Woman’s Health Values
The LOUNA Woman’s Health Values package measures the blood counts that particularly affect the well-being of women’s bodies.
The examinations included in the package provide valuable information on, for example, kidney, liver, and thyroid function. The package also includes a measurement of cholesterol levels, which provide information on the potential risks of cardiovascular diseases.
The Woman’s Health Values package also examines the levels of vitamin B12 and folate, which are important for women. Vitamin B12 and folate are essential in ensuring, for example, adequate red blood cell production. Any potential infections, changes in hormone levels, and skeletal metabolic disorders are also examined as part of the package. It is advisable to follow up on these levels with age.
The package also includes measurements of the so-called storage iron (ferritin), vitamin D, and fasting blood sugar levels.
To ensure you are aware of all the levels that affect your well-being now and in the future, we recommend ordering the Woman’s Health Values package regularly.

Mean corpuscular volume (E-MCV). MCV is part of the Complete blood count and Basic blood count.
Blood sugar, also known as glucose is one of the most important sources of energy for the body. We mainly obtain glucose from food, but cells can also produce it.
Folate affects the well-being of the brain and cells. Folate is water-soluble vitamin B9 that is obtained from food and produced by gut microbes.
Active vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is needed in the production of red blood cells and the functioning of the nervous system.
Vitamin D is essential to people. Almost all tissue needs it, in addition to which vitamin D is required for the absorption of calcium and phosphate.
Kidneys and urinary tract
Glomerular filtration rate
ALAT (Alanine transaminase)
Inflammation and infections
CRP is short for C-reactive protein (S-CRP). In healthy individuals, the liver continuously produces small amounts of CRP. Its amount increases considerably in connection with infections, inflammation, and tissue damage in the body.
Heart and blood vessels
Cholesterol is a lipid that, being insoluble in water, is transported in the bloodstream in ball-like lipoproteins made up of transport proteins and lipids.
Thyrotropin is a hormone regulating the functions of the thyroid. The test is performed when a thyroid disorder is suspected.
Fasting is required
Paastoa vaativissa tutkimuksissa tulee olla syömättä ja juomatta 10–12 tuntia ennen verikoetta. Tarvittaessa tuona aikana voi juoda lasin vettä.
Paastoverikokeet suosittelemme otettavaksi kello 8–10 välisenä aikana. Lue muista suosituksista täältä.
Diabeetikot noudattavat lääkäriltä saamaansa ohjeistusta paaston suhteen.
