What can I expect from the Tiredness & Fatigue Profile?

This test is designed to discover clues in your blood as to why you may be feeling unusually tired or fatigued. It will give you information on on several common things that doctors look for in blood tests that may give physical reasons for tiredness. It includes a full blood count and tests for vitamin D, inflammation, iron levels including ferritin and thyroid function tests. Analysis of 9 essential biomarkers including: Blood Count / Iron levels / Ferritin / Transferrin / Vitamin D / Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) / Free T4 (Throxine)


 

 

This test checks 38 different biomarkers. Click on the sections below to discover more detailed information

 

 

A full blood count can be used to check your overall health and may help detect a wide range of issues such as infection, anaemia and leukaemia.

Basophils

Basophils are one of the several kinds of white blood cells you have in your body. Basophils are a part of your immune system and are created inside of your bone marrow.

Basophils percent

This is a laboratory calculation based on the number of Basolphils.

Eosinophils

Eosinophils are a kind of white blood cell that helps fight disease. Eosinophils do two important things in your immune system: curb infections and boost inflammation, which can help you fight off a disease.

Eosinophils percent

This is a laboratory calculation based on the number of Eosinophils.

Haematocrit

This test tells how much of your blood is made up of red blood cells. A low score may be a sign that you don’t have enough iron, the mineral that helps your body make red blood cells. A high score could mean you’re dehydrated or have another condition.

Haemoglobin

This is the protein in your blood that holds oxygen.

Lymphocytes

Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell. They’re an important part of your immune system

Lymphocytes percent

This is a laboratory calculation based on the number of Lymphocytes.

Mean Cell Haemoglobin Concentration

Mean Cell Haemoglobin Concentration is the average concentration of haemoglobin in your red blood cells.

Mean Cell Haemoglobin

Mean Cell Haemoglobin is the average mass of hemoglobin (Hb) per red blood cell (RBC) in a sample of blood.

Mean Corpuscular Volume

Mean Cell Volume (MCV) measures the average size of your red blood cells. 

Mean Platelet Volume

Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) tests show the mean number of platelets you have in your blood.

METAMYELOCYTES ABS

Metamyelocytes

Monocytes

Monocytes are a type of white blood cell in your immune system. Monocytes turn into macrophage or dendritic cells when an invading germ or bacteria enters your body. The cells either kill the invader or alert other blood cells to help destroy it and prevent infection.

Monocytes percent

This is a laboratory calculation based on the number of monocytes as described in the section above.

Neutrophils

Neutrophils are a type of white blood cell. They make up the biggest number of all kinds of white blood cells. They kill and digest bacteria and fungi to help your body fight infections and heal wounds. 

Neutrophils percent

This is a laboratory calculation based on the number of neutrophils.

NRBC %

Nucleated RBCs

Platelet Count

A platelet count is a lab test to measure how many platelets you have in your blood. Platelets are parts of the blood that help the blood clot.

Promyelocytes

Red Cell Count

A red blood cell (RBC) count is a blood test that tells you how many red blood cells you have.

Red Cell Distribution Width

A red cell distribution width (RDW) test measures the differences in the volume and size of your red blood cells (erythrocytes)

White Cell Count

 The White Cell Count measures the number of white cells in your blood.

 

 

Iron studies are a set of blood tests used to measure the amount of iron carried in the blood and stored in the bodies tissues. Iron deficiency can be the cause of a wide range of symptoms such as fatigue, chest pains and a shortness of breath. 

Ferritin

Ferritin is a blood protein that contains iron and it is an important measure of levels of iron storage in the body because it can provide an early sign of iron deficiency. It If your level is low, it may mean you have iron deficiency. High ferritin levels can indicate iron overload but also things like inflammation, liver disease, rheumatoid arthritis or thyroid disease. 

Iron

Iron is an important mineral that is involved in red blood cell metabolism and oxygen transport. Iron studies are used to identify iron deficiency or overload states. 

Total Iron-Binding Capacity

Total iron binding concentration measures the blood's ability to attach itself to iron and transport it around the body. If you have iron deficiency (a lack of iron in your blood), your total iron binding capacity may be high. 

Transferrin Saturation

Transferrin is a protein found in the blood that transports iron through the blood to various tissues such as the liver, spleen, and bone marrow. When your body's stores of iron run low, your liver produces more transferrin to get more iron into your blood. The result of this is that your transferrin becomes less saturated with iron and this is why a low level of transferrin saturation can mean that you are suffering from iron deficiency. 

Unsaturated Iron-Binding Capacity

Unsaturated Iron Binding Concentration (UIBC) is the amount of transferrin that is reserved for the iron transportation. Iron is used for the transportation of oxygen in the blood. A high unsaturated iron binding concentration may indicate iron deficiency but it can also be increased in pregnancy and with the use of oral contraceptives. A low unsaturated iron binding capacity may occur if someone has malnutrition, inflammation, kidney or liver disease. 

 

 

Thyroid disorders are common but often remain undiagnosed. If your thyroid isn't functioning properly, it can cause tiredness, mood problems and weight issues. 

Free T4 (thyroxine)

Free T4 (free thyroxine) is a hormone produced by the thyroid gland. This hormone is involved in several body functions including metabolism and growth. It can be used for the diagnosis of thyroid diseases such as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism as well as aiding the diagnosis of female infertility problems. Free T4 is commonly tested with TSH. 

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) are made by the pituitary gland in the brain to stimulate the thyroid gland (located by the throat). The hormones that are produced are used to regulate weight, body temperature and muscle strength. Levels of TSH are measured as it is an indicator of thyroid disease and is commonly tested with Free T4 and Free T3. It will give you a very good indication of whether your thyroid is functioning normally or not which can lead to tiredness, mood problems and weight issues.

 

 

A full blood count can be used to check your overall health and may help detect a wide range of issues such as infection, anaemia and leukaemia.

Vitamins are a group of substances that our bodies need for normal cell function, growth and development. Vitamin deficiencies can be the cause of a wide range of common symptoms and conditions. 

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a vitamin which is used in the regulation of calcium and magnesium absorption from the gut, it is also important for the growth and health of bones. Vitamin D comes from two sources; it can be ingested from foods and supplements or be produced in the skin once it is exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D tests are used to identify vitamin D deficiency and to monitor disease that interfere with fat absorption like Crohn’s disease.

There is no better way to check for underlying health problems or monitor existing conditions, than with a blood test. In collaboration with our dedicated, state-of-the-art laboratory partner in London we offer the latest in pathology testing solutions across many disciplines including biochemistry, immunology, haematology, and molecular biology. 

Whether you are concerned about your health, managing an existing condition or simply curious, our partner laboratory provides a fast, affordable, and easy way to start taking charge of your own health. 

You will receive your results on the day after your sample is received by the laboratory, this is usually within 2-3 days of having your blood taken in-store. 

The laboratory runs a 24/7 operation and tests all samples as quickly as possible after receiving them which enables the team of in-house GPs to review and communicate your results in the fastest possible timeframe. 

*It is important to note that blood tests alone are not a substitute for seeing a doctor, particularly if you have any symptoms. You should not make a diagnosis or start any treatment without a consultation with a doctor or suitably trained healthcare professional.
