Is it for you?

Have you noticed that your hair is thinning or that you are losing more hair every time you wash it? Are you a man who thinks there may be more behind your hair loss than male pattern baldness?

Special instructions

Prepare for your Advanced Hair Loss Blood Test by following these instructions. Please take your sample before 10am. Take this test when any symptoms of short-term illness have settled. Avoid heavy exercise for 48 hours beforehand. Take this test two to five days after the start of your period, ideally on day three. It can be taken any time if you do not have periods. Hormonal contraception can affect the results of this test. Taking a break from this and waiting for your periods to restart before your blood test will give more accurate results. Avoid taking your sample from a finger used to apply hormone gels/pessaries/patches in the past 4 weeks. Use gloves to apply these. Do not take biotin supplements for two days before this test, discuss this with your doctor if it is prescribed.

From the expert

There are many reasons as to why someone may be losing their hair, ranging from age, genetics (male and female pattern baldness), stress, hormone imbalances and certain illnesses/medications. Because there is not just one cause of hair loss, it can be very difficult and frustrating when trying to work out the cause of the issue.

Our Advanced Hair Loss Blood Test is a comprehensive health check aimed at investigating the main causes of hair loss. Tests include a full hormone panel to check for any imbalances, antinuclear antibodies to see if an autoimmune condition such as alopecia areata could be to blame and key minerals selenium and zinc to identify if a deficiency is the cause of the problem.

This profile also includes a number of important health markers such as kidney and liver function, protein levels and a full blood count to assess your overall state of health.
