Proteins

 

Protein

 

Proteins are indespensible as transporters of many other essential molecules around the body. Within your health screening high levels can be seen in disorders of over production such as myeloma, low levels can be found in conditions of failure to produce protein (eg liver disease) or excessive loss from the body (such as malnutrition or kidney disease)

 

Globulin

 

Globulins are another category of protein which form the basis of antibodies (produced by Lymphocytes). Low levels within a health screening (hypogammaglobulinaemia) can be seen in immune deficiency or excessive loss from the kidneys. Higher levels may be a sign of gammaglobulinopathy or myeloma - a state of excessive production of globulin by some of the lymphocytes.

 

Liver Function

 

GGT

 

GGT (gamma GT) is a liver enzyme. High levels are most commonly encountered when alcohol has been drunk at higher than recommended levels in the preceding few weeks. Some medication can lead to higher levels of this enzyme also.

 

Cholesterol Status

 

Cholesterol, total.

 

Cholesterol is a form of fat (lipid) bound to protein known as a lipoprotein, and is an essential component of all cell membranes (boundaries) - but an excess of it during a health screening is linked to an increased risk of heart and blood vessel disease. The total figure is useful, but it is more helpful to know the levels of the two parts which make up the bulk of the cholesterol molecule - HDL and LDL.

 

Triglycerides

 

Triglycerides are a category of fat found in the blood. Triglycerides effectively store energy for later use by the body. High triglyceride levels within a health screening are associated with pancreatitis, and possibly heart disease and strokes. Some medication can cause the level to rise, as can poorly controlled diabetes.

 

HDL Cholesterol

 

HDL (high density lipoprotein) is the component of cholesterol that is associated with good health, and high levels within a health screen are linked to reduced risk of heart and blood vessel disease.

LDL Cholesterol

 

LDL (low density lipoprotein) is the component of cholesterol that is associated with higher risk of heart and blood vessel disease. The ideal level within a health screening is below 2.5 mmol/L

 

Iron Status

 

IRON

 

The serum iron level is a measure of the circulating iron in the blood. It tells us (along with TIBC/UIBC, transferrin and ferritin) the state of the body's iron reserves. An excess in a health screening can indicate disorders of iron storage (such as haemochromatosis), while low levels may indicate (along with changes in TIBC/UIBC, transferrin saturation and ferritin) iron deficiency.

Thyroid Related

 

TSH

 

The TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is a hormone manufactured in the pituitary gland (found in the brain). It s role is to stimulate thyroxine production in the thyroid gland (found in the neck). A high level within a health screening is associated with an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism) and a low level is found if the thyroid gland is over-active (hyperthyroidism). Changes in the TSH level alone can indicate underlying thyroid problems even if the thyroxine levels are normal.

 

Free T4

 

FT4 (free thyroxine) is the active form of thyroxine, released from the thyroid gland in the neck. Its role is to control metabolism - release of energy from all cells of the body. A lack of thyroxine leads to, for example, tiredness and weight gain, whereas an excess will lead to weight loss, rapid heart rate and anxiety. It is generally believed that this level (FT4) is the most reliable indicator of thyroid status - ie whether the gland is over-active (hyperthyroidism) or underactive (hypothyroidism).

    1. Q: Do I need a Doctor’s Referral to use this service?

      A: No you do not require a Doctor’s Referral, we provide one when you have placed an order. This is free of charge, and a consultation is not required unless stated on certain tests.

    1. Q: So all I need to do is order online or over the phone, and then prepare for my blood draw.. Seriously, is that it?

      A: Yes, the process is that simple.

    1. Q: How soon will I get my results?

      A: The turnaround times are clearly stated in working days on all of our blood test pages, this is the timeframe that we estimate for turnaround of results.

    1. Q: Do I get a copy of my results?

      A: You will receive a PDF copy of your laboratory certificate which prints onto A4 paper. If you would like a paper copy, let us know and we will post one out to you.

    1. Q: Pathology points

      A: Pathology points are points we provide when purchasing a test to add more value to your order. Each test will show how many Pathology Points you will earn if purchased. Each Pathology Point is worth £1.00 and can only be redeemed against future blood test orders.

    1. Q: What is the difference between reported and unreported results?

      A: Reported results will be sent to the GP for comment, this process can take up to two working days to complete in addition to the stated turnaround time for results. If you select unreported results, then you choose not to have the interpretation of our GP and they will be sent directly to you. This is advisable if you already have a specialist to share the results with or are able to interpret them yourself. In the event of any results being of a critical nature we will always be in contact to make you aware of this.

8 Postal Testing Guarantees

Postal Testing Guarantees from Blue Horizon Medicals.

Accreditation Guarantee
The results that we provide you with are guaranteed to be from accredited laboratories

Despatch Guarantee
We will send your testing kit out the same day as we receive your order if we receive by 3pm Mondays through to Fridays, excluding bank holidays.

Change of Mind Guarantee
Should you change your mind about testing before we dispatch your test kit we can provide you with a full refund.

Returns Guarantee
If we have dispatched your kit, you can return it to our returns address below within 30 days for a full refund if it is unused and undamaged. If it is incomplete, used or damaged in any way we may deduct a fee of £5. If you have chosen for us to dispatch your kit to you by express delivery, we will deduct the charge for that. You may keep the A6 card insert with the attached information card and promotional pathology point chocolate coin with our compliments.

If you wish to cancel your order after 30 days have passed from when the order is placed you can do so by returning it to our returns address below. We are unable to refund you but can credit you with the equivalent value of your purchase in Pathology Points which can be used for future pathology testing for yourself or a guest on any participating Blue Horizon Medicals website. If your kit is returned, incomplete, used or damaged in any way, we may deduct the equivalent of £5 in Pathology Points.

Phlebotomy Money Back Guarantee
If you elect to use our nurse home visit service or BMI hospital phlebotomy service we will guarantee you your money back if the nurse or support staff do not manage to successfully collect a sample. We can however only offer this money back phlebotomy guarantee once per patient to make the guarantee fair for all.

Finger-Prick Try Again Guarantee
If you are not successful in obtaining a viable finger prick sample (1 in 10 are unsuccessful) we find that in situations where finger-prick instructions have been followed correctly and success has not been met, then a second attempt will most likely meet with the same fate. But the choice is yours – so if you want to take this risk we can send out another finger-prick kit free of charge for you, but if you fail again and request a refund we will need to deduct an administration charge of £5.
Alternatively of course we can look at phlebotomy options for you such as a nurse visit, attendance at a BMI hospital or you can arrange your own vacutainer sample collection and we won’t charge you for the failed finger-prick kit.

One year usage Guarantee
You have up to one year from when you have purchased the kit to return it to the Laboratory in the supplied envelope. After a year has expired if you still would like your test please contact us and we’ll see what we can do for you. We may just need to check expiry dates of batch components.

Refunds Guarantee
Refund requests must be made by email to assistance@bluehorizonmedicals within the timeframes stated above together with a reason for the request. Unused kits should be sent to Blue Horizon Medicals, Tavyside Health Centre, Abbey Rise, Tavistock PL19 9FD. Please do not use the supplied envelopes as these go to the laboratory and may incur further charges. We guarantee that any refunds or pathology points due to be credited will be done so within seven working days of our receipt of the kit.
