Raised fasting glucose levels may be an early sign of diabetes.

If possible it is preferable to fast before your appointment.

The Diabetes (HbA1C) Blood Test is used to help diagnose type 2 diabetes and see how well your body is controlling glucose (sugar).

HbA1c level reflects the average blood glucose levels over the previous 8-12 weeks.

Underactive Thyroid Levothyroxine Monitoring Blood Test:

* Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
* Free T4 (throxine)

About the test:
This profile is to check the function of your thyroid gland. It checks the level of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) and Free T4 (FT4). It will give you a good indication into whether your thyroid is functioning normally or not.

Abnormal level of magnesium can cause heart problems, muscle weakness, lack of energy and diarrhoea.

This test measures the biologically-active component of vitamin B12, thought to be the best early indicator of vitamin B12 deficiency.

Vitamin D is essential for skeletal growth and bone health and vitamin D deficiency is common in the UK.  Dietary sources in the UK are very limited and oily fish is the only significant source. Small amounts are provided by egg yolk, red meat and fortified foods, such as formula milks for infants and toddlers, some breakfast cereals and fat spreads (margarine). The major natural source is from skin synthesis following exposure to sunlight.

From October to the beginning of April in the UK there is no ambient ultraviolet sunlight of the appropriate wavelength for skin synthesis of vitamin D. During this time, the population relies on both body stores from sun exposure in the summer and dietary sources to maintain vitamin D status.

The PSA test is a blood test to help detect prostate cancer.

Pros and cons of the PSA test:

Pros:

  • it may reassure you if the test result is normal
  • it can find early signs of cancer, meaning you can get treated early
  • PSA testing may reduce your risk of dying if you do have cancer

Cons:

  • it can miss cancer and provide false reassurance
  • it may lead to unnecessary worry and medical tests when there’s no cancer
  • it cannot tell the difference between slow-growing and fast-growing cancers
  • it may make you worry by finding a slow-growing cancer that may never cause any problems

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.

Biomarkers:

Total Prostate Specific Antigen
Free Prostate Specific Antigen

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

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.

Omega-3 is the name given to a family of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which the body needs but cannot manufacture itself. Omega-3 fats are used as the building blocks for fat derived hormones such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes. The hormones with an Omega-3 base tend to reduce inflammation, while those that have an Omega-6 base increase inflammation. In the cell membrane the competition between these two essential fats has a direct bearing on the type of local hormone produced and the level of inflammation in the cell.

 

The Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio in the cell membranes is key to the development of inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and heart disease. Diets low in oily fish and high in grains will promote inflammation and affect good health. The ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 in the West is around 15 to 1, fifteen times more Omega-6 on the cell membrane promoting inflammation. Having twice as much Omega-6 is considered by most experts to be the optimal amount but a ratio of 2:1 is not easy to produce by diet alone. Many people are aware of the health benefits of Omega-3 but the supplementation to achieve optimal health is erratic. Being able to test for Essential Red Cell Fatty Acids (Omega-6/Omega-3 ratio) identifies a person’s current status and is sufficiently specific to allow an accurate supplementation recommendation to be made.

 

Results show the ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6, against an optimal ratio and provide a supplementation recommendation to achieve this optimal ratio.

Biomarkers:

Luteinizing Hormone (LH): In women, LH is linked to ovarian hormone production and egg maturation.

Follicle stimulating hormones (FSH): FSH can help diagnose or evaluate a number of reproductive health matters. These include menopause, polycystic ovary syndrome, ovarian cysts, abnormal vaginal or menstrual bleeding, and fertility problems.

Progesterone: A serum progesterone test is used to determine if ovulation is occurring. When performed at the beginning of your cycle, this test may help diagnose hormonal imbalances, like PCOS.

Prolactin: Prolactin is a hormone made by the pituitary gland and causes milk production. This test is performed in the
evaluation of infertility.
Oestradiol: Used to measure your ovarian function and to evaluate the quality of your eggs.

About the test:
This profile checks for the full range of female hormones and is very useful for giving information about Fertility, Menopause, period problems and Hormone Replacement Therapy monitoring and other hormone related problems.

If applicable, this test should be taken on day 3 of your cycle, 3 days after your period has started – although it can also be taken on day 2,4 or 5.

If you are looking for a true picture of your natural hormone status then please take this test at least 12 weeks after stopping any hormone replacement or contraceptive pill, implant or hormone IUD. If you are premenopausal and do not wish to become pregnant then please make sure that you use an alternative non-hormonal form of contraception. If you have not been through the menopause then we suggest waiting until your periods have re-established a regular cycle (for you) before taking this test.

Coeliac Disease (CD) is an immune-mediated disease of the intestines that is triggered by the ingestion of gluten in genetically susceptible individuals. Gluten is the major protein component of wheat, rye, and barley. 

Note: If a person has been on a gluten-free diet for 6-12 months, approximately 80% will lose their antibody response. After 5 years this increases to >90%.

Therefore, for diagnosis, you should continue to eat foods that contain gluten for several weeks prior to testing. If you are monitoring your coeliac disease no preparation is necessary.

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.

This test determines your blood groups as per the 4 main blood groups defined by the ABO system.

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

Chickenpox vaccination usually costs around £140. 

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

The following blood tests are available:

1. Roche Elecsys Anti-SARS-CoV-2 S (Spike) – spike protein, quantitative, total antibodies

  • This blood test enables the determination of both the presence and level of antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, which is the target of many COVID-19 vaccine.  It can can signal whether a person has already been infected and has potentially developed immunity to the virus, and plays an important part in characterising a vaccine-induced immune response.

2. Roche Elecsys  Anti-SARS-CoV-2 – nucleocapsid (N) protein, qualitiative, total antibodies

  • This blood test enables the determination of the presence  of IgG and IgM antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein.

For more information see: COVID-19 Antibody testing | The Doctors Laboratory (tdlpathology.com)

The T-SPOT®.COVID is a CE-marked venous blood test which qualitatively detect a cell mediated (T cell) immune response to COVID-19 in human whole blood.

The T-SPOT®.COVID test is used as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive, or acquired, immune response to COVID-19, specifically the T cell response.

This test could be used alongside antibody tests to support clinical assessment of individuals, for example, who present with suspected COVID-19 but are COVID-19 PCR negative and is complementary to antibody testing.

Reactive results for the T-SPOT.COVID test may occur due to infection from other similar viruses and from prior vaccination to COVID-19.

Samples are analysed by a UKAS accredited lab (TDL).

Turnaround time: 3 days

This test cannot be done on Saturdays

A blood test to check whether you have immunity to measles mumps and rubella.

The rubella immunity test is often taken by pregnant women to establish immunity because rubella can have very serious consequences for an unborn baby.

Following hepatitis A illness, immunity is lifelong. If you have confirmed immunity by this blood test, you do not need hepatitis A vaccination which costs around £100 for both doses.

This test determines immunity against hepatitis B infection, which can be used to determine if he hepatitis B vaccination is required.

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.

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
