We know that your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and dementia increases with age. There are also certain things that will put you at even greater risk. These are:

  • Being overweight
  • Being physically inactive
  • Not eating healthily
  • Smoking
  • Drinking too much alcohol
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol

Both men and women can develop these conditions, and having one could increase your risk of developing another in the future.

  • In the brain a blocked artery or a bleed can cause a stroke
  • In the heart a blocked artery can cause a heart attack or angina
  • The kidneys can be damaged by high blood pressure or diabetes, causing chronic kidney disease and increasing your risk of having a heart attack
  • Being overweight and physically inactive can lead to type 2 diabetes
  • If unrecognised or unmanaged, type 2 diabetes could increase your risk of further health problems, including heart disease, kidney disease and stroke

What happens at the Health Check?

  • The check is to assess your risk of developing heart disease, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and stroke.
  • It will take about 20-30 minutes
  • You will be asked some simple questions. For example, about your family history and choices which may put your health at risk
  • We will record your height, weight, age, sex and ethnicity
  • We will check your blood pressure and cholesterol
