Well Person Profile - Private Blood Testing


If you have symptoms that you’re worried about, a simple blood test can help to determine whether or not there may be a cause for concern. It can assist our doctors in making a diagnosis, and thus treating you more effectively.

The Well Person Blood Test is an enhanced version of our Full Blood Count & Blood Chemistry test, which adds Thyroid function tests and Ferritin testing on top of the standard package of tests found in DL2.

The Full Blood Count & Blood Chemistry looks for markers of individual conditions, as well as giving a helpful indication of your overall health. This test comprises over 30 checks, including liver and kidney function, sugar levels, cholesterol, blood count and inflammatory markers. Raised Inflammatory markers can be a sign of a recent infection or indicate underlying disease process in the body e.g polymyalgia rheumatica.

In addition to everything covered by the Full Blood Count, the Well Person Blood Test also tests Thyroid Function and Ferritin levels.

What is Thyroid Function?

A healthy thyroid produces hormones that are necessary for cells in the body to function normally - but disorders of the thyroid are very common, and can lead to a wide range of health problems.

By testing Thyroid Function we can find out whether you may have a thyroid disorder. Most thyroid problems are treated easily with medication.

What Are Ferritin Levels?

Ferritin is an important protein which stores iron in the body. Along with other blood tests (including a full blood count) a Ferritin test measures levels of iron in the body and the effects of iron storage abnormalities.
