Health Assessment

Health Assessment

Our new health assessment is available to keep you at your best. We can quickly measure a range of risk factors which can affect health. If you’re an athlete, then some of these can also affect sports performance.

Risk factors include raised blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, impaired blood sugar regulation, dehydration, abnormal variables in the urine, infection identifications, stressors of fatigue, body composition, and general dietary habits.

Personal medical history and lifestyle questionnaire

This helps us understands all the factors influencing your health so that we have a strong foundation to make positive changes.

Tests include:

Body Composition

We work out the percentage of lean muscle mass versus overall body fat composition, which can help you specify your goals and identify areas for improvement.

Cholesterol

Evidence strongly suggests that high cholesterol can increase your risk of heart disease, which is the leading cause of death both in the UK and worldwide. Our full lipid profile test identifies the exact levels of good and bad cholesterol in your body.

Blood Pressure

Many people have elevated blood pressure. If left untreated, high blood pressure increases your risk of a heart attack or stroke. We will manually measure your blood pressure to ensure that blood pressure is maintained at a healthy level.

Urine Analysis

Your kidneys get rid of waste material, minerals, fluids, and other substances from the blood to be passed in the urine. What you eat and drink, how much you exercise, and how well your kidneys work can affect what is in your urine. A urine sample will allow us to analyse your kidney function where we can then identify various parameters such as urinary tract infections, dehydration, fevers, diabetes etc.

Diabetes

Over half a million people in the UK have diabetes without knowing it. With a thorough blood test, which gives an average diabetic count of the previous 3 months, we can identify if your blood sugar levels are too high, indicating possible diabetes risks. From these results, we can help you manage your blood glucose levels through a tailor-made nutritional plan.

Iron deficiency

Iron deficiency anaemia is a condition where a lack of iron in the body leads to a reduction in the number of red blood cells. Common symptoms include tiredness, lethargy, lack of energy and shortness of breath. With a simple blood test, we will be able to identify whether you are anaemic. If so, our individualised nutritional plan would then be tailored to increase the levels of iron in your body naturally.

SpO2 and Pulse check

This non-invasive assessment measures arterial blood oxygen saturation, together with your pulse rate (resting heart rate). This can be used as a tool to measure your fitness levels and also to ensure that your healthy body function is keeping up with the demands of your body (i.e. blood flow to organs and muscles).

The assessment can take place at our clinic, or onsite at your facility or workplace.

We analyze the results and identify any risks. We also provide the next steps for health improvement.
