What can I expect from this Window Health Check?

Open a window into your health with a London Medical Laboratory Health Check. 
The findings from a health check will give you information about your risks of having, or developing, a range of common health problems.

This health check covers:

● Blood test

● Body Mass Index

● Weight

● Blood pressure

● Depression

● Anxiety

● Height

● Waist circumference

● Alcohol

● Smoking

Detecting Problems

A Health Check may find health problems you do not already know about or give you a view of your risks of developing them in the future. Catching a problem early is vital. Knowing your risk factors is essential. With this window into your health, you can make the lifestyle changes, or get the treatment you need, to dramatically change the course of many health problems. We want you to feel empowered and informed so that you can live the best life that you can.

Low Risk Result

A low-risk finding is reassuring but does not mean you will never develop a condition, which is why regular health checks are recommended.

High Risk Result

A high-risk finding is rightly going to cause concern but it does not necessarily confirm that a condition is present and further investigations need to be carried out by a healthcare professional to establish a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Stay Informed

Catching health issues early may make treatment more effective, but it's worth noting that Health Checks results may lead to difficult decisions on whether or not to pursue further tests or treatment. If you are having concerns about whether a Health Check is right for you, we recommend that you talk to your GP.

In Good Hands

Following your health check, our doctors review all the information you have shared with us, the investigations we carry out, and the results of your blood tests. You will receive a full report on every aspect explored in your health check. This report will include a range of advice on relevant lifestyle changes and will advise you to see your doctor for further review if there are high-risk findings. We encourage you to discuss your results with your doctor or healthcare professional.

Identifying conditions of this test

Cholesterol (7 Biomarkers)

High cholesterol levels can cause your arteries to become blocked - leading to coronary heart disease, heart attack or stroke. Finding out about high levels of cholesterol can help you to make the positive lifestyle and dietary changes needed to improve your chances of a long and healthy life.

Total Cholesterol

Total Cholesterol is a measurement of the total amount of cholesterol in the blood. This includes low-density and high-density lipoprotein cholesterols. Cholesterol is used to produce hormones for development, growth and reproduction.

High Density Lipoprotein (HDL)

High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) is a form of cholesterol which is considered ‘good’ cholesterol because it helps remove cholesterol from the heart’s arteries.

Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL)

Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) is considered ‘bad’ cholesterol because it contributes to cholesterol build-up and blockage in the arteries.

Total Cholesterol: HDL Ratio

Total Cholesterol: HDL Ratio is a mathematical calculation which indicates the ratio of total cholesterol versus ‘good’ (HDL) cholesterol in the blood.

Non-HDL Cholesterol

Non-HDL Cholesterol is a measurement of the total amount of cholesterol in the blood excluding the ‘good’ high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL).


Triglyceride is another type of fat (not the same as cholesterol) found in the bloodstream.

HDL percentage

This is the percentage of Total Cholesterol that consists of ‘good’ (HDL) cholesterol.

Diabetes (1 Biomarkers)

Checking your levels of HbA1c is a way of confirming if you have (or are at risk of developing) diabetes. Unmanaged or undiagnosed diabetes is one of the leading causes of mortality. For anyone who already knows they have diabetes, regular HbA1c checks are essential to monitor progress.

HbA1c (Glycosylated Haemoglobin)

Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test is used to measure the average level of blood sugar over the past two to three months and is commonly used to diagnose and monitor diabetes. The sugar is called glucose which builds up in the blood and binds to the haemoglobin in the red blood cells.

Kidney Function (3 Biomarkers)

Your kidneys play a vital role in keeping your body functioning including the removal of waste products, releasing hormones to regulate blood pressure and controlling the production of red blood cells. A healthy kidney function is vital to your overall health and wellbeing.


Urea is a waste product of the amino acids found in proteins. It is released into the bloodstream and the kidney filters urea out of the blood and excretes it in the urine. Urea tests are used to show how well the kidneys are working as well as an indicator for diseases affecting the kidneys and liver.


Creatinine is a waste product produced by the muscles during contraction. It can be found in the blood and urine as it is excreted by the kidneys. Creatinine tests are used as an indicator of whether the kidneys are working normally.

Glomerular Filtration Rate

Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) is a measurement of glomerular function. Glomeruli are the filters in the kidney used to filter waste products from the blood. GFR tests are used to detect and monitor changes in the kidney status.

Liver Function (8 Biomarkers)

The liver is responsible for many of the body's essential functions such as regulating blood sugar levels, fighting infections and detoxifying your blood. Good liver function is vital to your overall health and wellbeing.


Albumin is a protein specifically produced in the liver. Its function consists of keeping fluids in the bloodstream as well as transporting substances like hormones and vitamins throughout the body. Albumin tests can be used to help diagnose and monitor diseases of the liver and kidney.


Globulin is a protein produced in the liver by the immune system. It is important in liver function, blood clotting and fighting infections. Globulin tests can be used to diagnose conditions including liver damage or disease, kidney disease and autoimmune disorders.

Total Protein

Total Protein is the total amount of two proteins found in the serum of the blood, these are albumin and globulin. Albumin is needed to keep fluid in the bloodstream whereas globulin is an essential part of the immune system. Total protein tests are used as an indicator to there being a problem with albumin or globulin levels.

Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)

Alkaline Phosphate (ALP) is an enzyme found mostly in the liver and bone. ALP tests can be used to diagnose liver or bone disease.

Alanine Transaminase (ALT)

Alanine Transaminase (ALT) is an enzyme which can be found mostly in the liver and in small amounts in the heart, kidneys and the skeletal muscle. It is released into the bloodstream during an injury to the heart, liver, kidney and skeletal muscle. ALT tests can be used to diagnose liver disease.

Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST)

Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) is an enzyme produced by the liver. It is released into the bloodstream during an injury of the heart, liver and skeletal muscle. AST tests can be used to detect liver disease.

Gamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT)

Gamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) is an enzyme mostly found in the liver and is also present in the gallbladder, spleen, pancreas and kidney. It is a significant enzyme used in the liver metabolism of drugs and other toxins. GGT tests can be used to detect liver disease and bile duct injury.

Total Bilirubin

Total Bilirubin is a test which measures the amount of bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin can be found in bile to help digest food. It is also produced from broken down haem, which is old red blood cells that used to carry oxygen around the body. Total bilirubin tests can be used to diagnose and monitor liver diseases and certain types of anaemia.
