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. Do not eat for 12 hours prior to your test. Drink plenty of water, if you take medication then you are allowed to take it as you would normally. 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 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 Omega 3 supplements for 24 hours prior to your test. 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 profile is an advanced diet and lifestyle check which includes a test for your omega 3:6 ratio. Fatty acids are essential for brain and heart health as well as for reducing inflammation in the body. With tests for liver and kidney function, cholesterol, diabetes, important nutrients like vitamin D, active vitamin B12 and folate, and cortisol for stress management, this profile offers the deepest insight into how your diet and lifestyle are affecting your health. 

Designed to be tracked over time, this profile is perfect for managing and optimising your health and well being.
