In these 1-2-1 confidential checks we help you to be more aware of how lifestyle choices can affect you in day to day life in particular linked to your heart health. We will help you to make better sense of all of the numbers too.
This is a comprehensive Lipid Profiling Check accompanied with a Lifestyle Assessment and Glucose Check (no carbohydrate consumption for two hours prior to check).
Once we have your results and ratios, we can monitor to help you to achieve optimum health and wellbeing through lifestyle & behaviour change.
With this and the data from your Health Check(s) too you can make more informed decisions linked to your health and wellbeing – today and in the future.
Someone in the UK dies of a heart attack every six minutes and 47% of them are linked to high cholesterol.
High blood sugar could also mean you have Diabetes or have a high risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. There are 2.35 million diabetics in the UK. Let us make sure you’re not one of these number!
Our Health Checks (HC) and Blood, Sugar, Cholesterol and Lifestyle Checks (BSC) can be combined into one super 45 minute, 22 point comprehensive screening session. This can save time and offers employees a one-stop screening. Follow-ups can then be virtual depending on outcomes, re-testing recommendations and employer calendar.
Regular check-ups can help find potential health issues before they become a problem. When you see your Tonic Practitioner, with a full screening they are better able to detect health conditions or diseases early. Early detection gives you the best chance for getting the right treatment quickly, avoiding any complications.
The technical bit: Tonic partners with Fitech for our cholesterol and glucose testing. Assessments have an accuracy range of +/- 10%. For instance, this means a person’s actual cholesterol reading could be 6, but in one assessment show as 6.6 and in another 5.4 for example. Cholesterol readings are indicative of the overall position and should be taken with other factors such as weight, family history, smoking and high blood sugar. The NHS recommends that total Cholesterol should be less than 5, more than 5 gives an increased risk. Completing a full lipid test gives a much clearer picture, for example you could have high total cholesterol but also high HDL, which counter act and balances out the reading. In short, all readings need to be taken in context with all risk factors.
