Doesn't your doctor test for these 6 Blood Values? Why we do:

These markers give you a more complete picture of your health than a standard blood test:

These blood values are not always obvious, but are invaluable when it comes to preventing health problems. If your doctor doesn't test these, you can have these parameters determined at Blood Values Test. Here, we explain why you should measure these blood values:

6 belangrijke biomarkers die wij testen
  1. Vitamin D

Approximately 70% of the entire population has low levels of vitamin D and most people don't even realize it. There is still a lot that is unknown about vitamin D, but research has shown that low levels of vitamin D are related to factors such as your daily dose of sunlight and your absorption efficiency of vitamin D. As a result, some groups are at high risk of developing a vitamin D deficiency. The only way to find out if you are deficient in vitamin D is to have your vitamin D level measured by a blood test.


  1. HbA1c

HbA1c is now considered one of the best indicators of incipient diabetes. HbA1c shows your average sugar level over the last few months. This gives a better risk picture than glucose alone, as glucose is only a snapshot of sugar levels.

  1. ApoB

Apolipoprotein B is a substance that is connected to LDL-cholesterol. It has a sort of anchor function when LDL attaches to the wall of the veins (this is bad). It has recently been discovered that it is even a better indicator of cardiovascular disease than LDL (or any other test).

  1. hs-CRP

High-sensitivity C-reactive protein, or hs-CRP, measures inflammation - the body's response to internal damage - in the body. There is a link between high inflammation levels and many chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, dementia and cancer. Lowering your inflammation levels puts you at less risk for these diseases. There are a number of ways to measure your inflammation levels, but hs-CRP is currently the best way known.

  1. Magnesium

56% of the population has a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is a mineral that plays many important roles, including preventing heart disease and diabetes, regulating blood pressure and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. It is also essential for healthy cell functions. Many doctors do not know the difference between serum magnesium and RBC magnesium. Serum levels must be tightly regulated by the body, or the heart will stop beating. Therefore, serum concentration is usually maintained by your body, at the expense of magnesium levels in cells. Most labs just measure serum level and patients are falsely told that their magnesium is normal.
So it is better to measure Magnesium Intracellular.

Magnesium is part of chlorophyll, the green pigment found in plants. Green vegetables are therefore rich in magnesium. Most people only eat foods that are rich in energy, but lack nutrients. Preserved foods such as sugar, soda and even meat cause problems, because the biggest cause of magnesium deficiency is too few green vegetables.

  1. Thyroid-stimulating hormone(TSH)

Thyroid functions can make or break your health. More than 10% of the Dutch population will have a thyroid disorder sooner or later. Of these, 60% do not even notice it. The thyroid gland ensures that the body is not damaged by stress and diseases. It is also the largest catalyst for converting energy, muscle growth and a clear and sharp brain. A poorly functioning thyroid gland disrupts muscle growth and can cause your sports training to be ineffective. This is because the body cannot burn fat; because the thyroid gland works too slowly.

Is it not punishable to put this pertinent nonsense on the internet and to exploit it commercially? If not, it should be quickly regulated by law.

Angry, why respond anonymously because there's a lot of truth in it.

The association aims to promote safe and effective preventive health research and early diagnostics. More and more (serious) diseases are becoming treatable at an early stage. We believe that every citizen has the right to gain insight into his or her health in order to be reassured or to have the opportunity to choose early treatment to prevent worse. This contributes to the long-term health benefits of every citizen in the Netherlands but also for our society as a whole.

Pure nonsense. Pure commerce. You don't contribute to health gains but sell expensive tests that either give a false sense of security about health or often cause unjustified concern. Sensible laboratory research is perfectly available from your GP, unfortunately you supplement it with a lot of useless and expensive nonsense research for which there is no scientific basis.

Dear Gijs, We respect your opinion that you find it unjustified, but at the doctor's and within our health care system it is (fortunately) not possible to just ask for a preventive blood test, without a medical necessity. This would result in an unjustified increase in health care costs. People who want to have a blood test anyway, as a preventive test, at their own expense, are allowed to do so. We are, of course, responsible for providing good information before and after the results and for offering tests that have been scientifically validated.
