Assessments

Understanding The Assessments

To help you understand whats involved in our assessments below is some information on the individual components of our assessments.

Assessment Details

 

Body fat percentage: We work out how much of your body is made up of fat and how much is lean tissue, such as muscle and bone. Combined with a Body Mass Index (BMI) measurement, this can indicate your ideal healthy weight.

 

Height and weight measurement: We combine and compare these measurements with other tests.

 

BMI: This is a ratio of your height to weight, which helps to indicate if you are at a healthy weight. People with a BMI of 25 and over can have a higher-than-average risk of health problems like diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.

 

Metabolic rate: This works out how many calories your body needs in a resting state. It can help you understand your daily calorie needs in order to manage your weight better.

 

Blood pressure and pulse rate: We check for higher-than-normal blood pressure (hypertension) as this means that the heart has to work harder to push blood around your body. Over the long term, this is associated with an increased risk of heart attack, stroke and kidney failure.

 

Electrocardiogram (ECG): This measures the electrical activity of the heart while you are at rest. An ECG can help identify problems with the heart such as coronary artery disease, an enlarged heart or disturbances in the electrical control of the heart (arrhythmia).

 

Lung function tests: Measurement of the flow of air through your lungs, the size and volume of your lungs, and how efficiently they work. Results can indicate early signs of lung disease and conditions such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis and asthma.

 

Measurement of heart and lung efficiency: We monitor your heart rate, oxygen uptake and lung response during exercise. Efficient heart and lung response is important for good levels of cardiovascular fitness.

 

Coronary heart disease risk score: We estimate the risk of a cardiovasvular event (heart attack, stroke) taking into account your age, sex, total cholesterol, High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and blood pressure.

 

Biochemistry profile: These tests focus on important functions in the body, identifying whether certain substances are at a normal level.

• The liver is vital for creating important hormones and proteins and breaking down toxic substances.

• Calcium levels are important in nerve and muscle function, as well as being an important part of bone structure.

• Kidney function is essential for removing the body’s waste products by filtering the blood.

• Gout test is a measurement of uric acid, which can lead to painful inflammation of joints if it builds up.

 

Full blood count: Including haemoglobin measurement and tests on your red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. These tests can check for anaemia and infections.

 

Cholesterol profile blood test: High cholesterol affects your heart and blood vessels and increases your risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

 

Diabetes blood test: We check for raised glucose levels which may indicate diabetes. This can usually be controlled with diet, exercise or medicines. If not controlled, it can increase the risk of problems such as heart disease and strokes, nerve damage and blindness.

 

Blood in stool test: Analysis of three stool specimens (samples of your bowel movement) to test for bowel cancer.

 

Thyroid function blood test: We measure your levels of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), which helps control the thyroid gland. This is the gland that releases the hormone thyroxine, which controls metabolism, this test is only offered to women over 50.

 

Urinalysis: This involves three tests on your urine sample to detect blood, glucose and protein, which can indicate an infection, diabetes or kidney problems.

 

Breast awareness instruction: We tell you about self-examination and general awareness of breast appearance and texture. Regular examination can help with early detection of abnormal changes in breast tissue.

 

Testicular awareness instruction: We tell you about self-examination and general awareness of testicular appearance and texture.

 

Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA): This can help detect early prostate cancer. We offer this test to all men aged 50 and over, and also to those aged 45 and over if there is a strong family history of prostate cancer. The results are accurate; however this is not a reliable test for prostate cancer and may miss and/or suggest the presence of a cancer where there is none. Your doctor will discuss this with you.

 

Diabetes risk score: We conduct a simple questionnaire looking at areas of your lifestyle that may increase your risk of diabetes. This will enable you to target your risk areas, and by addressing these, reduce the risk of developing diabetes.
