What is included in this test
Full blood count (FBC)
Measures the number and type of cells in your blood, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets and it provides important insights into overall health by evaluating blood components essential for oxygen transport, immunity, and clotting. It can help to detect anaemia, infections, bleeding disorders, and other abnormalities.
Anaemia Markers represent essential indicators to diagnose and monitor anaemia. These markers can provide insights into iron storage and utilisation within the body, helping to determine potential deficiencies or imbalances.
Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) provides insights into ongoing inflammatory processes.
Free Thyroxine (FT4) and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) are important health markers for evaluating thyroid function. Their measurements offer insights into the thyroid gland's function and help diagnose conditions like hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.
Vitamin B12, folate, and vitamin D are essential vitamins that play important roles in many bodily functions. Low levels of these vitamins can lead to a variety of symptoms, including fatigue, weakness, pale skin, tingling or numbness in the hands and feet, and shortness of breath.
HbA1c (Hemoglobin A1c) and Glucose are fundamental indicators for monitoring blood sugar regulation. These markers provide insights into an individual's long-term and short-term glucose levels aiding in the diagnosis and management of diabetes.
One of the essential sex hormones that play roles in muscle mass, bone density, and mood. Both men and women produce it, but any imbalance can lead to various health issues.
