Nutrition Blood Test

A finger-prick nutrition test to make sure that your body is getting the important vitamins and minerals it needs for health and well-being.

Is it for you?

Do you wonder whether your diet could be healthier, or think that you could be missing out on certain nutrients because of a special diet you follow? Do you have a condition that affects your ability to absorb vitamins and minerals properly? Or do you just think that you could have a bit more energy and want to check for iron and vitamin deficiencies? Get the answers you need from our simple at-home nutrition check.

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.
Most balanced diets should provide us with all the vitamins and minerals our bodies need without the need for supplementing or testing, but even with the best intentions not everyone eats as well as they could all the time. You may even choose to restrict your diet for animal welfare, sustainability or health and performance issues. Or maybe there are certain foods that just don't agree with you. Whatever your reason, our nutrition check can help you understand whether you need to include more vitamins and minerals in your diet, or whether you might benefit from taking a supplement.

This profile also includes other markers that could be influenced by your diet; a full cholesterol profile with a breakdown of LDL (bad) and HDL (good) cholesterol as well as a marker for inflammation (CRP-hs).

Dr Sam Rodgers MBBS, MRCGP
