Comprehensive check of liver & kidney function, bone health, iron levels and a full cholesterol profile – including a full blood count checking the health and number of your red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Biomarkers:

Vitamin D
Vitamin B12
Folate (Vitamin B9)

 

About the test:
This profile is to check your Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 and Folate levels. These vitamins are all essential for the health and wellbeing.
• Vitamin B12 is particularly important for those on a plant-based diet. Low levels of Vitamin B12 and Folate can have very severe effects on blood and overall health.
• Vitamin D is also very important for anyone living in the UK. Up to a quarter of the population is low in Vitamin D at the end of winter. Low levels can cause a long list of health problems including fatigue, bone & muscle pain, depression and more.

About the test:
This profile is to check the function of your thyroid gland and includes thyroid antibodies. It checks the level of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Free T4 (FT4) Free T3 (FT3), Thyroglobulin Antibodies & Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies. It will give you
a complete picture into whether your thyroid is functioning normally or not and will also give you an indication of whether you have an thyroid autoimmune condition which is one of the commonest reasons for hypothyroidism.

Biomarkers:

About the test:
This profile is to check the levels of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA). A high PSA can sometimes indicate problems (including prostate cancer) with the prostate gland.
Please note that a PSA test cannot be relied on to either diagnose prostate cancer - or exclude the presence of prostate cancer. If it is high then you will need further investigations with a Urologist. If you
have symptoms and it is low you will still need to see a doctor to consider further investigations.

Full Blood Count (with 5 part White Cell Differential)

About the test:
This profile is our most comprehensive general wellness profile for women. It checks your liver & kidney function, your bone health, iron levels (including Ferritin) and your full cholesterol profile. It also checks your HbA1C level (which is diagnostic of diabetes) and your thyroid function. Added to all this it does a full blood count which checks the health and number of your red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
Included is a test for inflammation and as a low Vitamin D level is so common for women in the UK, we test for this as well as Vitamin B12 and Folate levels. We also test for female hormones FSH, LH and Oestrodiol and finally we test for Magnesium levels.

Biomarkers:

Chlamydia PCR
Gonorrhoea PCR
Hepatitis B Surface Antigen
Hepatitis C Antibodies
HIV 1 & 2 Antibodies, p24 Antigen

About the test:
Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B & Hepatitis C infections are all checked for in this urine and blood test.

This test measures your immunity to the varicella zoster virus which causes chickenpox and shingles.

Chickenpox vaccination usually costs around £140. 

This blood test is an interferon gamma release assay (IGRA) which determine from an individual’s immune response whether they have been infected (currently or previously) with TB. QuantiFERON-TB Gold can be used as an alternative to the Mantoux Test and is particularly useful if you previously had the BCG vaccination – the Mantoux test may not be reliable in these cases.
Turnaround time: 3 days.

Group B Streptococcus is the UK's most common cause of life-threatening infection in newborn babies, and of meningitis in babies under age 3 months.

 

  • From 35 weeks of pregnancy
  • Rectal & low vaginal swabs
  • Self-collection kit along with full instructions
  • Results: 3 to 4 days

Self-Collected HPV DNA with individual reporting of all subtypes 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66, 68.

 

The value of HPV DNA testing in cervical cancer screening and disease detection has been proven over and over again. Self-collection of specimens for HPV testing is not intended to replace existing patient management pathways but allows for:

  • Those who wish to test following a change of sexual partner
  • Option for identifying individual high risk DNA subtypes 
  • Personal preference to self-collect vaginal samples
  • An acceptable option for women who avoid having regular cervical smears
  • Self-collection for HPV increases acceptability and coverage rate of cervical cancer prevention

For more information see: TDL Self-Collection HPV Test | The Doctors Laboratory (tdlpathology.com)

Testing should be undertaken 14 days or more following exposure, onset of symptoms, or post-vaccination.

 

The following blood tests are available:

1. COVID-19 Abbott IgG Antibody
2. COVID-19 Abbott IgM Antibody
3. COVID-19 Roche Elecsys Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Total Antibody
