  • Full Blood Count
  • Heart health
  • Kidney health
  • Liver Health
  • Diabetes Health
  • Urinalysis
Full Blood Count

A full blood count test reveals vital information about your red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Haemoglobin levels show your oxygen-carrying capacity, while white blood cell count helps spot infections or immune system issues, and platelets ensure your blood clots effectively.

Heart health

 This test helps unveil potential risks for heart disease, giving you the power to make heart-smart choices. It’s your heart’s personal wellness check.

Kidney health

This test offers insight into kidney function; it scrutinises creatinine, blood urea nitrogen and electrolyte levels, ensuring your body’s balance is in check. This test helps detect early signs of kidney issues, allowing for timely intervention.

Liver Health

This test unveils potential liver challenges by examining enzymes like ALT and AST in order to gauge liver function. Bilirubin levels give insight into how well your liver processes waste. Albumin and total protein levels ensure your liver is producing essential proteins.

Diabetes Health

A Diabetes Health Blood Test measures glucose levels, indicating how well your body manages this vital energy source. Hemoglobin A1c gives a three-month snapshot of blood sugar control. This test empowers you to monitor and manage diabetes, making informed lifestyle choices.


Urinalysis examines your urine for clues about kidney function, hydration levels, and signs of potential issues like infections or kidney stones. It checks for substances like protein, glucose, and blood cells, offering valuable insights into your overall health.

  • Bone Health
  • Iron Status
  • Thyroid health
  • Tumour Markers
  • Folic Acid
Bone Health

 A Bone Health Blood Test aims to examine your skeletal strength. This test looks at markers like calcium and phosphorus, which are essential for strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D levels play a key role in bone health, while alkaline phosphatase gives insight into bone formation.

Iron Status

This test zeroes in on crucial iron levels, ensuring you have enough for healthy red blood cells. Ferritin levels reveal your iron storage capacity, while transferrin shows how iron is transported in your bloodstream. This test empowers you to maintain optimal energy levels and prevent anaemia.

Thyroid health

A Thyroid Health Blood Test is like a compass for your body’s metabolism. It measures levels of thyroid hormones T3, T4, and TSH, essential for regulating energy and growth. This test helps identify if your thyroid is overactive (hyperthyroidism) or underactive (hypothyroidism).

Tumour Markers

This test searches for specific substances in your blood that may indicate the presence of tumours. While not definitive for diagnosis, it provides valuable clues for further investigation. This test acts like an early warning system, offering a proactive stance against potential health challenges.

Folic Acid

A Folic Acid and Vitamin B12 Blood Test is like a double-check on your body’s B-vitamin balance. It examines levels of both folate and B12, crucial for DNA synthesis, cell function, and nerve health. This test ensures you have optimal levels of these essential nutrients for overall well-being.
