Well man check

Men's health checks

In the past, some men didn’t always go to the doctors as often as they should. However, that's changed in recent years and men are much more likely to be aware of their health and well-being. At Health Klinix, we want you to lead fitter, healthier and happier lives and believe a well man check is the first step towards this ethos. Our health checks can detect diseases in their early stages to help you stay healthy for longer.

What's included in a well man blood test?

Your haemoglobin levels are checked as this is important in making sure your blood is able to carry sufficient oxygen around the body. This check also includes your white cell count to identify any infection.

B12 and folate (also called folic acid) are important vitamins making sure that your cells work as they should. They're also important in the formation of your red blood cells and as well helping repair DNA. B12 is also responsible for your nervous system to work as it should. Iron helps form haemoglobin in your red blood cells and carries oxygen around your body.

This important vitamin is mainly produced by the skin when it's exposed to sunlight but can also be obtained in your diet from foods rich in vitamin D, such as eggs and oily fish. Vitamin D is important for maintaining healthy bones and an effective immune system.

Here we test Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), and thyroxine (free T4). TSH is produced by the pituitary gland, a peas sized gland at the base of your brain. It controls the release of thyroxine which is produced by the thyroid gland, a walnut shaped gland situated in the front of your neck. Thyroxine is an important hormone in controlling how well your body works. It also helps your heart and muscles work more effectively.

Calcium and phosphate are important in keeping your bones and teeth healthy.

A HBA1c test is a check for diabetes that reflects your blood sugar level control over the last 2-3 months. Diabetes is usually caused by a lack of insulin or if the insulin you produce is not working sufficiently. This can lead to a high blood sugar level which can cause damage to your organs like the kidney and the heart.

This is a measure of your kidney function. Your kidney function can deteriorate without obvious symptoms until the later stages, so it’s good to get it checked.

Urea and electrolytes

The liver is a major organ that removes toxins from your body. It's also important for producing blood proteins and helps the immune system.

Liver function

  • Creatine Kinase (CK)

    This is a protein released by your muscles and can be elevated in muscle disease or inflammation.

    Uric acid

    A high uric acid level in your blood is associated with gout - when uric acid crystals are deposited in your joints it can cause gout, causing pain and inflammation.

    C-reactive protein (CRP)

    CRP is protein produced in excess by your liver during an infection or inflammation. This helps us to detect diseases in their early stages.

    Cholesterol test 

    This is a serum cholesterol level and a full lipid profile test. High cholesterol levels are linked to heart disease and stroke disease.

    Testosterone blood tests

    We’ll check your blood testosterone levels. Testosterone levels are important in the development of masculine features in a male and regulating sexual drive in a woman. 

    Prostatic Specific Antigen (PSA)

    PSA levels in your blood can be elevated in prostate cancer. The normal PSA level is usually less than 4ng/ml.  If your PSA is between 4-10 ng/ml, we can check the PSA ratio (free PSA divided by the total PSA) . If this PSA ratio is low then prostate cancer might be one possible cause and you might need a prostate biopsy. If it’s high, your specialist might decide to simply monitor the PSA rather than do a biopsy.

  • No, you don’t need to bring anything with you to have your health check.

  • No, this is a fasting blood test which means that you shouldn't eat or drink anything except water for 8 hours before the test. So, we recommend booking an early morning appointment for your well man health check.

  • Our blood results usually take 1 - 3 working days and you can access them online from our secure portal.

  • Any results outside the normal range are reviewed by our doctors and shared with you through our secure online portal.
