Taking Care of your Physical and Mental Wellbeing
This month is Mental Health & Wellbeing Month at Randox. Throughout the month, we’ll be highlighting how you can take care of your mental health and wellbeing to not only improve mood and self-esteem but also to promote the many physical health benefits associated with good mental healthcare.
Mental wellbeing is as important as physical health. For complete health and wellbeing, both must be given equal attention as one affects the other. When you’re in pain, your mental health will also be under strain as mindset plays a role in our pain threshold capacity. When you are under mental stress, your physical health can also pay the price. Such is the case for anxiety sufferers who quite often report stomach and bowel issues as a consequence.
At Randox Health our health checks are the most advanced in the world, helping to extend your life through the world’s most advanced technology. Testing up to 350 different markers of irregularity, deficiency and disease in the body, we can give you the most comprehensive picture of your overall health and wellbeing available.
Mental health issues, such as low mood, anxiety and depression, can sometimes be aggravated by certain deficiencies such as a shortage of vitamin D. While supplements are unlikely to eradicate a serious mental health issue, they may help to improve symptoms and should be a first-resort before more advanced treatment, such as antidepressants, are prescribed.
At Randox Health, you can be sure of the most advanced testing – including the areas of vitamin and mineral levels. Mental health and physical health are deeply connected. Make sure you know all you can about your physical wellbeing in order to address your mental wellbeing in the most informed and comphrehensive manner.

The large volume of participants is testament to the quality of our material and highlights further the trust and confidence laboratories have in RIQAS to help them accurately report their patient results.
RIQAS is world renowned for delivering flexible EQA solutions to help laboratories reduce the number of programmes required. Our RIQAS portfolio covers most areas of clinical testing including Haematology.
Our RIQAS Haematology programme combines 11 parameters in total and comprises the full blood count into a single sample. Designed with user convenience in mind, samples are supplied in a liquid ready-to-use format in primary tubes. Coupled with user-friendly reports, enabling at-a-glance performance assessment, preparation and evaluation time will be dramatically reduced in even the most demanding of laboratories.
Errors will be identified early thanks to the bi-weekly analysis of the Haematology programme, while reports are ready within a maximum of 72 hours from the date of submission and accreditation to ISO 17043:2010 allows the laboratory to take any necessary corrective actions.
