Health Check Image

Feeling healthier starts with a health check

Your health check will identify areas you can improve, so you can take action and look after your long-term health.

You’ll receive instant results of some important health measures including BMI, blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol. You’ll leave with a report that contains an overview of your results, and some valuable advice from your Friendlies pharmacist.

  • Understand BMI

    Body Mass Index or BMI is a more reliable health indicator than weight alone. Knowing your BMI can help you set goals and take practical steps through a healthy lifestyle.

  • Know your cholesterol

    High cholesterol levels can be reversed once you know where you stand. You can help reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke.

  • Measure your blood glucose

    High levels of glucose in the blood can lead to diabetes, nerve damage and heart disease. Luckily it’s often possible to reverse the risk if you identify it and make some lifestyle changes.

  • Check blood pressure

    Maintaining a healthy blood pressure can help you reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney damage, memory loss and loss of sight.
