Last month I took a general health test with Thriva (click the link for £10 off your first month) and the results which came back were insightful. Firstly, I wanted a cheap, but informative way of checking my health more for interest than anything else. I knew I’m relatively healthy any way, but wanted to see if any of my levels were off and if so, by how much.
The health check from Thriva is by far the cheapest I have found, it costs just £50 every 3 months (£40 for your first month if you use my link) and tests your health for a number of deficiencies as well as your liver function. You can also pause or cancel your subscription at any time and the list it tests against includes…
- Cholesterol levels
- Vitamin D (most people from the UK lack this)
- Liver Function
This could seem pretty basic for most, but you are paying a lot less than any private organisation and if you can’t get the NHS to check, this seems like the best thing to go for especially if you’re just curious or are a little worried about your general health.
My results were really insightful and were checked by a real doctor. I found out that all my levels were fine except vitamin D. I now take supplements to bring my levels up and hope I can get this to the recommended levels. My BMI is slightly on the higher side which I’m not overly worried about as I try to go to Crossfit as much as possible and I eat healthy following Joe Wick’s 15 minute meals.
Below is a screenshot of my results and feedback for you to marvel at. If you are curious like me then I 100% recommend you give it a go and see how you can improve your health and well-being.
