About the test

What is the Preventive Health Check Test?

This test comes in two forms, depending on how much information you’d like to gain on your health. The Basic Preventive Health Check Test measures your blood sugar, cholesterol and lipid levels, and kidney & liver function. The Extensive Preventive Health Check Test measures blood sugar, cholesterol and lipid levels, kidney & liver function, thyroid function, key vitamin levels (Folic Acid, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12), and iron (ferritin) levels. The test is a finger prick test that you can easily take from home. Your sample will then be examined by a certified laboratory and you will receive the results within a matter of days. It couldn’t be easier!

What’s in the test?

Homed-IQ’s Preventive Health Check Test comes with everything you need to take a blood sample from home. Simply activate your test and follow the detailed instructions included in your kit to prepare your sample, then mail it to our laboratory using the prepaid shipping label. Results will be available within days.

Please note, you must fast before taking this blood sample, meaning that you do not eat anything from 11 p.m. the previous day. Drinking water, tea or coffee without sugar is allowed. Therefore, it is best to collect the blood sample for this test before breakfast.

As the Preventive Health Check includes several different blood tests, two blood samples are required.

Your kit contains the following (can use the images from the test manuals):

  • 3 x lancets
  • 2x blood collection tubes (1x Serum tube, 1x EDTA tube)
  • 4x alcohol wipes
  • 2x band aids
  • 2x alcohol-free disinfecting wipes
  • 1x return envelope
  • 1x protective bag with absorbent material

What can the results of the Preventive Health Check test tell you?

Your results will give you information about your risk of lifestyle-related disease as well as vitamin and mineral markers related to immunity and bone health. You will receive a detailed report with your test results and what steps you can take to improve your overall health status. We also have medical support staff available to answer your health-related questions.

How can I collect my own sample for the Preventive Health Check Test?

This is a finger prick test that allows you to collect your sample from home. In order for the laboratory to have sufficient sample material to analyze, you will be asked to fill two microtainers with blood.

You must fast before collecting your blood sample for accurate results. Fasting means that you do not eat anything after 11 p.m. the previous day. Drinking water, tea or coffee without sugar is allowed. Therefore, it is best to collect the blood sample for this test before breakfast.

What is the difference between the Basic and Extensive Preventive Health Check Tests?

The Basic Preventive Health Check Test provides a useful overview of important biomarkers related to overall health, in the areas of blood sugar, cholesterol and liver and kidney function. For those that want to learn even more about their health, the Extensive PreventiveHealth Check Test provides the most comprehensive look with the addition of key vitamin levels, thyroid function and iron.

Summary of Biomarkers & Results

1. Blood Sugar

HbA1C
This test result gives an indication of your average blood sugar level over the past three months. 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.

2. Cholesterol and Lipids

Cholesterol
Cholesterol is produced in the liver and is found in every cell of the body. The body uses cholesterol as a building block for cells and hormones and for the production of bile. There are two types of cholesterol: one in the form of HDL (high-density cholesterol) and LDL (low-density cholesterol). HDL is also referred to as the ‘good’ cholesterol and LDL is known as the ‘bad’ cholesterol. 

HDL
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 attack and stroke. Lifestyle changes such as increasing exercise, quitting smoking, and improving one’s diet have been seen to increase HDL.

LDL
Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) transports cholesterol throughout the body, creating the risk that cholesterol builds up in the arteries and can cause cardiovascular disease. Elevated LDL can indicate an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

HDL % of total cholesterol
The percentage of total cholesterol refers to the amount of HDL (= “good” cholesterol) in the body that can fight the LDL (= “bad” cholesterol). The higher the percentage of total cholesterol is HDL, the better.

Triglycerides
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.

3. Liver Function

Your liver is an organ with many important functions. Some of its functions are that it removes wastes and toxins from your blood, produces bile which aids in food digestion, produces cholesterol and other fat-carrying proteins for the rest of the body, processes hemoglobin, regulates blood clotting, and converts excess glucose to glycogen for storage.

ALAT
Alanine aminotransferase (ALAT) are enzymes found primarily in the liver. Generally, ALAT levels in the blood are low. However, damage to the liver can cause these enzymes to leak from the liver into the bloodstream, elevating blood liver enzyme levels. The same is true for GammaGT. High levels of GammaGT in the blood can be a sign of liver or bile duct damage.

GammaGT (GGT)
Gamma-glutamyltransferase (Gamma-GT or GGT) is an enzyme made in the liver that helps convert and digest substances that enter the body through food and drink. Normally the concentration of GGT in the blood is very low but can become elevated when the liver is overloaded. This happens when the liver must process a high quantity of certain substances in a short period of time, for example with excessive use of certain medications or alcohol. GGT values will also rise when the bile ducts are blocked, with gallbladder problems, or as a result of liver damage. 

Creatinine & eGFR
A creatinine test can indicate how well the kidneys are functioning. The kidneys are organs that filter waste products from the blood. Creatinine is a waste product from the muscles. All waste products are stored in the bladder until you excrete them. If you have an elevated creatinine level, this may be a sign that the kidneys are damaged or not functioning properly. An elevated creatinine level can be caused by inflammation of the kidneys, a kidney-related bacterial infection, an enlargement of the prostate, or kidney stones. Diabetes, dehydration, or excessive use of medication can also be a cause.

A low creatinine value is usually not alarming and is usually caused by a decrease in muscle mass which often comes with age. The eGFR provides information about the kidney’s ability to purify the blood and remove waste products through urine.

4. Thyroid Function

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is produced in the pituitary gland in the brain. TSH regulates the production of hormones T3 and T4 by the thyroid gland. Either too much or too little TSH can indicate problems with the thyroid, such as hyper or hypothyroidism. 

5. Vitamin Levels

This test measures the Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, and Folic Acid levels in your blood. Based on the test result, it can be determined whether there are abnormal levels of one of the above vitamins. This can indicate that changes in diet or supplements are needed.

6. Iron

Ferritin
Ferritin is a protein that stores iron in your body. The amount of ferritin in your blood indicates the amount of iron in your body. A low ferritin value can indicate anemia.

Frequently Asked Questions

Preventive health checks can help to lower certain health risks before they develop into disease, or indicate 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 treatment and intervention (Source).

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.

The results of this blood test in combination with your response to the health questionnaire can be used in discussions with your healthcare provider about potential health problems you may be experiencing that need further testing or investigation.

I am very positive about the diabetes test I bought from Homed-IQ! The actual testing process is easy and the doctor's result was clear. A great solution for me. I think everyone should have access to tests like the diabetes test, because it gives a lot of information. Homed-IQ makes that possible!

Overall experience was excellent. But the processing time was a bit long, maybe it was because I only ordered late Friday evening. The rest of the process went well.

The test was delivered within a day and I thought it was all easy to do, activating the test could perhaps be a little easier. At least I didn't have to go to the doctor or take a day off from work to get my blood checked or come back to a doctor's office for the results! It's quick and easy.

Shipping is very fast and the purchase process is well described in the supplied manual. It took me a maximum of five minutes to do. I knew it would be difficult for me to get to the doctor, especially because of COVID-19, so this was a lifesaver. It took 4 days to receive my results.
