HbA1c reflects the average blood sugar level over the last two to three months. Monitoring blood HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin) levels helps to control long-term blood glucose status and, if necessary, make necessary lifestyle adjustments to prevent the onset or progression of diabetes.
Cholesterol is a fat-like substance found in the blood that is essential for the normal functioning of the body. It is the sum of HDL ("good") cholesterol and LDL ("bad") cholesterol in the blood, which can build up in the arteries and increase the risk of heart disease.
HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol is often known as the "good" cholesterol. It helps transport cholesterol away from the blood, returning it to the liver, which keeps arteries clear and blood flowing smoothly. Higher levels of HDL cholesterol are desirable for maintaining good heart health.
LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol, often called "bad" cholesterol, can build up in your arteries, reducing blood flow and potentially leading to heart attacks or strokes. Managing your LDL cholesterol levels is essential for safeguarding your heart and overall health.
ALT (alanine aminotransferase) is an enzyme produced in liver cells that helps break down protein and convert it into energy. When liver cells are damaged, ALT is released into the bloodstream. Elevated ALT levels in the blood can indicate inflammation or liver damage, allowing for early treatment.
TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is a hormone produced in the brain that regulates the production of thyroid hormones. Thyroid hormones play a vital role in controlling the body's metabolism. Abnormal TSH levels indicate a thyroid disorder such as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.
Anti-TPO (Anti-Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies) are immune system-produced antibodies specifically targeting the thyroid gland's enzyme TPO. When these antibody levels are elevated, it indicates the potential presence of autoimmune thyroid disorders.

Frequently asked questions
Who is the test suitable for?
This test is a good tool for regular assessment of your overall health. The profile of values monitored has been designed with a special emphasis on women's health.
It is important to note that specific recommendations for testing may vary depending on medical history, risk factors, and healthcare provider assessment.
When will I get my results?
Results will be displayed on the Macromo mobile app within five business days of when we receive your sample.
Is the blood draw painful?
It is not. The blood draw is performed via a tiny puncture of an automated lancet into the belly of the finger, from which the blood is then collected into a tube. The puncture site may be slightly sensitive after the collection.
What if I fail to draw blood?
If you fail to collect enough blood, the sample cannot be tested and you will need to repeat the collection. In this case, please contact us and we will send you a new collection kit free of charge.
How quickly do I need to get the sample to the lab?
Once you have taken a blood sample at home, it is important to send it to the laboratory as soon as possible. Ideally, this should be done within 24 hours of collection. Biological material can begin to degrade over time, which can affect the accuracy of the test. Therefore, it is important to follow the instructions for the use of the kit carefully and deliver the sample to the laboratory promptly using prepaid shipping from PPL.
To avoid shipping complications, we recommend NOT sending samples on Friday afternoon or before a public holiday. Please note that if the sample degrades due to late shipment, it is considered the customer’s responsibility.
Why might my blood test results vary between different labs?
It’s important to understand that while all laboratories aim to deliver the most accurate results, variations between labs can occur. This is due to several factors, such as differences in the methods used to analyze samples, the precision of the equipment, the calibration of machines, and even how the samples are handled and stored. This does not necessarily mean that one lab’s results are wrong and another’s are right. Instead, it means that there might be slight differences between results due to these variable factors. To ensure consistency in our at-home testing service, we use a single lab to process all samples. This allows us to maintain control over many of these variables and provide you with the most consistent and reliable results possible.
Are there any medical conditions or medications that might make it unsafe to use this at-home blood test kit?
There are several medical conditions and medications that could potentially pose risks when using our at-home blood test kit. If you have a condition that affects blood clotting, such as a blood clotting disorder or if you're taking anticoagulant medication (blood thinners), we advise against using the kit. Similarly, individuals with blood-related disorders like hemophilia, other bleeding disorders, or a history of fainting with needle sticks or blood draws should also exercise caution. Additionally, those with poor peripheral circulation, such as individuals with diabetes or Raynaud's disease, may encounter difficulties in obtaining an adequate sample. If you are unsure about your condition it's best to consult with your healthcare provider to determine if an at-home blood test is suitable for you based on your specific medical circumstances. Our at-home blood test kit is designed for convenience and to supplement your regular health checks, but it's crucial that it's used safely.
What should I do if I use the at-home blood test kit and experience prolonged bleeding or bruising?
If you experience prolonged bleeding or significant bruising after using the at-home blood test kit, please seek immediate medical attention. It's important to note that these symptoms could be signs of an underlying condition that affects your blood's ability to clot, and you should discuss this with your healthcare provider. If you are experiencing an emergency, please dial the local emergency number right away.
