Why take this test?
A comprehensive look at your heart health
Did you know that diabetes is also a risk factor for cardiovascular disease? By including blood sugar markers, as well as your inflammation levels and lifestyle related risk factors, you’ll get a much better assessment of your heart health than a cholesterol test alone.
Do I need to fast?
You must not eat or drink anything other than water for at least 10 hours before the test. It is recommended to be well hydrated before the test, but avoid caffeinated drinks such as black tea or coffee. It's also recommended to avoid strenuous exercise on the same day as having a blood test.
No hidden costs
Everything from the in-clinic blood draw and tracked shipment of samples to the lab, through to delivery of the results and medical report is included in the price.
This test is performed as an in-clinic blood draw by a trained health professional and the samples are analysed by UKAS accredited labs.
Markers included in the analysis
This test helps you understand your risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes. It can also help you measure the effects from any lifestyle improvements you make, such as dietary changes, stress reduction or physical activity levels. The Cardiovascular Risk tests includes 11 health markers to assess the health of your cardiovascular system, blood sugar regulation, inflammation and kidney function. Your results will be delivered together with a personal comment from one of our doctors. Click on any of the health areas for a breakdown of the markers included. You can also click on each marker to learn more. Please note that this test should be taken while fasted, and only on weekdays (Monday - Friday).
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the world, but it can be prevented. Dyslipidemia (excess of triglycerides and cholesterol in blood) is one of the most important risk factors. High levels can effectively be controlled through diet and exercise in most people.

The purpose of diabetes related tests is to detect pre-diabetes and undiagnosed diabetes, as well as to monitor how well the diabetes is controlled. Diabetes occurs when the body’s ability to regulate the amount of blood sugar (glucose) is impaired. In type 1 diabetes the body is no longer able to produce insulin, and in the more common type 2 (which occurs more frequently with age) the body is no longer sensitive to its action. Lifestyle changes can prevent pre-diabetes from progressing to type 2 diabetes, as well as being effective in treatment.
Increased markers of inflammation can be due to a number of causes including infections, injury and autoimmune processes, and can even be a risk factor for heart disease.

The kidney profile consists of a set of tests used to evaluate the function of the kidneys. Kidneys remove waste products and excess water from the body. If not functioning properly, waste products can accumulate and make an individual unwell. There are a number of reasons that the kidneys may not be working correctly including diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
