Top 5 benefits of an at home health assessment (blood test)

People of all ages will often refrain from seeing a healthcare professional until they’re feeling unwell or in need of a health check-up.

Whilst there’s no harm in doing this, it can be really beneficial to have regular health checks, even when you appear to be in good health.

Completing health assessments in the form of blood tests, can help give you a better understanding of your overall health and identify any potential changes.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve all become much more health conscious and completing at home tests has become the norm. So, additional, or regular health assessments such as at home blood tests, shouldn’t feel too alien. If you’re still unsure of the benefits of a health check, we’re outlining the top 5.

Identify any underlying conditions

Instead of waiting until you feel unwell, it makes more sense to find out if you could potentially become ill or if you’re tackling any underlying conditions without knowing.

You may have an underlying health concern that’s impacting your energy levels and overall ability to function, such as an over or under active thyroid, hormone imbalances, dietary deficiencies, or blood sugar issues.

Whilst this may sound daunting, it’s better to find out that you have a health condition as early as you possibly can, so you can focus on improving your health and seeking relevant treatments.

Take proactive, preventative actions

A health assessment will outline any potential conditions, such as Prediabetes. On finding out you have a condition or the potential to develop a condition, with the right support, you can take proactive, preventative actions to stop the condition or symptoms from worsening.

Make positive lifestyle changes

A health assessment is simple and easy and can ultimately enable you to make positive lifestyle changes that will benefit you on a day-to-day basis.

Your lifestyle changes as a result of your check, may also have a lasting positive impact on your friends and family. Lifestyle changes could result in increased energy and overall fitness levels, meaning you’re able to socialise and engage with your friends and family more often.

Ability to champion your health

A health assessment can help you gain a clear overview of both your physical and mental health, which means you’re also able to take ownership and create a plan to help either maintain or improve it.

Health Assessments can be done regularly from the comfort of your home plus, keeping on top of your health can help identify any important changes as they happen.

Extra peace of mind

On completing a health assessment and gaining the ability to champion your health, you can benefit from extra peace of mind, as you’ll have an overview of everything you need to know to support and improve your general health and wellbeing.
