THE SURESLIM BLOOD TEST
SURESLIM BLOOD TEST
Overeating may not be the problem so with SureSlim you can have a blood test i.e. a General Health Screen which looks at you as an individual and will help us tailor an eating plan that guarantees your weight loss whilst improving your overall health and wellbeing.
*General Health Screen:
- Lipids (Cholesterol, Triglycerides, HDL and LDL)
- Liver Function
- Kidney Function
- Thyroid Function
Blood tests help establish certain values to tailor your plan. E.g. for raised Uric Acid purine rich foods are removed or restricted. For elevated total cholesterol the diet aims to reduce fats, especially from non-vegetarian sources and those high in saturated fats. Similarly other tests such as Glucose and Thyroid contribute to the overall picture.
In some instances such as thyroid problems or diabetes the results will need to be brought to the attention of your GP as they may require additional investigation or treatment.
*Our General Screen can be upgraded to a Full Blood Count which for other things such as anaemia and inflammation markers. Should you require these additional tests please discuss with your consultant who will provide you with options and costs.
