Special instructions

Please take your sample as soon as possible after waking. Fasting is optional for this test. Eating fatty foods might affect the results of a small number of blood tests so we may advise a retest when you are fasted. If you are interested in your triglyceride, LDL or omega 3 levels, then we do recommend fasting. Your result could be affected by corticosteroid medication (e.g. prednisolone). Ask your doctor whether you should stop before testing. Do not take biotin supplements for 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking prescribed biotin you should discuss this with your doctor. Avoid taking a finger-prick sample from a finger used to handle hormone-gels or hormone-pessaries in the past 4 weeks. Avoid heavy exercise and eating meat-rich meals for 48 hours before your test. You should take this test before you take any vitamin or mineral supplements. Do not take vitamin B12 for one week prior to this test. If your B12 is prescribed ask your doctor whether you should stop before testing.
This venous test (which means that blood must be taken from a vein in your arm) offers an advanced understanding of key biomarkers which can affect your fitness goals, whether in the gym or on the sports field. With insights into muscle mass (testosterone), anaemia and low energy (iron status and vitamin B12), as well as stress and over-training (cortisol), it also includes tests for important nutritional markers which, if low, can affect your training progress. 

You can take this test as a snap-shot at any time, but it is designed to be tracked over time so that you can begin to understand what works for you.

With 30 different biomarkers included, this profile also includes markers for general health such as liver and kidney function, cholesterol and diabetes.
