Feeling tired all the time can really stop you living your life to the fullest. Often low energy is caused by the stresses and strains of daily life, but other times it can be a sign that something’s not quite right with your body. Our Tiredness and Low Energy Blood Test panel includes blood tests for the common causes of low energy and fatigue such as:
Whether we pick up a specific problem or rule out the major medical causes of tiredness, you’ve taken a key step to getting on top of your tiredness and fatigue.
Thyroid disease is one of the commonest autoimmune conditions in the UK and tiredness can be the only symptom.
Problems with your kidneys will cause tiredness as your body can't filter waste from your blood as well as it should.
Tiredness is often an early sign of vitamin deficiency. You're at higher risk of vitamin deficiency if you're on a vegan or plant-based diet and all of us are at high risk of vitamin D deficiency in the UK.
Iron deficiency is probably the commonest medical cause of tiredness. Fortunately, it's simple to test for and easy to fix.
Inflammation in your body will make you feel tired and wiped out. You may also have other symptoms in your gut or joints.
Collect your sample at home or visit a clinic.
Use the included envelope to post your sample back to our UKAS-accredited lab (The Doctors Laboratory) for analysis.
We'll deliver your results to your dashboard. Every result is explained so you're in control.
You can also track your results over time.
Our experts will give you a report so you'll know what your results mean.
We'll highlight how you can use your results to understand symptoms, pick up health problems early and take action.
Please get in touch if you have any other questions about our tests.
This test panel can tell you if you have markers in the blood of a number of important and/or common conditions that can cause tiredness and fatigue. Positive results can indicate a disease that may require treatment. Negative results make it much less likely that you have a disease causing your symptoms and that you may benefit more from changes to your lifestyle involving sleep, diet and exercise.
We do not recommend using this test panel if you:
If you already have a known medical condition that affects your energy then this test kit may not be useful.
If you're not sure if you should use this test panel, please contact us for advice.
Your results will be reviewed by one of our doctors. They will write a report explaining what your results mean for you. They will also tell you if there are any specific actions you should take, like seeing a healthcare professional, considering further tests or making changes to your lifestyle.
