Special instructions

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. 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. 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.
It can be difficult to get the right amounts of vitamins and minerals our bodies need for good health, and even with the addition of supplements it can take some trial and error to get the balance right. If you are cutting out food groups from your diet, or have a condition which causes issues with absorption, it can also make meeting all your body’s requirements a challenge.

This advanced nutrition tests looks at 6 important vitamins for health; folate, magnesium, iron stores and zinc as well as vitamins D and B12, so you can ensure you are getting the right amounts from your diet or supplements.

It also looks at key health markers that can be influenced by what we eat including cholesterol, HbA1c (diabetes) and inflammation so you can make sure your diet isn’t negatively affecting your health.
