"JOINCIRCLES enables you to own your own medical data. After buying an advanced biochemistry test here, we’ll send your test kit out the next working day. When your kit arrives, do the test and call our courier to collect – follow the simple instructions in the kit. The lab will take around 21 working days to analyse your sample from the time they receive your sample. When your results are ready, I'll email them directly to you. To get the full value from your results, we highly recommend that you contact a healthcare practitioner from our ‘Practitioner Circle’ to take you through your results. This will help you understand how and where to focus your efforts. They may suggest additional relevant blood, blood spot and urine biochemistry tests that you can do going forward, to measure and track your risks and potentials. After your consult, you could book a wellness coaching appointment with Margie to get you started and keep you on track. Once you have your biochemistry results, you can start shopping for your personalised nutrition, environment and lifestyle choices on This is how you start on your journey towards optimal wellness! Please contact me if you need help choosing the right test and/or practitioner for your needs". Dr Heidi |

This CardioMetabolic Profile blood spot test allows early detection of major markers associated with metabolic/insulin resistance syndrome.

Benefits | Features

  • Use as a screening profile to help choose the most appropriate treatment recommendations to reduce the overall risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) and cardiovascular disease (CVD)
  • Regular testing can be used to assess risk of DM2 and to monitor people with DM2
  • Testing + clinical assessment can be reliable, predictive tools for determining overall cardiometabolic risk

More info

The incidence of CVD, obesity and DM2 is rising at an alarming rate. CVD is the leading cause of mortality for both men and women in the developed world; obesity, insulin resistance and DM2 significantly predispose someone to develop CVD, yet these conditions are potentially avoidable.

If we are to make an impact on the serious health and economic consequences of these diseases, we need to identify risk early enough for people to make lifestyle changes or seek medical help to avoid becoming a part of the rising statistics.

Cardiometabolic risk has been defined as 'the cluster of modifiable risk factors and markers that identify individuals at increased risk for cardiovascular disease (myocardial infarction, stroke, peripheral arterial disease) and type 2 diabetes.'

The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP)’s Adult Treatment Panel III (ATP III) has identified the metabolic syndrome/insulin resistance syndrome as a major risk factor for DM2 and CVD. NCEP-ATP III criteria for identifying metabolic syndrome include:

  • Hypertension/elevated blood pressure
  • Abdominal obesity
  • Atherogenic dyslipidemia (low HDL cholesterol, elevated triglycerides, elevated LDL cholesterol)
  • Prothrombotic/pro-inflammatory state
  • Insulin resistance/glucose intolerance

Who would benefit from this test?

  • Obesity
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Abnormal cholesterol levels
  • Heart disease
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Impaired fasting blood sugar
  • Impaired glucose tolerance
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney damage
