobin A1c: Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test is used to measure the average level of blood sugar over the past two to three months and is commonly used to diagnose and monitor diabetes. The sugar is called glucose which builds up in the blood and binds to the haemoglobin in the red blood cells.

​​​​​​​

Iron Studies (1 Biomarkers)

 

  • Iron: Iron is an important mineral that is involved in red blood cell metabolism and oxygen transport. Iron studies are used to identify iron deficiency or overload states.

​​​​​​​

Gout (1 Biomarkers)

 

  • Urate: Uric acid is a chemical created when the body breaks down substances called purines. Purines are normally produced in the body and are also found in some foods and drinks. Most of the time, a high uric acid level occurs when your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid efficiently. Things that may cause this slow-down in the removal of uric acid include being overweight, having diabetes, taking certain diuretics (sometimes called water pills) and alcohol.
