Our Functional Blood Test helps you gain an understanding of where your health is at and what you need to work on. Whilst traditional blood test laboratory analysis will simply compare a blood marker level against a large ‘normal’ range or ‘outside normal’ range, the Functional DX tests are looking for any deviations from optimal ranges. Furthermore, multiple blood markers are put through computer algorithms to assess the chances of particular body systems being dysfunctional. This way, imbalances can be addressed before they become physical problems, and even very healthy people can make further adjustments to optimise their health and wellness.
An important part of this kind of testing is the highly detailed Functional Health Report. Rather than leaving you with potential problems to worry about, the report will suggest ways to rectify any imbalances and where necessary, recommend further testing.
This great value blood test is our most popular as it reveals important information about the state of health of 13 body systems, including your vascular system, liver, kidneys, blood cells, thyroid and more.
This blood test is suitable for:
This test can be upgraded within 30 days of order to include more detailed testing if indicated. No further blood draw should be required for this. The package includes an up-to 30-minute telephone consultation to review the results.

Please note that this test requires a blood draw (phlebotomy) and for the blood to be centrifuged. The reason for the centrifuging is that this achieves the most reliable results. If needed, we can help you locate a suitable place to get your blood drawn and centrifuged. You will be responsible for organising and paying for the blood draw and returning the sample via Royal Mail Special Delivery post to the laboratory. Full secure packaging and instructions will be provided. Results arrive in approximately 2-3 weeks. This test is not a substitute for visiting your GP regarding a health problem.
The sophisticated interpretative software provides a complete algorithmic analysis of your blood test findings. Even if you are not familiar with biomarkers, this analysis goes beyond the numbers that indicate the initial changes in the body's functionality and finds subtle patterns. This information will be used to give advice on environment, diet and lifestyle to help make health improvements.
Your blood test results are arranged and interpreted in a unique way by the FDX Functional Health Report. The report focuses on your body’s systems and nutrient levels. It can identify any trends towards clinical dysfunction. These can be used alongside Remedios Health Coaching & Consultations to help you meet your health and wellness objectives. Depending on the test you take, you will receive a report of health results that ranges from 50 to 75 pages.
A quick online search will show many different blood test health checks available on the market and many are cheaper. So why use Remedios Health and Functional DX Professional Range?
There are a range of other Functional DX Professional Blood Tests available, including Coronary Health, Cognitive Health, Male & Female Fertility, and Male & Female specific Health Checks that include hormone markers, or the Reset range, which includes markers important in relation to ageing.
The FDX Check test is among the more affordable of the Professional Range and gives an excellent general assessment of your health. However, if you are willing to increase your budget, then it may be more informative and efficient to go directly for one of the ‘Ultra’ tests which include additional markers.
