Unfortunately due to Brexit changes (early 2021) this service is for now unavailable to Irish residents. I have reached out to Forth and they are looking at ways to once more provide this service in the coming year. I will keep you posted with any updates. This leaves us with our local GP services, a few limited direct to consumer options here in Ireland, and the specialist providers that I am connected to as listed under services.

Home delivery kit

Home delivery kit with finger prick testing saves you the hassle of going to the doctor, allows me to recommend specialist tests that can often be met with a negative sigh at the doctors office and allows you to be in control of your tests and results with their helpful app and live tracking.

I have created a list of the tests which I feel are best on the page linked below; and will meet your needs whether you are a patient struggling with health challenges, someone clued in regarding the importance of health checking or an athlete training in endurance, strength or HIIT training. Neat eh?

Specialist athlete testing from Forthedge

I have also teamed up with FORTHEDGE to provide a comprehensive list of athlete and performance specific tests all on the same platform page as linked here.

These tests provide invaluable information to the hard training athlete. I encourage all athletes to at least test yearly if not 6-monthly to keep on top of recovery, performance, your immune system, red cell markers, inflammation and more.

This is something that I learned a lot about while working with the high-performance Irish track and field athletes and the specialist testing services provided to them. To this I added my own knowledge of more comprehensive testing to cover more than just red cell and white cell markers.

The details….

I am delighted to partner with Forth, an innovative biomarker tracking service which helps you navigate your way to better health using simple at-home finger-prick blood tests.

If you follow this link it will take you straight to a special page that I have created with Forth that lists the best of their tests in my opinion to cover the needs of all the clients that I see, hence creating more simplicity for you when choosing a test.

Why Test? What it says on the tin…..
