HbA1c
Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), also known as glycated haemoglobin, is a longer term measure of glucose levels in your blood than a simple blood glucose test. Glucose attaches itself to the haemoglobin in your red blood cells, and as your cells live for around 12-16 weeks, it gives us a good indication of the average level of sugar in your blood over a 3 month period.
Gamma GT (GGT)
Gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) is a common enzyme found in many of your body’s tissues and organs (such as your liver). A high GGT concentration in the blood can be a sign of damage to the liver or bile ducts disease. This biomarker and ALP helps to identify between bone or liver disease. Those that drink excessive alcohol over a long-term period have elevated GGT.
Alanine Transferase (ALT)
Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is an enzyme that is primarily located in the liver. This enzyme helps to assess the health status of the liver, typically when ALT is high there may be some damage that occurred to the liver cells.
Albumin
Albumin is a protein which is made in the liver and is a good indicator of liver or kidney disease. Albumin is a transport protein for several substances including calcium, zinc, free fatty acids and bilirubin. It also has important functional roles such as the transportation of hormones and drugs. It also helps to maintain the oncotic pressure within blood plasma and so prevents fluid from leaking out into the blood vessels unnecessarily. Albumin is the most abundant protein found in the blood.
Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme predominantly found in the liver and bone. It is also found in smaller amounts in the kidneys, intestines and the placenta in pregnant women. Different parts of the body produce different forms of ALP called isoenzymes. Test can identify bone or liver disorders.
Bilirubin
Bilirubin is a waste product from the normal breakdown of red blood cells. It has an orange-yellow pigment and comes from the breakdown of haem, a component of the protein hemoglobin. Hemoglobin gives red blood cells their characteristic red color and transports oxygen around the body. Used to identify Liver disease.
Total Protein
Total Protein represents the sum of the proteins albumin and globulin in your blood. Albumin and globulin have a range of functions including keeping blood within vessels, transporting nutrients and fighting infection. Abnormal levels can indicate malnutrition as well as a liver or kidney disorder.
Globulin
Globulins are a family of proteins which are not soluble in water but do dissolve in dilute salt solutions. Globulins are made by both the liver and the immune system and make up a large proportion of blood serum protein. Proteins are essential building blocks of all cells and tissues.
Total Triglycerides
Triglycerides are a type of fat which are the most common type of fat to circulate in the blood. When you consume fats or excess calories your liver produces triglycerides which are stored in fat cells or used for energy. High levels of triglycerides increases the risk for heart disease.
HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein)
High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) also known as the “good cholesterol” can help lower your risk to heart disease. HDL removes cholesterol put of the bloodstream by transporting it to the liver. Once it arrives in the liver it is broken down and excreted in the form of bile which is a digested fluid. Cholesterol is highly influenced by the foods that we eat and the amount of physical activity that we do.
C-Reaction Protein (CRP)
C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a protein that is made in the liver and released into the bloodstream in response to inflammation. Therefore, the level of CRP will rise when there is inflammation in the body. Inflammation can occur due to a number of reasons and conditions such as infection, injury, highly active people, and diseases such as heart disease, cancer and rheumatoid arthritis.
Cholesterol
Cholesterol is a type of fat in the body which is made in the liver and found in some foods. Cholesterol plays a number of key functions such as building cell membranes which found in all cells and separates the internal environment from the cell from the outside environment. Cholesterol is also needed to make steroid hormones such as oestrogen, progesterone and Vitamin D. Measuring total cholesterol levels helps to determine your risk of heart disease, stroke and other metabolic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes.
Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL)
LDL cholesterol (low density lipoprotein) known as the “bad cholesterol” this the most dominating form of cholesterol found in your body. Having high levels of LDL cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke and other metabolic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes. When too much LDL cholesterol circulates around in your bloodstream it can stick to the blood vessel walls leading to arteriosclerosis which is a thickening or hardening of the arteries.
Non-High Density Lipoprotein (HDL)
Non-HDL cholesterol includes all the cholesterol molecules which are not HDL (or ‘good’ cholesterol). This is all the cholesterol that can be harmful and increase your risk to heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes.
CHO:HDL Ratio
The cholesterol/HDL ratio is calculated by dividing your total cholesterol value by your HDL cholesterol level (“good cholesterol”). This measurement tool helps to understand your risk to cardiovascular disease.
Luteinizing Hormone
Luteinizing Hormone (LH) is produced in your pituitary gland, a small gland located underneath the brain. This hormone for both males and females is important for sexual development and fertility.
Oestradiol
A steroid hormones made from cholesterol is produced in the ovaries of women and in smaller quantities in testes of males.
Testosterone
Testosterone is the primary sex hormone and anabolic steroid in males. For males, testosterone plays key roles in the development of male reproductive system as well as increasing muscle and bone mass, and the growth of body hair. In females, testosterone is important in growth and repair of women’s reproductive tissues and is also converted into estrogen
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is a hormone made by the pituitary gland is associated with reproduction. This hormone is essential for the reproduction of eggs in women and production of sperm in men. For women FSH peaks during ovulation and levels increase as menopause approaches.
Prolactin
Prolactin is a hormone made by the pituitary gland, a small gland located underneath the brain. This hormone causes breasts to grow and stimulates the breast glands to produce milk in pregnancy. Both males and females have small amounts of prolactin circulating around. While this hormone is more dominating in females with regards to the reproductive role it plays, prolactin may also have beneficial neuroprotective effects on the central nervous system.
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG)
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) is a protein produced by the liver that binds to the sex hormones in both males and females. These hormones are testosterone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and estrogen. When these hormones are attached to SHBG your body is unable to use them.
Free triiodothyronine (FT3)
Free triiodothyronine (FT3) is one of the two major hormones produced by the thyroid gland (the other hormone is FT4). While FT3 makes up only 10% of overall thyroid hormone, with FT4 making up the rest, FT3 is 3-4 times as strong as FT4. Majority of FT3 is bound to protein and a very small amount is free.
Free Thyroxine (FT4)
Free thyroxine (FT4) is one of the two major hormones produced by the thyroid gland (the other hormone is FT3). Both FT4 and FT3 are not bound to proteins like most other hormones. FT4 makes up the majority of the thyroid hormone with FT3 making up only 10%, these hormones help to regulate the body’s metabolism.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located near your throat and makes hormones that regulate how your body uses energy. When there are low levels of thyroid in your body, the pituitary gland which is located in your brain produced Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). When thyroid levels are high, your pituitary gland will make less TSH.
Total Iron-Binding Capacity (TIBC)
Total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) measure the blood’s ability to attach itself to iron and transport it around the body. If you have an iron deficiency (a lack of iron in your blood), your iron levels will be low but you TIBC will be high. If you have too much iron, your iron levels will be high but your TIBC will be low or normal.
Ferritin
Ferritin is a blood protein that contains iron. This measurement can help you to understand how much iron your body stores. If your blood ferritin levels are low, it can indicate your body’s iron stores are low and you have iron deficiency.
Iron
Iron is a essential component of hemoglobin formation and oxygen transport. The body requires iron for the synthesis of its oxygen transport proteins, in particular hemoglobin and myoglobin.
Unsaturated Iron binding capacity (UIBC)
The unsaturated iron-binding capacity (UIBC) is
Transferrin Saturation
Transferrin is made in the liver and is the major protein in the blood which binds to iron and transports it round the body. This test measures how much this protein is ‘saturated’ by iron.
