Who is the Optimal Health Blood Test panel best for?

The Optimal Health blood test panel is for all people who want to understand the factors which might be affecting their current and long-term health and where they should be focusing their attentions in order to improve health, or continue to remain healthy into older age.

What makes the My Vital Metrics Optimal Health Blood Test unique?

Unlike most clinics or GPs, we go beyond the numbers. Once we have the results of your blood panel, you’ll receive a full report detailing your results, including comments from a GP. Then, you’ll be invited for a 30 minute 1-on-1 call with our registered nutritionist.

In this call, the nutritionist will walk you through your blood test results and contextualise these in relation to your lifestyle and specific circumstances. This will form the basis of personalised recommendations for which results you may want to prioritise, and which are not a concern based on your lifestyle.

All the biomarkers for each of the blood tests

Unique results from the Optimal Health Blood Test 

Advanced Cholesterol Metrics

Increasingly, Doctors interested in Longevity and cardiovascular health have been turning away from the standard lipid panel to find biomarkers which are better predictors of long term cardiovascular health. The result has been key factors such as ApoB and Lipoprotein(a) and some others, all of which will test more specific aspects of how CV health changes as we age. These measures have been advocated by the likes of Dr Peter Attia amongst others.

Inflammation

The role of inflammation as it pertains to healthy ageing is still an area which is attracting a great deal of interest and study. There is a general acceptance however that ageing seems to move more slowly in lower inflammatory environments.
