Home Health Tests
Taking a home health test
Taking a home health test is easier than ever. Collect a small blood, saliva, urine or breathing gas sample easily at home and have it analysed by modern medical laboratories. With home health tests you can, for example, have your vitamin supply determined using our vitamin deficiency tests. You can also detect a mineral or nutrient deficiency at an early stage and correctly interpret physical symptoms using hormone tests, allergy tests or intolerance tests.
The laboratories that evaluate such home health tests are often the same as those that perform analyses for medical surgeries and other medical institutions. In some cases, they are also active in research and involved in the development of innovative testing methods. The big difference is that with a home health test you decide when and where you want to perform it - without having to wait or make appointments.
Home health test kits from cerascreen®
For the cerascreen® home health tests, you simply collect a small sample at home or on the move using the test kit we provide you with. The type of sample depends on the test you wish to take: either a few drops of blood from your fingertip, a saliva sample (by using a straw or cotton pad), a urine sample or a breathing gas sample will be required. Do not worry: Blood tests only require a very small sample amount. Instead of a syringe to collect the blood sample, just a small prick in the finger is needed.
After the sample collection, mail-in the sample to a certified medical laboratory by using the provided free return envelope. The medical laboratory will analyse your sample for the desired parameters. Following the analysis, you will receive a detailed results report which provides you with your results, classifies them and offers individual recommendations for action, based on your result.
What can I measure with home health testing kits?
The cerascreen® home health testing kits include the Vitamin D Blood Test and the Vitamin B12 Test - both are important vitamins many people are not sufficiently supplied with. The mineral deficiency test checks the concentration of the minerals zinc, magnesium and selenium, which are, among other things, important for muscle building and the immune system. Another important nutrient level that can be determined with the home health test kits is the fatty acid Omega 3. There are also tests for iron deficiency and iodine deficiency. You can also determine cholesterol levels, which can be a biomarker for cardiovascular health, and long-term blood sugar HbA1c, which can be used to assess the risk of diabetes. A new addition is the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Antibody Test, which uses the meaningful measurement of IgG antibodies. From this covid antibody analysis, it is possible to conclude that a SARS-CoV-2 infection has already subsided, but also that a SARS-CoV-2 infection occurred some time ago. In contrast, IgM and IgA antibodies seem to be detectable only for a very short period of time.
