Biomarker information for Sports Performance Advanced blood test

This blood test includes the biomarkers shown below along with information about each biomarker.
Full Blood Count – FBC

This is a test to check the types and numbers of cells in your blood, including red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. This can help give an indication of your general health, as well as provide important clues about certain health problems you may have.

Haemaglobin, HCT, RCC, MCV, MCH, MCHC, RDW, Platelet count, MPV, WCC.

This can affect or useful or:
Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate – ESR

An erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is a blood test that that can show if you have inflammation in your body. Inflammation is your immune system’s response to injury, infection, and many types of conditions, including immune system disorders, certain cancers, and blood disorders.

An ESR test can be used with other tests to help diagnose conditions that cause inflammation. It can also be used to help monitor these conditions. Many types of conditions cause inflammation, including arthritis, vasculitis, infection, and inflammatory bowel disease. An ESR may also be used to monitor an existing condition.

This can affect or useful or:
C-Reactive Protein (CRP)

C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is an inflammation marker used to assess whether there is inflammation in the body – it does not identify where the inflammation is located. When you suffer a serious injury or infection you experience significant inflammation around the site of injury – such as the swelling around a twisted ankle. Any injury like this will cause your CRP to rise.

This can affect or useful or:
Ferritin

Ferritin is a protein which stores iron in your cells and tissues. Usually, the body incorporates iron into haemoglobin to be transported around the body, but when it has a surplus, it stores the remaining iron in ferritin for later use. Measuring ferritin levels gives us a good indication of the amount of iron stored in your body.

This can affect or useful or:
Iron

Iron is a mineral that is essential for life. It is a component of haemoglobin, a protein in our red blood cells that is responsible for transporting oxygen around our body. If we don’t have enough iron, our haemoglobin levels fall and we can’t get sufficient oxygen to our cells. This can cause symptoms which include fatigue, dizziness, and shortness of breath. Serum iron is a very transient reading and can be influenced by the amount of iron-rich food in your diet in the days before your blood test. For this reason, iron is rarely looked at on its own, and is interpreted alongside other markers in an iron status test. 

This can affect or useful or:
Cholesterol

Cholesterol is an essential fat (lipid) in the body. It has some important functions, including building cell membranes and producing a number of essential hormones such as testosterone and oestradiol. There are a number of different types of cholesterol, but the two main components of total cholesterol are HDL (high density lipoprotein) -“Good” and LDL (low density lipoprotein)- “Bad”.
The total cholesterol result on its own only shows the total amount of both of these components and so even if you have a good amount of total cholesterol, you may have a low amount of good cholesterol and high amount of bad cholesterol therefore its important to review each of these results to understand your cardiovascular health and risks of cardiovascular disease.

This can affect or useful or:
HDL Cholesterol

HDL cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein) is a molecule in the body which removes cholesterol from the bloodstream and transports it to the liver where it is broken down and removed from the body in bile. HDL cholesterol is commonly known as ‘good cholesterol’.

This can affect or useful or:
LDL Cholesterol

LDL cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein) is a molecule made of lipids and proteins which transports cholesterol, triglycerides and other fats to various tissues throughout the body. Too much LDL cholesterol, commonly called ‘bad cholesterol’, can cause fatty deposits to accumulate inside artery walls, potentially leading to atherosclerosis and heart disease.

This can affect or useful or:
Calcium

Calcium is an important mineral that we need. This test measures the level of calcium in your blood. The vast majority of calcium in your body is stored in bone. The rest is in your blood.

This can affect or useful or:
Phosphate

Phosphate tests are very useful for measuring phosphate levels in people with malnutrition (where their diet doesn’t contain the right amount of nutrients to meet their body’s demands). A phosphate test can also be used to check for a condition called ketoacidosis, which sometimes affects people with diabetes.

This can affect or useful or:
Uric Acid

Uric acid is a waste product produced from the breakdown of chemical compounds called purines. Purine occurs naturally in the body, but it is also found in the food we eat – and in some foods more than others.

This can affect or useful or:
Creatinine Kinase (CK)

Creatine kinase (CK) is an important enzyme in tissues that have a fast metabolism, including muscle tissue.

This can affect or useful or:
Omega 3 and 6 (Essential Fatty Acids)

Omega 6 and omega 3 are essential fatty acids in the body responsible for controlling inflammation, brain development and regulating blood pressure. Omega 6 is thought to have a pro-inflammatory role in the body while omega 3 is thought to have an anti-inflammatory role. The ideal ratio is thought to be around 2:1 .

This can affect or useful or:
Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is important for production of red blood cells which carry oxygen around the body. B12 is also involved in metabolism and the nervous system and prolonged lack of vitamin B12 may cause nerve damage.

This can affect or useful or:
Folate (Vitamin B9)

Folate is a B vitamin which acts as a coenzyme in the metabolism of amino acids. Folate is also especially important during the first trimester of pregnancy so if you are thinking of becoming pregnant it is important to make sure your folate levels are normal.

This can affect or useful or:

What does the Sports Performance Advanced blood test involve?

This blood test is just like a standard blood test.

You will be asked to uncover you left or right arm and suitable vein is found. A tourniquet will be placed and tightened around your upper arm allowing the veins to swell and a needle will be placed into your vein. A small quantity of blood is then drawn into tubes. Once the procedure is complete a small plaster will be placed onto the site which can be removed after a few hours.

How do I prepare

  • The blood test requires access to the area of interest, therefore, it is recommended to wear loose clothing to facilitate this process.
  • No specific preparation is required for this scan.

I have used the this clinic at the recommendation of my friend who had a positive experience. I... have used this clinic looking for reassurance before my gallbladder removal operation. The appointment was quickly booked for the next day to suit my needs. The scan was performed by a very well spoken, professional person. The whole experience was very positive, as expected from a private clinic. From the experience I have had, I can highly recommend this clinic.read more

I've been to this clinic 4 times over the past 7 years for both pregnancy scans and health scans.... What sterling services they consistently provide! Booking is always easy either online or over the phone, minimum waiting time, and calming environment. What's most impressive is that Mr Usman always explained the scan results thoroughly in a calm and professional way on site and in a report, and quickly spotted issues that both my hospital scan and community clinic scan completely missed (the sonographer at the hospital even asked where I did my scan as she was impressed)! This helped me eventually get timely referral and free from lots of stress. I always feel being well looked after by the team and will wholehearted recommend them to anyone who is looking for efficient, caring and professional help.read more
