Over 40, natural hormonal changes and age can affect our health in many ways. Specifically we're at higher risk of

  • Osteoporosis (weak bones)
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid disease

We've designed this blood test panel in partnership with Balanced Being specifically for women over the age of 40 to look at key blood markers related to these conditions. The Balanced Being Blood Test panel gives you insight into your personal risk profile and what you can do to optimise it.

What's tested in your Balanced Being Blood Test for Women Over 40?

  • Thyroid health

    Thyroid problems are more common in women and become commoner as you get older so it's important to check your thyroid function from time-to-time. Thyroid health also influences your risk of heart disease and osteoporosis.

    WHAT'S MEASURED?

  • Vitamin D

    Bone density decreases after the menopause which can lead osteoporosis. Vitamin D is essential for bone health and ensuring your levels are optimum can lower your risk of osteoporosis.

    WHAT'S MEASURED?

  • Sugar-handling

    After the menopause, your body can't handle sugar as well as it used to which increases your risk of diabetes. HbA1c is a measure of your blood sugar control over the last 3 months.

    WHAT'S MEASURED?

  • Cholesterol profile

    Cholesterol levels tend to go up with age and they're the biggest driver of heart disease. Ensuring your levels are optimal is key to minimise your cardiovascular risk.

    WHAT'S MEASURED?

  • Inflammation

    High sensitivity CRP is an accurate way to measure the levels of inflammation in the blood. Inflammation can contribute to the development of heart disease.
