About the test
Our sports and fitness panel is designed to ensure that you are able to train and perform at your best. It allows you to understand your baseline physiological response to your training regime and target areas you may need to take action on to help improve your performance.
Repeat testing of these biomarkers will allow you to monitor your progress and improvement from your baseline over time. This is one of our most popular tests to have on subscription.
What do we test and why?
We test testosterone levels to ensure that your testosterone levels are adequate to support muscle development and maintain energy levels.
We check cortisol levels from which can ten calculate your testosterone:cortisol ratio. Trends in this ratio allow you to ensure that you are not overtraining.
We check thyroid function as thyroid dysfunction will impact on your performance and we check creatine kinase with CRP, which is the markers of muscle damage or inflammation.
We also check iron levels (ferritin), vitamin B12 levels, and vitamin D levels as these micronutrients are essential for peak performance.
Lastly we test blood sugar levels (HbA1c) and cholesterol levels as general markers of your state of health.
- LDL cholesterol
- Non-HDL cholesterol
- HDL cholesterol
- Total cholesterol
- Total cholesterol to HDL ratio
VITAMINS, IRON AND MUSCLES
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin B12
- Creatine Kinase (CK)
- C-Reactive Protein (CRP)
