At Conon Bridge Pharmacy we can offer a range of health screening services including blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol.
Blood Pressure Screening
Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, affects around 30% of people in the Uk. High blood pressure increases the risk of heart disease and stroke so it’s important to know how to lower high blood pressure. Hypertension risk factors include obesity, drinking too much alcohol, smoking and family history
Diabetes screening tests are a good preventative method for catching the development of diabetes at an early stage.
Diabetes screening tests are becoming more common in the UK, as diabetes continue to grow.
Cholesterol is a fatty substance which is found in the blood known as a lipid.
Cholesterol is mostly made by the liver from the fatty foods we eat and plays an essential role in how cells in the body work.
Too much cholesterol in the blood (hyperlipidemia) can have a serious effect on your health as it increases your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
