Healthy Heart check in Winchester

Our Healthy Heart check provides you with an assessment of your risk of developing a heart or circulation problem (such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes or kidney disease) over the next 10 years. Get your Healthy Heart check in Winchester today by visiting our clinic. 

There are some things about your risk which you cannot change, such as your age, ethnicity and family history. But the most important factors that influence your risk (such as smoking, your cholesterol level, weight, activity levels and blood pressure) can be changed.

Your Healthy Heart Check is comprehensive and includes a range of measurements and a discussion to ensure you fully understand the results and have some strategies for improving your risk score.

Fast testing

The tests for Cholesterol and Blood Glucose require small drops of blood which we take from a finger prick. We pop the drops onto testing strips and within a few minutes we have your result.

GET PIECE OF MIND

Cardiovascular Healthy Heart check: how it works

We undertake a range of tests to provide you with your cardiovascular risk assessment. These will include:

  • your body mass index (BMI, which is calculated using your height and weight
  • your blood pressure
  • your cholesterol levels
  • your alcohol use score
  • your physical activity assessment result
  • your diabetes risk assessment including fasting glucose test
  • your risk of developing cardiovascular disease in the next ten years.

We will describe this risk as low, moderate or high:

  • low – you have less than a 10% chance of a heart or circulation problem in the next 10 years
  • moderate – you have a 10% to 20% chance of a heart or circulation problem in the next 10 years
  • high – you have more than a 20% chance of a heart or circulation problem in the next 10 years

Your check will include a full explanation of the results and a discussion so that you can review lifestyle options to lower your risk.

 

Clinical check

Validated risk assessment tool

We use the Heart Age tool which uses calculations based on the JBS3 Cardiovascular Risk Assessment.

It assesses how healthy your heart is, how many years you could add to your heart age by making lifestyle changes, how blood pressure and cholesterol levels are important to heart age and how heart age can be reduced through diet and exercise.
