NHS HEALTH CHECKS
Every person in England between 40 and 75 is going to be offered an NHS Health Check, 'helping you prevents heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease'. Essentially it involves checking your weight, height, blood pressure and cholesterol -with a diabetes and kidney blood test for people with high blood pressure.
The idea is to catch high-risk people early and get them to make changes to their lifestyle which can reduce the risk of future disease.
Kidney blood test for people with high blood pressure. What is this test?
In my case blood test showed high cholesterol and high blood glucose, life style change reduced it.
Blood pressure, how accurate is the test devices? And how often are the test devices calibrated? Blue Crest blood pressure test showed that I am moving towards high blood pressure but all others are normal.
