What is the Senior Male Wellness Test?

Our Senior Male Wellness Test looks at a number of key health issues common in men aged 60 and over. This includes tests for liver and kidney health, diabetes, heart disease risk, nutrition and energy, as well as iron, prostate and thyroid health. This screen is designed to provide insights into a wide number of important health markers which can be monitored over time.

Why consider a Senior Male Wellness Test?

Many men worry about their health as they get older. By undergoing a routine health check annually, you can spot any problems in the early stages and access treatment as soon as possible. This screen is very comprehensive and will give you a complete overview of your general health and wellbeing.

How does this test work?

The Better2Know Senior Male Wellness Test requires three samples: blood, urine and stool. The blood sample must be collected by a healthcare professional. You cannot collect it yourself. Once your samples have been collected, place them in the pre-paid envelope and send them for analysis at our accredited UK laboratory.
