About this blood test
It can identify potential health problems early on before they cause noticeable symptoms. Our male health check is a comprehensive blood test to help you assess your overall health and well-being. The test includes male hormones, prostate, kidney, liver markers, cholesterol, diabetes, vitamins, minerals, and more.
Understand your Symptoms
Checking key health markers can help you to check:
- Low levels of red blood cells (anaemia), which can cause tiredness
- Kidney disease, dehydration, and electrolyte imbalances, which can cause changes in urination, swelling, fatigue, high blood pressure, loss of appetite, weight loss, back pain
- Liver diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver cancer, alcohol abuse, certain infections, jaundice, dark urine, abdominal pain, itchy skin, bruising
- Cholesterol levels to identify heart disease risk
- Signs of inflammation such as recurrent infections, lung, digestive tract, skin issues, muscle and joint pain.
- Thyroid function, which can cause tiredness, weight issues, skin and hair problems, memory issues, anxiety and depression.
- Risk of diabetes which can cause thirstiness, increased urination, weight loss, fatigue, getting a lot of infections, slow healing wounds.
- Male hormone levels, which can cause fertility problems, fatigue, decreased sex drive, and erectile dysfunction.
- Prostate health, which can cause urination problems, blood in the urine or semen, abdominal and back pain. It also helps to identify the risk of developing prostate cancer and prostate enlargement.
How long does it take?
The test turnaround is 2-3 days.
Type of sample
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.
Liver function blood tests measure enzymes and proteins to screen for liver disease and damage. Abnormal results may indicate hepatitis, cirrhosis, cancer, alcohol abuse, medications toxicity, and infections. The panel provides key insights into liver health and function, helping diagnose and monitor conditions affecting this vital organ.
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.
These biomarkers help to diagnose and monitor certain medical conditions, such as kidney disease, dehydration, and electrolyte imbalances.
Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) and Creatine Kinase (CK) are vital indicators used to assess heart and muscle health. Elevated levels can signal damage or stress to these tissues, helping diagnose conditions like heart attacks or muscle disorders.
These are essential biomarkers for assessing bone health and metabolism. Their levels provide insights into bone density, mineral balance, and potential conditions like gout or osteoporosis.
These biomarkers measure levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, and other fats in your blood. They can help identify the risk of heart-related medical conditions.
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.
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.
Used to measure the level of vitamin D in a person's blood. Vitamin D is a crucial nutrient that plays a vital role in bone health, immune function, and various other bodily processes.
Testosterone levels help to identify fertility problems in men and investigate symptoms of low testosterone, such as fatigue, decreased sex drive, and erectile dysfunction.
Prostate biomarkers detect potential abnormalities in the prostate, such as prostate cancer or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It helps in the early detection and monitoring of prostate diseases.
