About this test’s biomarkers

A blood biomarker is a substance or characteristic that can be measured in a person’s blood to indicate the presence or severity of a disease or condition. Biomarkers can be used for early detection, diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring treatment effectiveness. Examples of blood biomarkers include proteins, genetic mutations, and hormones.

Total Iron-binding Capacity (TIBC)

The Total Iron-binding Capacity (TIBC) test measures your blood’s capacity to bind and carry iron, also it gives an indication of the amount of iron that is available in the body. The results help in identifying iron deficiency or iron overload.

Affects

  • Energy
  • Sleep
  • Mood

Iron (Fe)

Iron is one of the essential minerals that are part of haemoglobin – the protein in our red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body. An unbalanced level of iron can cause a lot of health problems, such as anxiety, headache, and anaemia, and therefore it is an important biomarker to be tested.

Affects

  • Nausea
  • Muscle
  • Breathing

Unsaturated iron-binding capacity (UIBC)

Unsaturated Iron-Binding Capacity (UIBC) is a laboratory test that measures the amount of iron that can be bound to transferrin, a protein that transports iron in the blood. The UIBC test helps evaluate a person's iron status and the body's ability to transport and use iron.

Affects

  • Fatigue
  • Breathing
  • Energy

Ferritin

Ferritin is a protein that stores iron in cells and tissues of your body. Measuring ferritin shows the amount of iron that is stored and is an important indicator of an unbalanced level of iron.

Affects

  • Nausea
  • Appetite
  • Energy
  • Fatigue

Transferrin saturation (TSAT)

Transferrin is a protein that carries iron throughout your body. Transferrin saturation (TSAT) test provides a percentage of transferrin that is carrying iron and therefore it helps in determining the level of iron in your body.

Affects

  • Fatigue
  • Energy

Frequently Asked Questions
A home blood test kit is a self-testing device that allows you to take a blood sample in the comfort of your own home. You send the sample to a laboratory for testing, and the results are usually available online within a few days.
Using a home blood test kit provides several benefits such as convenience, privacy, and accessibility. You don't need to travel to a medical facility or wait in line, and you can perform the test in your own time. Also, you can receive the results in the comfort of your own home and without anyone else being aware.
We understand that taking a finger prick blood sample can be intimidating, particularly if you're doing it for the first time. That's why we have prepared a step-by-step instructional video to guide you through the process and help ensure that you collect an accurate sample.

To access the video, please click on the link "How To Video."

However, if you encounter any difficulties and are unable to collect a suitable sample, please don't worry. Simply get in touch with our customer support team at support@optimallyme.com and request a replacement kit.
Home blood test kits are generally accurate, but it is important to note that there is always a margin of error, just like with any medical test. The accuracy can depend on several factors, such as the quality of the kit, the instructions being followed, and the laboratory processing the test.
If you place an order for your test prior to noon on a weekday (Monday through Friday), we will dispatch your kit on the same day. We send out all our kits via Royal Mail second class post, and you can expect to receive it within 2-3 working days.
You will receive email notifications every step of the way from the moment the lab receives your sample and as soon as your results are ready you will be directed to your personal dashboard.
With most blood tests you should expect to receive your results within 48 hours of the lab receiving your sample. For a more accurate timeline please check each product page. With DNA tests it can take 4-6 weeks.
To view your results, you need to create an account with us during the checkout process when purchasing your test. Once you have created an account, you will have access to our OptimallyMe health dashboard where you can view your results, track progress, receive personalised recommendations and connect smart devices. See core features for more information.
Your results are available for you to download in a PDF format and share with your GP.
Each person's body is unique, and what is considered "normal" for one person may not be the same for another.

Optimal levels can help you feel your best and ensure that your body is functioning efficiently. Optimal blood levels can improve your energy levels, mood, cognitive function, and overall quality of life. This can make it easier to engage in daily activities and maintain a healthy lifestyle especially as you age as your body undergoes various changes, and maintaining optimal blood levels can help you stay healthy and active throughout your life.
Regrettably, currently, we are unable to offer the option to order our blood tests. However, we are working towards expanding our platform to enable customers to upload their own test results in the future. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to providing this valuable feature soon.

Failed biomarkers mean that one or more biomarkers couldn’t be tested or accurately measured from your blood sample. This could be due to haemolysis, insufficient sample volume, or other reasons.

If your biomarkers fail, don't worry. You’ll be notified by email, and credited depending on the number of failed biomarkers. You can then choose to repeat the testing process and get the results you need.

For more detailed information on why your sample might have failed, please read our article: How Can I Guarantee the Best Results From My At-Home Blood Testing Kit?
If your biomarkers fail, don't worry. You’ll be notified by email, and credited depending on the number of failed biomarkers. You can then choose to repeat the testing process and get the results you need. Please read our Refund Policy for more information on how we compensate when a sample fails.

Also, we strongly recommend you to read the article How Can I Guarantee the Best Results From My At-Home Blood Testing Kit? so that you can know the which steps to take to decrease the chance of your sample failing.
While we’ll try our best to help find a solution, at-home blood testing may not be for you right now. We want to make sure that everyone has access to their health data. So, the good news is that we’ll soon be introducing a phlebotomy service. This means you’ll be able to visit a participating nearby pharmacy or health clinic and have your blood drawn for you venously (through your veins), which you can then send to our lab for results.

This will be a quick and easy service that can be a great option for those struggling to take at-home tests – for example, those who experience poor circulation in their hands. Stay tuned for updates, and follow our Instagram @optimallyme to be the first to know!
