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. 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

Our Women’s 60s Blood Test is an excellent choice for women in their 60s. As we mature, it becomes even more important to keep on top of our immunity and bone health.

This test allows you to look at your levels of ferritin (a measure of iron stores), active B12 and vitamin D, which contribute to your energy levels, mood, and immunity, protecting you from disease. Vitamin D is needed for bone mineralisation and allows the gut to absorb calcium. Making sure your levels are normal will help you maintain bone density and prevent osteoporosis as up to a third of women over the age of 50 will develop a fracture from osteoporosis in their lifetime.

Checking your liver and kidney function, as well as your cholesterol levels, gives an overview of how your diet and lifestyle may be affecting your health. It may highlight where you can make positive changes to lower your risk of heart disease, stroke, and other conditions. There is a misconception that women are protected from heart disease. Although it tends to develop later than men, it is still a significant cause of fatality among women.

This test includes a thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) level, so you can make sure your thyroid is functioning normally. Thyroid disease is up to ten times more likely to affect women than men. An underactive thyroid most commonly develops in women around their 50s and onwards—the condition can cause symptoms of tiredness, weight gain and low mood.

Why take this test?

  • Make sure your vitamin D level is normal, important for bone health.
  • Check important nutritional markers that contribute to immunity and vitality.
  • Rule out causes of tiredness, such as an underactive thyroid.
  • Monitor your cholesterol status, which directly relates to your cardiovascular risk.
