Special instructions

Please take your sample in the morning. 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 or LDL levels, then we do recommend fasting. Avoid taking a finger-prick sample from a finger used to handle hormone-gels in the past 4 weeks. 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. Avoid heavy exercise and eating meat-rich meals for 48 hours before your test. Do not take vitamin B12 for two weeks prior to this test. If your B12 is prescribed ask your doctor whether you should stop before testing.

From the expert

The Men’s 40s Blood Test provides an excellent overview of your health, giving you a general health MOT for peace of mind or for achieving your long-term health goals. Your results will allow you to be proactive about your diet and lifestyle choices and give you access to data for tracking your progress over time.  

By checking your cholesterol status and liver and kidney function, this test can help you to identify lifestyle-related risk factors. For example, a diet high in alcohol or saturated fats can contribute to raised cholesterol and fatty liver disease, causing inflammation and impairing liver function. Raised cholesterol causes fatty deposits to build up in your arteries, known as atherosclerosis, which can increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. By leading a healthy lifestyle, you can significantly reduce your risk and prevent it from getting worse.

Testosterone is important for the balance between muscle and fat, libido, mood, and energy levels. It naturally falls during the 30s and onwards. Making sure your testosterone is within the normal range for your age may help investigate the cause of low libido or weight gain.

With this test, you can also measure your nutritional markers, including ferritin, vitamin B12 and vitamin D. A lack of these essential micronutrients can leave you feeling drained and directly affect your immune system, leaving you more susceptible to infections. Fortunately, optimising your diet or taking supplements can help you to address any deficiencies.

Why take this test?

  • Find out if your testosterone levels are normal for your age.
  • Check whether your diet or lifestyle is affecting your liver and kidney function.
  • Explore your cardiovascular risk by measuring your cholesterol level.
  • Investigate nutrient deficiencies that may cause tiredness or compromised immunity.
