We can help you to significantly improve your health
Our health improvement programmes combine the information from your health assessment with the support of monthly health coaching calls to help you make continual improvements to your health
Each programme starts and ends with a 100 point health assessment to help you to set objectives and measure progress.
Your coach will be available to you over the phone and on email to help you stay on track.
Fitbit, Jawbone, Withings, Apple and other wearables can be integrated to give additional insight and recommendations
Our simple and short learning resources will help you to make better lifestyle decisions
I always thought that I was reasonably healthy. I wasn't worried when my GP wanted to test my cholesterol but I was shocked when he put me on statins for the rest of my life. Taking a pill everyday has really made me take my health far more seriously. With Live Smart’s help I've set an ambitious goal to reduce my risk by making a series of incremental changes to my life. I know it's not going to be easy, but I'm going to give it my best shot. Doing this by myself is an option but I'm betting I'll get far better results with LiveSmart than if I just relied on seeing my NHS doctor once a year.
Simply select this plan and checkout. During checkout you will be asked which sample collection method you would prefer. Finger prick self-collection is free, but not suitable for if you have poor circulation or calloused/hardened skin, clinics are £30 if one is near or a home visit is £45. After checkout we will send you your home kit or provide you with details on next steps for your clinic or home visit.
Once you’ve purchased your health improvement programme you’ll be asked to complete your health profile. This includes a full medical history (including your family medical history) and information on nutrition, exercise, lifestyle and mental health. You will also have the option to connect any other smart devices that you may have. We work with most major brands such as Fitbit, Jawbone, Withings and Apple etc.
Around 7 days after your sample collection your results will be available. They can be viewed online or through our app. The first thing you will see is your current Health Score. You can then dive into the details and see your blood test results. Once you’ve digested your results it's time to talk to your coach.
Your first coaching call will last around 1hr. Your coach is there to help you to set reasonable and achievable monthly objectives that work towards your long term goal. They are there to help you figure out personalised strategies for change that fit and enhance your lifestyle. They don’t tell you what to do but help you to find a plan that will work for you. They are also there support you when things get difficult and to be your biggest supporter when they go well.
As you make plans with your coach you will be start to add weekly and monthly tasks into your progress tracker. Each week we will remind you what you’re working and see if you’ve managed to achieve it. Once it’s achieved it you will then need to maintain this before tackling the next change. It’s designed to help you to make steady incremental steps that won’t feel too hard.
Most of us have a lot of positive feelings towards things that are bad for us. Chocolate or fried food is a good example of this. Our learning resources are there to help you to start to better understand the impact of these choices in the short and long term. It’s only by better understanding what these things are that we can start to make better, well-informed lifestyle decisions that will stick.
At the end of each month you will be asked to book in a review with your coach. It’s a time to celebrate your wins, analyse your loses and then figure out a new plan for the month ahead.
It’s time to find out how much of a difference you’ve made. For some this will be the end of their journey, others may want to set new more ambitious goals for the next 6 months. Whatever you wish to do, we promise to have significantly reduced your risk or we will work with you for free until we do.
All of our health checks are safe to complete during pregnancy as the only physical component is the blood test. You do need to make sure you note down if you are currently pregnant in your health profile so that your LiveSmart health professionals know your current situation.
Please note that none of our health checks should be used as a substitute for the recommended blood tests required by your primary care physician during pregnancy. They are also not designed to replace medical advice during your pregnancy.
If you are feeling unwell please consult your doctor. To get the most out of your LiveSmart assessment, we do suggest waiting until you have recovered from your illness to take the blood test. In addition, reporting in your health profile any recent illness or conditions will help your consulting LiveSmart team provide you with the appropriate advice and recommendations.
Depending on the collection method you have ordered you will receive clear instructions in your email confirmation of order of the next steps. Home blood sample collection kits are distributed in 1-2 working days following purchase. For clinic visits, you need to arrange an appointment time with one of our partner clinics. If you have chosen to have a phlebotomist visit you at home or come to your office, a nurse will contact you soon after your order to arrange a time for them to visit.
Yes! It’s very important that all the sample tubes are filled exactly as the instructions state. We need the purple tube filled at least halfway up the label and the yellow tube filled to the top of the label. If your samples are not filled adequately then it is highly likely the laboratory will not have enough blood to analyse all of the tests. If this happens, you will be offered to repeat the homekit, or you can look at the other collection methods and pay to visit a clinic or have a phlebotomist visit you at home.
There are a number of simple things to check you have organised prior to taking your blood sample. Make sure you are standing up, gravity helps with the blood flow. Make sure you are warm, as well as the surrounding room being warm. Massage down the palm of your hand to the tip of your finger. If the blood clots at the point of the pin prick, just wipe it away to restore the flow of blood. If you continue to struggle with your blood clotting, then you will need to use another lancet to make a second pin prick.
Once you have taken your blood samples, time is of the essence to get your sample back to the laboratory as quick as possible. The sample tubes are coated with chemicals which prevent the blood from clotting but this only works for a short period of time, after that the blood becomes haemolysed and won’t return accurate results. The fresher the blood gets to the lab, the more likely there will be no issues for the laboratory processing your sample.
We do include an express freepost service to make sure the sample gets from the post box to our lab as quickly as possible.
Tip: Take your sample first thing in the morning or at lunch so you get it into the post before the end of the day!
We use a CQC Registered (hyperlink: https://www.cqc.org.uk/provider/1-138186748) and UKAS accredited laboratory called County Pathology. As well as dealing with LiveSmart samples they also cater to a number of GPs, Insurance Providers and the NHS.
Your results and full analysis will be available on your personal, password protected dashboard within 10 working days of the lab receiving your blood sample.
You will have your own online clear dashboard that shows your results and analysis. The dashboard is divided by body system. For example, all of your indicators of kidney function will be graphed for you to view under the Kidney Health section, as well as the corresponding recommendations from the LiveSmart doctor.
After purchase the first thing you need to do is fill in your LiveSmart Health Profile. Once you have submitted your sample to our lab the it will then be processed and passed back to us. Your Health Profile and your blood results are combined and reviewed by a LiveSmart Doctor.
Then you’ll be emailed to notify you that your results are ready. To access them you simply need to log in to the account using your email address and password.
After your results are available to you, you are able to arrange a call for a results consultation. Please email our team via firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance to book in a time for your call.
If there are any issues with your results the LiveSmart doctor may suggest you visit your own GP to have further tests or investigations. Often any abnormal results need to be re-checked to see if it is a continual abnormality. Your results will also be available in a printable version should you wish to show your doctor. Our health coaches are also available for consultations over the telephone.
Yes you can! To print your raw blood results, head to “My Account” and select “Print results”. In addition, you can download the LiveSmart app for iPhone or Android where you can access your results on the go and show them to your healthcare provider.
Your blood lets you know how your body is doing. Whether it’s cholesterol, kidney & liver function, micronutrient levels or how well your white blood cells are doing - knowing how your body is working with (or against) your lifestyle can help you make changes to live smarter.
The LiveSmart tests should be your first step in being more proactive with your health. Book in your results consultation call after you get your results back.
