What can I expect from the Vitamin Profile?

Vitamin deficiencies can be the cause of a wide range of common symptoms and conditions. 

Vitamin B12 is particularly important for those on a plant-based diet. Low levels of Vitamin B12 and Folate can have very severe effects on blood and overall health. 

Vitamin D is also very important for anyone living in the UK. Up to a quarter of the population is low in Vitamin D at the end of winter. Low levels can cause a long list of health problems including fatigue, bone & muscle pain, depression and more.

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. 

Folate

Vitamin B9 (also known as folate) is essential for DNA production and the development of red blood cells. A lack of folate can cause anaemia, increase your risk of heart disease and bowel cancer. It can increase your risk of infertility. 

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is a vitamin which is necessary for the formation of red blood cells, tissue and cellular repairs and nerve health. It can be found in animal products such as poultry, milk and eggs. Vitamin B12 tests are used to help diagnose the cause of anaemia.

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.
