Summary of Biomarkers
Cholesterol and Lipids
Cholesterol is a waxy substance produced in the liver and found in every cell of the body. The body uses cholesterol as a building block for cells and hormones, as well as for the production of bile. There are two types of cholesterol: HDL (high-density lipoprotein) and LDL (low-density lipoprotein). HDL is also referred to as the ‘good’ cholesterol and LDL is known as the ‘bad’ cholesterol.
High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) is also known as the “good” cholesterol because it transports excess bad cholesterol to your liver to clear it. Higher HDL levels are associated with a lower risk of heart disease and stroke.
Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) transports cholesterol throughout the body. When the body has too much LDL cholesterol, it can builds up in the walls of the blood vessels, causing heart disease and stroke. High LDL is associated with an increased risk of heart disease.
HDL % of total cholesterol
The percentage of total cholesterol refers to the amount of HDL (= “good” cholesterol) in the body compared to LDL (= “bad” cholesterol). The higher the percentage of total cholesterol is HDL, the better.
Triglycerides are the most common types of fats in the body. Excess calories, alcohol and sugars are converted into triglycerides and stored in the body as fat. An elevated triglyceride level increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.
HbA1C measures the percentage of blood sugar attached to hemoglobin, the blood protein that carries oxygen. The higher the percentage, the higher your blood sugar. This test measures average blood sugar level over the past three months. High blood sugar level can be linked to Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes.

This test measures the level of Vitamin D in your blood. Vitamin D deficiency is common and many people may have it without knowing it, leading to non-specific symptoms of fatigue and low mood. Learning your vitamin D level can indicate whether changes in diet or supplements are needed to maintain a healthy value.
Vitamin B12 is essential for nerve function, cell metabolism, and red blood cell production. A vitamin B12 deficiency can cause nerve damage, but can have no symptoms until the deficiency is severe. This test checks the level of total B12 in your blood.

How often should you do a general health check?
While opinions vary, routine physical exams are generally recommended once a year if you’re over the age of 50, and once every 3 years if you’re younger than 50 and in good health. If you have a chronic disease or other ongoing health issues, you should see your doctor more often, no matter how old you are.
Early detection and treatment of potential illnesses will help you maintain a healthy mind, body and quality of life.
Why are regular preventive health screening tests important?
Preventive health screening tests can help identify health risks before they develop into disease, or reveal health issues before symptoms become apparent. This can improve the chances of treatment and cure. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the leading causes of poor health and death in Western Europe are preventable or can be delayed by early intervention (Source).
