The Importance of Health Testing

The Importance of Health Testing

Checking the status of your health is vital. You could prevent the risk of disease if you notice something different in your body at the earliest possible stage.

Local GPs and medical care facilities generally administer health testing and screening appointments when you're ready to have a check-up. Depending on the medical conditions you're concerned about, a doctor can take a urine or blood sample to find out key information about what's going on in your body.

However, although your GP can provide you with screening, they may not be able to book you in as quickly as you like due to increased demand in the health sector.

So to avoid the long waiting times, you can order an at-home testing kit from us at We Are Healthier.

Our team wants to make your health testing process as streamlined as possible, so we highlighted some benefits of at-home health tests and how you can monitor your health effectively.

The Advantages of at-home Health Testing

You can choose from an impressive range of testing kits to administer yourself. Some of these diagnostic tests will ask for a blood sample, like our:

  • Iron deficiency test. This is more common in women who may feel sluggish and have low energy, which could indicate signs of anaemia.
  • The thyroid test is also more suited to women. It looks at the possibility of your thyroid hormone underperforming.
  • Vitamin D check test aims to prevent more serious health conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.

These blood sample kits allow you to have what health professionals may not provide, like the comfort of being at home.

You'll be able to take the sample when you feel ready, and you won't need to give as much blood as you would when at the doctor's office, as they tend to do a range of screening tests with a larger blood sample.

Additionally, our team also focus on urine samples for tests, including:

  • Menopause tests detect the (FSH) follicle-stimulating hormone in the body and look for early signs of menopause.
  • It can also be used for other ovarian tests, like PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and any slowing down of the reproductive organs.

Get Instant Results

When you order the health testing kits from our website, you should receive them within 1 to 3 working days. You can then follow the instructions, administer the sample and send the kits back to our labs. There, our technicians will check to see whether your blood or urine levels show an increase in signs for short or long-term conditions.

Many patients prefer to do health tests for themselves at home. For example, they may want a second opinion on some results they had previously received, and with at-home additional testing, this is ideal.

So if you notice changes in your body and wish to discover if those symptoms could lead to any health conditions, try our globally recognised at-home health testing kits. We Are Healthier delivers fast results, informed decisions and streamlined information about your health status.
