  • Biomarkers
  • Information

Inflammation - CRP

To check inflammation levels, we conducted an advanced CRP evaluation. C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a protein found in the blood which increases in response to inflammation. CRP is produced by the liver in response to inflammation. It is a biomarker of inflammation that is strongly associated with the risk of cardiovascular disease, such as heart attack and stroke. High levels of CRP are found in people with chronic inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, and in people who have had a recent heart attack or stroke. CRP is not a specific marker for any one disease, but it is a valuable indicator of inflammation.

Liver Health - Alanine transferase

Alanine transferase;(ALT) is an enzyme found in the liver. ALT levels increase when there is liver damage or disease. A high ALT level can be a sign of liver disease, such as hepatitis or cirrhosis.

Liver Health - Alkaline phosphatase (ALP)

Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme found in the liver. ALP levels increase when there is liver damage or disease. A high ALP level can be a sign of liver disease, such as hepatitis or cirrhosis.

High-density lipoprotein (HDL)

HDL is an abbreviation for high-density lipoprotein and is often referred to as the 'good cholesterol' because of its role in removing other forms of cholesterol from your body. HDL can help to protect your heart and blood vessels due to its anti-inflammatory effect, anti-oxidant properties and its ability to remove excess fat to the liver for processing. Therefore having optimal HDL levels is essential to your health. Our Welzo HDL test will identify your HDL levels and give insight into improvements that need to be made to help boost your HDL levels. 

Protein - Globulin

Globulin is a protein that's found in your blood. Globulin levels can be checked with a blood test. A normal globulin level is 2.3 to 4.5 g/dL. If your globulin level is high, it may be a sign of an infection or inflammation. Treatment for a high globulin level depends on the underlying cause. If your globulin level is high due to an infection, treatment will focus on the infection. If your globulin level is high due to inflammation, treatment may involve medication or lifestyle changes.

Total Protein

Total protein is a measure of all the proteins in your blood. Total protein levels can be checked with a blood test. A normal total protein level is 6 to 8 g/dL. If your total protein level is low, it may be a sign of malnutrition or liver damage. Treatment for a low total protein level depends on the underlying cause. If your total protein level is low due to malnutrition, your doctor may recommend that you take a supplement or eat a balanced diet. If your total protein level is low due to liver damage, treatment will focus on the underlying liver condition.

HDL % of total

HDL (high-density lipoprotein) percentage of total calculates the amount of HDL you have compared to your total cholesterol level. This specific test biomarker assesses your cardiovascular risk by calculating the total amount of 'good' vs 'bad' and total cholesterol you have in your blood. Doctors and heart disease assessment calculators use this % of the total to evaluate your overall cardiovascular health.

Kidney Health - Creatinine

Creatinine is a waste product that's produced by your muscle metabolism. It's removed from your blood by your kidneys and then passed out in your urine. If your kidney function is impaired, creatinine can build up in your blood. This can happen if you have a kidney disease or disorder. A high creatinine level in your blood is an early indicator of kidney damage. That's because when your kidneys are damaged, they don't work as well at removing creatinine from your blood. A normal creatinine level is 0.5 to 1.2 mg/dL for men and 0.4 to 1.1 mg/dL for women. A high creatinine level may be a sign of kidney damage, but it can also be due to other factors, such as strenuous exercise, dehydration, or heart failure.

Ferritin

Ferritin is a protein that helps store iron in your cells. Iron is a mineral that's essential for many functions in your body, such as making haemoglobin, which carries oxygen in your blood. If you don't have enough iron, you may develop iron deficiency anaemia. This condition can cause fatigue, pale skin, and shortness of breath. If you have too much iron, you may have a condition called hemochromatosis. This condition can damage your organs, including your liver, heart, and pancreas.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is a vitamin that's essential for many functions in your body, including red blood cell production and nerve function. Vitamin B12 can be found in food, supplements, and fortified foods. If you don't get enough vitamin B12, you may develop anemia or nerve damage. A normal vitamin B12 level is 200 to 900 ng/mL. If you have a low vitamin B12 level, your doctor may recommend that you take a supplement or eat foods that are fortified with vitamin B12.

Liver Health - Bilirubin

Bilirubin is a yellow pigment that is produced by the breakdown of red blood cells. Bilirubin levels increase when there is liver damage or disease. A high bilirubin level can be a sign of liver disease, such as hepatitis or cirrhosis.

Liver Health - Gamma GT

Gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) is an enzyme that is found in the liver. GGT levels increase when there is liver damage or disease. A high GGT level can be a sign of liver disease, such as hepatitis or cirrhosis.

Low-density lipoprotein (LDL)

LDL or Low-density lipoprotein helps the body transport fat such as Triglycerides. However, LDL is often referred to as the 'bad' cholesterol because when your LDL levels are elevated, you face an increased risk of cardiovascular issues. These include heart attack and heart disease. This occurs as LDL can lead to fatty deposits accruing in the artery walls leading to atherosclerosis. For more information on LDL, click here.

Total cholesterol

Total cholesterol measures the total amount of cholesterol in your blood, including HDL and LDL. Cholesterol is created in the liver and plays an important role in multiple bodily functions such as; creating vitamin D and bile and being the membrane of all of your body's cells. Cholesterol helps to transport fatty acids around through the blood, and can act as an excellent indicator for your heart health, such as predispositions to cardiovascular issues such as a heart attack and heart disease.

Protein - Albumin

Albumin is a protein that's found in your blood. Albumin levels can be checked with a blood test. A normal albumin level is 3.5 to 5 g/dL. If your albumin level is low, it may be a sign of malnutrition or liver damage. Treatment for a low albumin level depends on the underlying cause. If your albumin level is low due to malnutrition, your doctor may recommend that you take a supplement or eat a balanced diet. If your albumin level is low due to liver damage, treatment will focus on the underlying liver condition.

Triglycerides

Triglycerides are a blood fat playing an essential part in the healthy function of your body. Triglycerides are the body's primary storage method for fat and can be used as an energy source. Triglycerides are created in the liver, and while they are essential for energy and fat storage, having elevated levels of triglycerides can lead to cardiovascular issues. Therefore it is crucial to monitor your triglycerides when checking overall cholesterol levels.

Non HDL Cholesterol

While we are individually measuring your HDL and LDL levels in this test, we will also carry out a non-HDL cholesterol check. This essentially includes all harmful cholesterol in your blood sample and is considered a primary indicator and risk assessment tool for cardiovascular health. Non-HDL levels should generally be below 4mmol/L. HDL and LDL levels can then be monitored to evaluate how any implementation of diet and lifestyle changes impacts your individual cholesterol levels, helping you to optimise your lifestyle based on your biomarkers.

Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)

Your estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is a blood test that measures how well your kidneys are filtering waste from your blood. A normal eGFR is greater than or equal to 60 mL/min/1.73 m2. An eGFR of less than 60 mL/min/1.73 m2 may be a sign of kidney damage. If you have a low eGFR, your doctor will likely order additional tests to determine the cause. These may include a urine tests, imaging tests, or blood tests. Treatment for a low eGFR depends on the underlying cause. If your kidneys are damaged, treatment may involve dialysis or a kidney transplant. Your eGFR is calculated using your creatinine level, age, race, and gender. Your doctor can use your eGFR to estimate how well your kidneys are working and to check for kidney damage. If you have a low eGFR, it's important to see your doctor so that the cause can be determined and treated. Untreated kidney damage can lead to serious health problems, such as end-stage renal disease.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a vitamin that's essential for many functions in your body, such as bone and muscle health. Vitamin D can be obtained from sun exposure, food, and supplements. If you don't get enough vitamin D, you may develop vitamin D deficiency. This condition can cause fatigue, bone pain, and muscle weakness. A normal vitamin D level is 20 to 50 ng/mL. If you have a low vitamin D level, your doctor may recommend that you take a supplement or get more sun exposure.

Muscle Health - Creatine kinase (CK)

Creatine kinase (CK) is an enzyme that's found in your muscles. CK levels can be checked with a blood test. A normal CK level is 10 to 200 IU/L. If your CK level is high, it may be a sign of muscle damage. Treatment for a high CK level depends on the underlying cause. If your CK level is high due to exercise, you may need to rest and avoid strenuous activity. If your CK level is high due to a medical condition, such as muscular dystrophy, treatment will focus on the underlying condition.

Additional Insight from Dr Sameer Nakedar, MBBS, MRCGP, PGCert

In this panel, you are checking lipid profile, liver function, creatinine and eGFr which is part of a kidney function screen, iron stores, vitamin D, B12 and C-reactive protein (CRP). CRP is an inflammatory marker and if levels are normal, it suggests that you don’t have any acute inflammatory disease, 

Having a healthy liver and adequate cholesterol levels reduce your risk of having other conditions such as developing cardiovascular disease (the increased likelihood of heart attacks or strokes), and in males erectile dysfunction. 

Optimising important vitamins and minerals can reduce your risk of having tiredness symptoms and keep you healthy.

Why it's important to check your health
