LEARN MORE ABOUT WHAT'S INCLUDED:

 

Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a fatty substance in our blood which is produced naturally in the liver. Everyone has cholesterol. We need it to stay healthy because every cell in our body uses it. Some of this cholesterol comes from the food we eat.

There are two main types of cholesterol, one is good and the other is bad. Having too much bad cholesterol can cause problems as it can clog up your arteries increasing our risk of heart disease or having a stroke.

Our cholesterol test will measure: 

Total cholesterol – the overall amount of cholesterol in your blood.

Good cholesterol (called HDL) – this makes you less likely to have heart problems or a stroke

 

HbA1c

HbA1c is what’s known as glycated haemoglobin. This is something that’s made when the glucose (sugar) in your body sticks to your red blood cells. Your body can’t use the sugar properly, so more of it sticks to your blood cells and builds up in your blood.

Too much sugar in the blood damages your blood vessels. This damage can lead to serious problems in parts of your body like your eyes and feet.

Our HbA1c test will measure your average blood glucose (sugar) levels for the last two to three months.

 

Blood pressure

There are two measurements used to assess blood pressure:

Systolic pressure is the pressure exerted when your heart pumps, forcing blood to move through your arteries and Diastolic pressure is the pressure exerted when your heart is at rest, between beats

Ideally, we should all have blood pressure at or below 120 over 80 (120/80). Your Lifestyle Advisor will advise you on your results.

During this test we will be able to tell you what your Resting Heart Rate is (RHR)

 

BMI

BMI is a measure of whether you are a healthy weight for your height. However it is only a guide and, for some people, BMI may not take into account things like levels of muscle mass we have.

If your BMI is high, your Lifestyle Advisor can provide you with advice and support on losing weight and reducing your BMI

 

ECG Reading

This simple test can be used to check your hearts rhythm and electrical activity. Sensors can detect if your heart rhythm is normal or if atrial fibrillation (AF) is detected.

An abnormal ECG reading doesn’t always mean there is something wrong with your heart however a Lifestyle Advisor can advise you on your next steps.

 

Lung Age

A useful test to calculate an your lung age and a useful tool in encouraging someone to quit smoking (if applicable). A high lung age in relation to your chronological age can illustrate the likely negative impact of continued smoking on lung function. 

Other environmental and lifestyle choices can impact on your lungs so it’s a good test to have.

 

Waist Circumference

Getting your waist measured is a good way to check you're not carrying too much fat around your stomach, which can raise your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer and stroke.

You can have a healthy BMI and still have too much tummy fat, meaning you're still at risk of developing these diseases.

 

Cardiovascular Risk Screening

After your Health Check you'll be given your risk of developing a heart or circulation problem (such as heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes or kidney disease) over the next 10 years.

low – you have less than a 10% chance of a heart or circulation problem in the next 10 years

moderate – you have a 10-20% chance of a heart or circulation problem in the next 10 years

high – you have more than a 20% chance of a heart or circulation problem in the next 10 years
