Is this test for me?
Take the WellnessMan Test if you want to focus on your:
- Long Term Health
- Sexual Health
A hormone imbalance occurs when your hormones are not produced at the proper levels. There may be different types of hormonal imbalances. This could be manifested by a deficiency or an overflow in a certain hormone. This imbalance will play a major role in determining how the signs and symptoms will manifest and what would be the associated risks involved.
- High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol
HDL is often known as ‘good’ cholesterol as it removes other types of cholesterol from the blood vessels and transports them back to the liver. High levels of HDL are associated with a lower risk of developing cardiovascular complications.
Biomarkers Tested: Total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), total cholesterol:HDL ratio, HDL percentage
- Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol
LDL is often known as the ‘bad’ cholesterol. High levels of LDL can build up in your arteries, causing heart disease.
- Biomarkers Tested: Total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), non-HDL cholesterol
Triglycerides are a type of fat found in the blood. These are the most common type of fat in the body. Triglycerides are needed for metabolic health but in excess amounts, they may be harmful and may increase the risk of heart disease.
Testing your blood glucose levels is one of the best ways to understand your diabetes predisposition and understand how different foods, medications, and activities affect your glucose levels.
Glucose is the main type of sugar in the blood. In fact, it is key to keeping the mechanisms of the body in top working order. When your glucose levels are optimal, it often goes unnoticed. But when they stray from recommended boundaries, you will notice the unhealthy effects it has on normal functioning. Whilst glucose is important, it is best in moderation. This is because levels that are unhealthy or out of control may have permanent and serious effects.
- Haemoglobin A1C (hbA1c)
The term HbA1C refers to glycated haemoglobin. Briefly, it develops when haemoglobin, a protein within red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body, joins with glucose in the blood, becoming ‘glycated’. By measuring HbA1C, you will be able to get an overall picture of what your average blood sugars have been over a period of weeks/months.
Biomarker tested: HbA1c (Glycated Haemaglobin)
Measuring high-sensitive C-reactive protein and a full blood count will give you an insightful indication of the current inflammatory state of your body.
- High sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP)
C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein produced by the liver in response to inflammation. A high level of CRP in the blood is a marker of inflammation that can be caused by a wide variety of conditions, from infections to chronic conditions. For women taking birth control pills, CRP may be elevated. A hs-CRP test is more sensitive than a standard test and can also be used to evaluate your risk of developing coronary artery disease (narrowing of your arteries).
Biomarker Tested: High sensitivity C-reactive protein
- Red blood cells
- Mean corpuscular volume (MCV)
- Mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH)
- Mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC)
- Red cell distribution width (RDW)
- Mean platelet voulme (MPV)
- White blood cells
White blood cells (WBCs) help the body fight off infections from bacteria, viruses, and fungi. There are different types of WBCs, each with its own function. These include:
Neutrophils - act as your body's first line of defence to fight off infections
Lymphocytes - help produce antibodies, which recognise and fight foreign invaders. They include B-cells, T-cells, and natural killer cells
Monocytes - move out of the circulating blood into tissues where they mature into macrophages (cells that destroy bacteria and other harmful organisms)
Eosinophils - help fight against parasites, cancer cells, and allergens. A low number is not a concern, while a high number may be a sign of parasitic infections
Basophils - stimulate the release of chemicals to aid in the body’s immune response. A low number is not a concern, while a high number may be a sign of an active allergic reaction
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the benefit of taking the WellnessMan test?
The key biomarkers used in our test help establish potential causes of particular symptoms such as mood changes, low libido and energy level, all thoroughly discussed in the report you receive when you get your results. This test is beneficial for men of all ages, as it also includes readings of glucose and cholesterol.
