Full blood count included in this private blood test

The Full blood Count looks at the state of the red blood cells. Red blood cells are the most abundant type of cell in the human body - investigation of red blood cell parameters is a starting point for investigations into anaemia and other blood cell disorders. Included are Red Blood Cell count, Haemoglobin level (the pigment in the red cell), Haematocrit (a measure of concentration of red cells in the whole blood), Red Cell Distribution (an indication of mature/immature red cell spread), and Mean Cell Volume and Mean Cell Haemoglobin - which are further tests of red blood cell quality. Low levels of haemoglobin, and lower scores elsewhere in the blood count, generally indicate anaemia - deficient or poor quality red blood cells.

 White blood cells

The total white blood cell count, as well as a breakdown into the five distinct white blood cell types Neutrophils, Lymphocytes, Monocytes, Eosinophils and Basophils, is included within the full blood count. Raised values may indicate viral or bacterial infection, inflammation, leukaemia, allergies or asthma or hypothyroidism, whilst decreased values may suggest sepsis, arthritis, or malignant diseases.

 
 Platelets in blood

Platelets are essential in the clotting process - they prevent excess bleeding. A low platelet count is known as thrombocytopaenia and may be caused by viral infection, alcohol excess, leukaemia or aplastic anaemia but the full list is quite exhaustive. A high platelet count is known as thrombocytosis and may indicate bacterial infection, or inflammation amongst other causes.

 
 Liver Function Test GGT  

Liver function tests are often recommended as part of any general blood test - abnormalities may indicate serious disease processes. All included parameters should be looked at as a whole - levels of Bilirubin (a by-product of liver processes), the liver enzymes ALP, ALT and Gamma GT, and Total Protein (made up of Albumin and Globulin), looked at together give insight into liver function, and how efficiently the liver is performing.

Private Kidney Testing in blood   

One of the best measures of Kidney Function we have at our disposal is the creatinine level. Creatinine is a waste product of bodily processes and it is the kidneys that control its elimination from the blood. Raised levels will usually indicate that there is reduced kidney function although a slight increase is possible as a result of mild dehydration. Low levels are of no concern. Sodium and Potassium levels allow insight into a number of processes, including kidney function - small changes can have significant implications. Urea is another reliable marker of kidney disease.

Lipid Profile cholesterol testing   

Cholesterol is a form of fat (lipid) essential for a number of processes in our bodies - but high levels have been linked to a higher risk of developing heart disease. Total Cholesterol, and importantly the 'good' and 'bad' forms (HDL and LDL), are measured. By looking at the proportions, a better assessment of your risk of heart disease can be made.

private thyroid blood tests 

A thyroid assessment consisting of TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) and FT4 ( Free thyroxine) will detect any developing or established hypothyroid (underactive thyroid) or hyperthyroid (overactive thyroid) situation.

 
 Iron Status Panel

The Iron Status Panel within this profile consists of five separate tests of iron storage which will enable detection of any iron storage disorders (either too little or too much iron). Inclusions are Total Iron, Total Iron Binding Capacity, Transferrin Saturation, UIBC and Haemoglobin

 
bone profile blood test 

Every comprehensive profile also includes a bone screen.Scrutiny of calcium levels in conjunction with protein, albumin and globulin, the enzyme Alkaline Phosphatase, enables an assessment of bone health, and of other states which can lead to abnormal levels of calcium.

 
uric acid gout testing private   

Uric acid is a normal waste product of protein breakdown within our bodies - high levels are possible which can in turn lead to gout, an inflammatory condition that painfully affects joints, most commonly the big toes. Common causes of high uric acid can be the use of diuretics (water tablets), genetic reasons or diet.

Sodium Potassium urea and electrolytes 

Within a general health screen, Sodium and Potassium should be normal - small changes can have big implications so it is important to keep an eye on these. Urea is a good market of acute kidney disease also - together, amongst others, they are known as Urea and Electrolytes and should be included as an essential part of any health screening blood test.

 
hba1c blood test 

HbA1C is the inclusion within this PLUS V blood test that differentiates it from other PLUS V packages that include Glucose. It gives a good indication of your level of blood glucose over the preceeding two to three months and can therefore be more useful than a glucose reading. It can be used for screening for and diagnosing diabetes as well as being useful for monitoring known diabetics.

 
 crp blood investigation  

C Reactive Protein (CRP) is a better non specific measure of general inflammation and infection than ESR. It is useful in assessments of arthritis and auto immune diseases, inflammatory bowel disease and pelvic inflammatory disease. Treatment effectiveness can be assessed by monitoring if the CRP level is rising or falling.

vitamin blood tests uk

Our PLUS V blood test profiles test for Vitamins D, B12, and B9 (Folate). There is over a 50% chance that you are Vitamin D deficient if you live in the UK, and Vitamin B12 and folate deficiency can cause a wide range of problems. Getting these tests individually can be costly, but as part of the PLUS V it is all included in the price.

Please Note we may not be able to test Vitamin D at all hospitals due to changed sample requirements. If this is the case we can offer Magnesium instead, or offer Vitamin D as a finger prick kit. We would recommend you check before ordering by calling 0800 0988 751 and we will be more than happy to help.
