Here is a list of the blood tests that I do twice a year. You can request for these tests at your GP or go directly to Innoquest Diagnostics to do them.

 

Standard blood test

  • Fasting glucose
  • Lipids
  • Liver
  • Kidney
  • Calcium, uric acid
  • Haematology
  • CK
  • Creatinine

Additional blood tests

  • Diabetes
    • Insulin
    • Hb1ac
  • HsCRP – inflammation
  • Vit D
  • Iron Studies
    • Iron
    • Transferritin
  • Endocrine
    • Ferritin
    • Homocysteine (measures if glutathione is sufficient)
    • Vitamin B12
    • Folic Acid
  • Special lipids
    • Lipoprotein(a) – read more
    • Apolipoprotein A1
    • Apolipoprotein B
  • Cancer markers
    • Ca199 (gastro/pancreatic)
    • Cea (cancer enzymes)
    • Ca125 (ovary)
    • Ca153 (breast)

 

Your standard GP will not even have heard of some of these tests for you and will not know how to interpret the results. To see a GP, you can go to Tucker Medical to see Dr Sak or you can consult with an experienced nutritionist (I see Katherine at Aman Wellness who is absolutely wonderful).
