What is a Blood Chemistry Test?
This test will analyse your blood to assess the functioning of major body organs including your liver, kidneys and heart. The tests included in this screen will indicate whether any of the parts of your body tested are not functioning optimally.
Why consider a Blood Chemistry Test?
This test is suitable if you are looking for a comprehensive evaluation of your vital organs and systems in your body. By having this test, you can gain an overview of your general health and wellness.
How does this test work?
The Better2Know Blood Chemistry Test requires a blood sample. Your test kit will contain everything you need for your nurse to collect your sample. Once your nurse has collected your blood sample, simply place your sample in the pre-paid return envelope and send it for analysis at our accredited UK laboratory.
What tests will you run on my sample?
This test will assess the following:
- Kidney profile. Sodium, potassium, urea and creatinine.
- Liver profile. Transaminases (alanine and asparagine), gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT), alkaline phosphatase, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), bilirubin and albumin.
- Bone profile. Protein, albumin, calcium, phosphorus and alkaline phosphatase.
- Cardiac profile. Transaminases (alanine and asparagine), creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase and potassium.
- Lipid profile. Cholesterol, triglyceride, high-density lipoprotein (HDL cholesterol), low-density lipoprotein (LDL cholesterol).
- Glucose. Measures your blood sugar levels.
- Chloride. Essential for digestion. Helps to balance electrolytes, as well as acidity and alkalinity, which helps to maintain a healthy pH.
