Feeling down? Maybe it's just a phase? Feeling down is a part of life, but if it lasts for a long time it can be a sign of depression. Our Depression Plus health check includes analysis for biomarkers and hormones that affect depression and fatigue. This health check is suitable for you who want to take a blood test to rule out the most common deficiencies that affect your energy and hormone levels

What do we analyze?

  • TSH and T4 free: These markers can indicate if you suffer from e.g. hypothyroidism (lack of thyroid hormone). Then you feel depressed, tired or powerless.
  • B12, cobalamin and B9: Lack of these vitamins can be a reason for anemia (lack of blood). Albumin and calcium are related in such a way that a reduction in albumin leads to a reduced calcium value. Calcium disturbance can cause depressive symptoms.
  • Currently, there are no blood tests that can establish a diagnosis for depression. Therefore, it is important to understand that there are other medical problems or factors that can cause depression.

    If negative thoughts and feelings take over everyday life and prevent you from doing what you usually do, then it may be time to seek professional help. Depression is the leading cause of ill health in the world and is one of the most common mental disorders. Depression is a serious condition that can affect anyone.
