Check your risk of developing metabolic diseases
Why would you benefit from a Metabolic Health Check?
The high prevalence of metabolic conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol, and chronic inflammation relates to a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Many of these risk factors can be reversed and prevented. This blood test will give you insight into how you are doing across these risk factors, and highlight any areas where you could improve.
What biomarkers are we looking at?
• Cholesterol (LIPP)
• HbA1c (diabetes risk) ( GHB)
• Creatinine (CREA)

Frequently Asked Question
Do I need to prepare?
This is a fasting test, you should not eat or drink (other than water – water is fine, please keep hydrated!) for 8 hours before the test. If this is not possible please let the nurse know and your results can be interpreted accordingly.
We suggest keeping your arm warm, as being cold can sometimes make it harder to draw your blood.
If blood tests make you anxious, let your nurse know at the start of your appointment. They will do their best to make the experience as stress-free as possible.
Is there an age limit for the test?
Superdrug blood tests are available for patients aged 18 years and older.
