  • It is always helpful to have a record of your latest health indices like blood pressure, pulse, weight, height, smoking status, and alcohol consumption. Based on the values you submit; we can provide you with useful health advice.

  • Please submit your readings to help us help you. Twice a year submission is desirable.

    • Blood pressure
      • Remember, high blood pressure increases risk of heart attack and stroke.
      • You might be living with undiagnosed hypertension as it can present without any symptom.
      • The upper reading is called systolic blood pressure and should be less than 140 mmHg (Less than 135 mmHg if you have diabetes).
      • The lower reading is called diastolic blood pressure and should be less than 90 mmHg (Less than 80 mmHg if you have diabetes).
      • It is best to strive for a reading of 130/80 mmHg or less.
      • You can check your BP in the following ways:
        • Use your own BP machine. These are easily available and very affordable so a useful gadget to possess.
        • Get BP checked by your pharmacist. They have been contracted to do this.
        • Book a 10-minute nurse appointment with us.
        • Share a reading with us if it is checked somewhere else (A&E, out of hours GP service, Urgent Care Centre, abroad, at your workplace, etc.)

    • Body Weight
    • Height
    • Body Mass Index
      • For most adults, if your BMI is:
        • below 18.5 – you're in the underweight range
        • 18.5 to 24.9 – you're in the healthy weight range
        • 25 to 29.9 – you're in the overweight range
        • 30 to 39.9 – you're in the obese range
        • 40 or above – you're in the severely obese range
      • If you have an Asian, Chinese, Middle Eastern, Black African or African-Caribbean family background you'll need to use a lower BMI score to measure overweight and obesity:
        • 23 to 27.4 – you're in the overweight range
        • 27.5 or above – you're in the obese range
      • BMI score has some limitations because it measures whether a person is carrying too much weight but not too much fat. For example, people who are very muscular, like professional sportspeople, can have a high BMI without much fat.
      • But for most people, BMI is a useful indication of whether they're a healthy weight.

    • Waist to height ratio:
      • A waist to height ratio of 0.5 or higher means you may have increased health risks so please seek help if it is the case
