Minimize your risk of diseases with HHT’s personalized check-up programs

You may feel that it is unnecessary to go to hospital, visit your doctor or undergo tests while you are feeling well. However, there are a variety of health risks faced by everyone. Factors from your habits to familial predisposition (e.g. family members suffering from diabetes, heart disease, cancer etc.) can determine which health risks you face. This is where check-ups play a vital role in the early diagnosis of diseases. Spending a few hours having a check-up can provide you with all you need to know regarding your health and can prevent you from suffering serious health issues.

What are the benefits of having a check-up?

Early diagnosis can tell you whether you’re at higher risk of getting certain health problems, such as:

  • heart disease
  • diabetes
  • kidney disease
  • stroke

During the check-up you’ll also discuss how to reduce your risk of these conditions and dementia.

How will the HHT Health Check help me?

You will have your individual cardiovascular risk (risk of getting conditions related to the heart or circulation) calculated and explained to you.

While the cardiovascular risk levels vary from person to person, everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and some types of dementia.

At your Health Check you will be given advice on how to prevent them.

Your Health Check can detect potential health problems before they do real damage.

What happens at the HHT Health Check?

The health professional will ask you some questions about your lifestyle and family history, measure your height and weight, and take your blood pressure and do a blood test. The blood test will be done either before the check with a blood sample from your arm, or at the check.

Your blood test results can show your chances of getting heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes.

If you’re over 65, you will also be told the signs and symptoms of dementia to look out for.

You will then receive personalised advice to improve your risk. This could include but not limited to talking about:

  • how to improve your diet and the amount of physical activity you do
  • taking medicines to lower your blood pressure or cholesterol
  • how to lose weight or stop smoking

While waiting for your Check-up results you may:

  • Use the internet to check your e-mail.
  • Keep up with the news by watching TV, reading newspapers and magazines.
  • Breakfast and other complimentary food and beverages offered after your tests provide comfort during the few hours you will spend for your wellbeing.
